Survey by VMINTERACTIVE reveals current statistics of teenagers views on contraception ahead of 2020

• 86% of 16-19 year olds are aware of the morning after pill.
• Only 69% would seek the morning after pill for an abortion.
• Only 42% teenagers would be embarrassed to buy condoms.
• 89% teenagers are unaware of the health risks not covered by the morning after pill.

This year Click Pharmacy has had an 80% increase in the product sale of EllaOne also nicknamed ”The promiscuity pill” this would be linked to the efficiency of it being used up to 5 days after and economic value if your BMI is over 26, you take one rather than two of other brands of morning after pill. When you have a pill that can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected sex and so readily available in stores and online without a prescription, there is no doubt sales would rise. Controversy is wrapped around it, also being seen as ‘a form of abortion pill’ according to Norman Wells, director of the charity Family Education Trust.

VMINTERACTIVE has conducted a survey on 200 teenagers looking at the knowledge of different contraception, health risks not protected by contraception (apart from condoms) and also those who believe the morning after pill is a form of abortion. These findings prove that sexual education at school is not necessarily increasing awareness. Teenagers are more likely to have unprotected sex and order morning after pill as it’s more accessible rather than condoms.

‘EllaOne it’s the most effective pill on the market with 95% potency” states Jana Abelovska, pharmacy expert from Click Pharmacy, “however not something to be used regularly as it is a high dosage and is not great for the body.”

As a Health Tech company Click Pharmacy are a source of knowledge on these kinds of issues and want to offer the best advice of all the different options of contraception to people of all ages.

LaingBuisson data cited in Office for National Statistics’ Healthcare Expenditure Statistics

LaingBuisson welcomes the Office for National Statistics’ (ONS) publication of the Healthcare expenditure, UK Health Accounts: 2017.

Chosen provider of independent healthcare data to the ONS, LaingBuisson, contributed market data on homecare, care homes, private medical insurance, fertility treatment, cosmetic surgery, NHS private patient units and independent hospitals to the ONS’ annual report on expenditure in the UK healthcare market.

These statistics are also supplied to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Eurostat and are used to benchmark the UK’s healthcare expenditure against the healthcare expenditure of other countries.

The data for 2017, the latest complete year available in the series, showed that total UK healthcare expenditure amounted to £197.3 billion, or £2,998 per person. This represented an increase of 1.1%, the lowest rate of growth since the start of the series in 2013. This was the result of the slowdown in growth in Government spending and in contrast, non-government spending grew by 4.3% in real terms.

Non-government expenditure represented 21% of UK healthcare expenditure in 2017 and comprises out-of-pocket expenditure, voluntary health insurance, non-profit institutions serving households and enterprise financing.

William Laing, Data Director and founder of LaingBuisson, said:

“We are proud of our association with the ONS and that they have sufficient confidence in LaingBuisson’s data to include it in this important publication. Not only does this publication and the data within it inform healthcare expenditure in the UK but it is also used by global organisations such as the OECD, WHO and Eurostat. Being the ONS’ chosen provider of data on the independent healthcare sector is a seal of the quality and integrity of what we do.”
