Collection and usage attributes

Computation description:Help on this term

This indicator does not apply to practices where a trained clinician is available for insertion of a levonorgestrel-releasing intra-uterine system.

Local arrangements should ensure that a practice without a trained clinician knows which trained clinicians within the geographic region can insert a levonorgestrel-releasing intra-uterine system, and refers patients to these clinicians where clinically appropriate.

Computation:Help on this term

A healthcare setting where care is provided to patients with heavy menstrual bleeding which has documented evidence of local arrangements should record ‘Yes’. Otherwise, the healthcare setting should record ‘No'.
