Non-Therapeutic Infant Male Circumcision Services in Greater Manchester

These pages provide advice for parents and guardians to help them choose the right circumcision service for their son.

In Greater Manchester circumcision is not provided by the NHS unless there is a medical reason. Many families however choose to have their son circumcised privately for religious or cultural reasons. To safeguard boys from the potential harm associated with a poorly conducted procedure parents need support to help them access a quality assured service. A leaflet is available that includes information about what to expect before, during and after the circumcision.

The five circumcision services listed below have achieved quality assurance status for 2015/16 for services provided to infant boys aged 12 months and under.  These services have voluntarily provided information to a group of experienced child health and wellbeing professionals.  Although the services have not been individually visited, they have sent in evidence to show they are providing a service at an appropriate standard.  This list is updated every year.  Service providers can download the self-assessment form on the right along with the standards their service will need to provide evidence against.  Information about the deadlines for the process will be available on this webpage from January 2014.
