EllaOne contraceptive pill
17 June 2015: The media have been reporting on the emergency contraceptive pill ellaOne. BBC News focused on it now being available to under 16s.
Speaking to BBC News, Royal Pharmaceutical Society spokesperson Neal Patel said: “At the moment we’ve got the lowest level of teenage pregnancy in the UK we’ve ever had… so this is about widening access to younger people especially, to try and reduce the amount of teenage pregnancy. We think it’s a really positive move that pharmacists can actually extend the services they already offer to younger people to try and offer help and support when people have had unprotected sex or contraceptive failure.”
