About Us

Our clinic network is growing as part of our strategy to be the charity of choice for the women and men who turn to us for help, and for our funders. Our influence is growing too, as we work to increase public and political understanding of the issues women and men face in making reproductive choices.

Right Care Team

Right Care was launched on the 3rd September 2018 with an emphasis on ensuring the ‘right care, at the right time in the right place.’

Right Care encompasses clinical referrals and safeguarding. Both teams aim to support the centers in providing pre-attendance support to ensure appropriate resources are in place. They also aim to manage post- treatment care of clients e.g. NHS referrals, social worker referral, follow up care, escalations and appointments.

The Right Care team is undergoing a period of change following the September 2018 launch. 2019 will see the Right Care team undergo restructuring to bring in increased clinical input in the form of specific Right Care nurses and a Right Care Clinical Team Lead. A relaunch of the service following restructuring will aim to increase the presence of Right Care and improve the awareness within centers of the service they provide.
