Admission Free, registration required
Start Time 12:30
End Time 14:00

Join Afrah Qassim, CEO and Founder of Savera UK, female genital mutilation (FGM) survivors Babs Ceesay and Khatra Paterson, Dr Sharon Dixon (MBBS, MRCGP, DRCOG, DFFP, DCH) GP Partner and Treasurer and Trustee of Oxford Against Cutting, and Bryony Kendall, Named GP for safeguarding for NHS Cheshire and Merseyside, and the North West representative to the NHS England National Network of Named GPs for an online discussion about the responsibility of healthcare professionals in responding to FGM.

The discussion will be chaired by Aislinn O’Dwyer, Chair of Savara UK’s Board of Directors and East Cheshire NHS Trust.

The event will highlight the issue of FGM, its indicators and impact, and look at the responsibilities of healthcare professionals including GPs, midwives, medical students, nurses, and health visitors, while also discussing how specialist organisations can help better equip health professionals to respond to FGM.

The event takes place on The International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM, an annual event that allows those working to end FGM to celebrate achievements, advocate for the abandonment of the practice and to raise awareness.

If you have any accessibility requirements, please contact at least one week in advance of the event, so we can facilitate your needs.

This event is delivered by Savera UK in partnership with Oxford Against Cutting.
