Intrauterine ball – a new copper intrauterine device

This is a ‘New Product Review’ from the FSRH on the intrauterine ball (IUB). It is otherwise known by the not so catchy title of SCu300B MIDI.

This is a copper intrauterine device. It has copper beads strung on a flexible frame. It is released from a 3.2mm diameter insertion tube and then coils into a spherical shape measuring 15mm across.

It lasts for 5 yrs, and it costs £38.

"I am so glad and grateful for being a member of NASGP's BOB locum chambers. I started with them in a critical period of my career as I was a newly-qualified GP, looking for work in a new area with a new virus hardly hitting the world and the jobs market.

Richard and Ali's help was a godsend. They introduced me to locum work in a friendly and kind manner, provided valuable support and excellent service through the ever-improving LocumDeck and NASGP website. With the help of the chambers, I received a face to face tutorial on Emis (I trained on SystmOne) and my online profile was promoted on a growing network of GP practices throughout Buckinghamshire, Oxford and Berkshire.

I was able to work in different GP practices with different staff and patient demographics, massively increasing my clinical experience, resilience and communication skills.

It also helped me funnelling down all the job offers I received through my locum work until I recently agreed for a salaried position in a GP practice that I love working at. "
