Emergency Hormonal Contraception
Please note, the EHC PGD has been amended so that it is no longer necessary to complete a face-to-face consultation with a patient in order to supply EHC. This will remain in place until the end of this year. A letter has been sent to all EHC-providing pharmacies on PharmOutcomes. Please look out for a message on there.
It is likely that we could see an increase in demand for EHC over the coming weeks. A consultation must still occur, however could be over the phone, or via video-link, etc. The EHC could then be bagged up and left for collection.
