Our thanks to John for this. The start of the piece from NHS Forth Valley:
Some parents’ religion or belief means that they will want their male child to be circumcised as soon as possible after birth. NHS Scotland has developed a pathway to make sure that circumcisions can take place once it is clinically safe to do so.
Note: Female genital mutilation, sometimes referred to as female circumcision, is a serious crime and must not be supported by the NHS. It should be reported immediately as a child protection issue whether planned or undertaken in the UK or abroad.
