Specialist services for FGM survivors vary considerably across the UK. We will hear from specialist FGM Midwife and PhD student Juliet Albert who is exploring current service provision in the UK. We will hear the evidence around important issues affecting current FGM care including:- ensuring we provide up-to-date information to women on their anatomy and physiology; NHS England enhanced dataset consultation; the recent FGM conviction and it’s impact upon safeguarding assessments and FGM practising communities; ensuring we provide culturally-safe trauma-informed care; and the ACERS-UK project.
