We actively support the delivery of local anaesthetic surgical procedures in the community by fully-accredited General Practitioners with a Special Interest in the relevant field. If you are a GP or surgeon interested in receiving clinical training and/or accreditation in No-Scalpel Vasectomy or Carpal Tunnel Decompression, please contact us.
Dr Alan Speers, an FSRH Registered and ASPC Accredited GP trainer, teaches No-Scalpel Vasectomy. Dr Yen Lam is an ASPC Accredited trainer who also works to train GPs in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Establishing a successful Vasectomy or Carpal Tunnel service requires significant managerial time and experience. Therefore we also provide consultancy on the financial, contractual, legal and administrative aspects.
The WHO recommends that No-Scalpel Vasectomy should supersede traditional vasectomy because the complication rate is far lower and the method is just as effective at achieving and maintaining sterility.
The training is provided by Dr Alan Speers. The FSRH training syllabus and log book is 55 pages long and deals with many competencies other than the ability to counsel a patient and safely perform their vasectomy.
For experienced traditional vasectomists
You can learn the technique in a single day of one-to-one hands-on tuition, though some prefer to have two or more sessions.
For clinicians with plenty of surgical experience but who are new to vasectomy
Usually need 2-3 sessions but you may like to have more in order to build up your confidence.
The clinical training is provided by Dr Yen Lam in either pre-operative assessment or surgical technique.
This training is to ensure accuracy of diagnosis and provision of effective non-surgical management. Usually attendance at three assessment clinic sessions is required.
Mastering the surgical technique of Carpal Tunnel Decompression depends on prior experience, but it usually needs 3 or more sessions.
Bespoke clinical training packages for both vasectomy and carpal tunnel can be worked out to suit individual requirements. Contact us for more information on the training provided and how to book.
