Suzanne Ash, interim Managing Director at Marie Stopes UK, said:

“We have worked hard with the Care Quality Commission to regain compliance and we’re grateful to them for their assistance.

“Since the inspections, we’ve made considerable changes to our management, governance and assurance processes, including extensive training of staff, and updating of policies. We have learned from this, and intend to continue our focus on providing the safe and compassionate care that women expect and deserve.”

About Marie Stopes UK

Marie Stopes UK is the leading independent provider of sexual and reproductive health services. Every year more than 70,000 women and men come to our centres for information, advice, professional care and support.  In addition to these face-to-face consultations, our 24hr confidential helpline One Call (0345 300 8090) offers advice or counselling day or night and last year received more than 300,000 calls.

Choice is fundamental to everything we do, and we respect the right of a woman to decide whether and when to have children. To achieve this we believe that all women should have access to comprehensive sexual health services, and that these services should be of the highest quality.
