|Widen over-the-counter pill access, says NHS report|
The BBC Reports: The contraceptive pill should be available at pharmacies without a GP prescription, including to some under-16s, suggests an NHS report.
A pilot scheme found a significant drop in emergency contraception after the launch of over-the-counter pill access.
The project looked at two London areas with high teenage pregnancy rates.
The report also suggests widening the service to include girls as young as 13 - two schemes currently offer this in the Isle of Wight and Manchester.
Since 2008, five pharmacies in Southwark and Lambeth have offered oral contraception without a GP prescription - these boroughs have some of the highest teenage conception rates in Europe, and the highest in London.
