Principles of Management - Lost Threads

In the first instance, the Bristol Referral Service would suggest a referral to Unity Sexual Health Clinic's LARC clinic.  See the LARC Proforma referral template.  Please note an ultrasound scan  report dated within 6 months of referral is required to ensure that the IUD/IUS is in situ and must accompany the referral for lost threads.

See also the Emergency IUD referral form.

If criteria are met, a referral letter will also be accepted, but this needs to go directly to the clinic as it is not currently on e-Referral.

For further information visit the Unity Sexual Health Website.
