Under 25s 'particularly vulnerable' to STIs


I agree with anonymous 25-Aug 7:40pm. Sex & relationship education is being delivered effectively in some schools by specialist nurses, but it needs to be available in all schools. A piecemeal approach is not good enough. I was one of those specialist nurses until being unlawfully suspended in 2002. My manager had what can only be described as a pathological hatred for me. The fact that that I was good at my work increased that hatred out of all proportion. Senior managers, HR and my union poodle rubber stamped what she wanted ( to hound me out of my post). This is happening on a large scale in nursing. So much so that the organizaion CAUSE was created, see Never mind I was given a large sum of money to keep my mouth shut ( money that would be better spent on (sex & relationship education). So, there is more to the problem than meets the eye. Not just funding. It has more to with incompetent,corrupt managers squandering precious funds. Kathleen White (Edinburgh)
