Prior Approval

Sterilisation is a procedure that permanently removes an individual’s fertility. Sterilisation can be carried out on a male (vasectomy) or female (normally by tubal occlusion) (NHS Choices). This policy is intended to ensure sterilisation is only carried out after appropriate discussion of alternatives. Sterilisation should only be considered after full counselling on complications, failure rates and all alternative contraceptive methods.
