To make sure our information is reliable, up-to-date and easy to understand, we:
- ask women and their partners to read it and give feedback
- get expert advice from healthcare professionals
- use the latest medical and clinical evidence
- review each topic at least every 3 years
- write in plain English to make it accessible to the widest range of people.
We rely on a number of sources to gather evidence for our information. Our information is in line with accepted national or international clinical guidelines where possible. Where no guidelines exist, we use high quality research, such as systematic reviews, published clinical trials data or a consensus review of experts. We also use medical textbooks, journals and government publications. If you’d like more information on the sources we use, please feel free to contact us.
