Patients in Basildon will no longer be entitled to free vasectomies or sterilisation treatment due to NHS funding cuts.Surely this should be exempt from any cuts? Surely!?
Originally, the Basildon and Brentwood clinical excellence group had recommended cutbacks which would see only male vasectomy services withdrawn.
But after a review, the group has also proposed withdrawing the availability of free female sterilisation treatments.Well, that’s equality for you!
