Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson, Sandra Gidley MP has highlighted that sexual health and contraception advice and support is being made harder to access for many people due to Government cost-cutting.

Responding to the Family Planning Association's report, which recommends that the NHS provide a wider choice of condoms, she said: "The FPA have missed the point. While their recommendation about condoms is a good one, they are ignoring the fact that access to youth and family planning clinics is being reduced because of government cost cutting.

"Many people do not have access to advice, let alone choice. This bigger problem must be tackled first."
