Conservative Management of Prolapse – competency framework for primary care

This Primary Care Women’s Health Forum competency framework for conservative management of prolapse recognises that some clinicians will both fit and check pessaries while others will provide follow up care.

The principles involved apply to both levels of care and only the practical competencies will differ.

This guideline was correct at the time of going to print and the Primary Care Women’s Health Forum (PCWHF) will undertake annual reviews of this guidance to ensure in it remains in line with best practice: The next review is due in April 2019.
