About this work


This is an audio recording of the AGM of the Brook Advisory Centre's AGM which took place in 1971. The speaker is introduced; this is Dr Malcolm Potts who talks about his vision for the provision of family planning (contraception) in terms of what kinds of contraception might be available and also be the most convenient for young people. He also comments on the differing pregnancy rates in young people around the World and the need for a non-invasive abortion service available to young people who are less than 12 weeks pregnant. There are some questions (speakers are a bit indistinct). He then answers questions about post-abortion/postpartum family planning and the best time to offer counselling or implementing contraception. 1 segment.

Technically this meeting was not the AGM (the box is marked 'AGM'), but a relatively short business meeting. It was a national meeting for Brook doctors, on the afternoon of 19th July 1971, chaired by Professor Fairweather (probably Denys V I Fairweather of UCH). The speakers were Dr Malcolm Potts on new methods of birth control and abortion, Dr Margaret Christie Brown on special counselling sessions, and Dr John Newton on Brook patients under 17 (source: Brook Annual Report 1971).
