An initiative by the FGM National Clinical Group

Welcome to the FGM Resource

This is the online version of the Resource DVD that was launched in January 2010 to coincide with the FGM National Clinical Group’s bi-annual conference in London, UK.

Entirely funded by the charity’s patron, Baroness Ruth Rendell, the FGM Resource is targeted at specialists, practitioners and educators based in the UK and abroad, with the intentions to provide an overall context of FGM and its current standing within healthcare and political arenas.

The FGM Resource is divided into five concise but comprehensive chapters:
– Background
– UK Healthcare
– The deinfibulation procedure
– Ongoing care
– The future

The FGM National Clinical Group
We are the UK’s leading charity advocating for the end of the Female Genital Mutilation practice as well as championing education and support for healthcare specialists and advisers throughout the National Health Service and the wider community.

Founded in 2006 with the support of the Royal College of Nursing and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, we are committed to improving the lives of women and their daughters who are at risk of FGM via coordinated clinical networks and research.
