In 2021 at the UKCS On-line Conference the consensus document was published. The UK Clinical Guideline: for best practice in the use of vaginal pessaries for pelvic organ prolapse (launched March 2021) aims to deliver a best practice guideline for healthcare professionals providing non-surgical treatment for pelvic organ prolapse using vaginal pessaries, and information for women seeking this treatment. The guideline aims to standardise pessary management by providing clinical guidance in pessary use that is based on the evidence.
