To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the recommendations in the report by the all-party Parliamentary group on Sexual and Reproductive Health, entitled Women’s lives, women’s rights, whether his Department has plans to evaluate data collection processes, including GUMCAD, SHRAD and routinely entered GP SNOMED data, to examine the use of contraception.

There are currently no plans to evaluate SHRAD or SNOMED data collection processes to examine the use of contraception. GUMCAD is a sexually transmitted infection surveillance system and therefore does not include data on contraception use. Issues related to sexual and reproductive health data collection processes are being considered as part of the development process of the forthcoming Sexual and Reproductive Health Strategy.
