An increase in the number of complications following male circumcisions performed by non-professionals led to the establishment of a special clinic for religious circumcisions. The clinic is jointly funded by health organisations, the local authority and the Muslim community. Parents pay 45 pounds for the service, which is acceptable to the local Muslim community.
