DFSRH - Clinical experience and assessment

We are only able to accept applications for the DFSRH clinical experience and assessment from clinicians on a substantive contract working in Camden, Islington, Brent or Hillingdon.

If you do not work in one of these areas please contact the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare or phone 020 7724 5647 to find out who coordinates the delivery of this training in your area.

If you are not employed by CNWL you must provide additional documentation before you are permitted to see patients within our service. Please contact Ceri Gifford, Training Administrator for more information.

Timetabling your practical training

Once you have been accepted for the training programme, the training administrator will contact you to identify suitable sessions for you to attend. You will then be sent a draft timetable to review and approve.

You will be scheduled six  sessions (2.5 hour each time). Contraceptive sessions are delivered at Margaret Pyke Centre (Camden), Archway Centre (Islington), Hillside Primary Care Centre (Brent), Uxbridge Health Centre (Hillingdon) and in our community clinics in Camden, Islington, Brent and Hillingdon from Monday to Friday only. Ideally, we try to arrange your training so that you attend two sessions a day on the same day over three consecutive weeks (e.g. 09:00-11:30 and 12:00-14:30 on three consecutive Tuesdays). However, this isn’t always possible due to both trainer and trainee availability and in this situation we would work out the best possible timetable.

If we need to reschedule your training due to clinic or staffing changes, we will give you as much notice as possible and we will aim to reschedule your sessions at a convenient time for you.


The fee for the clinical experience and assessment is £600. This is in addition to the fees payable to the FSRH for the e-portfolio, eKA, yearly subscription to the FSRH and registration of the diploma. 

For an application form and payment details please contact Ceri Gifford, Training Administrator.
