 British Schools, Colleges Urged To Have on Site Sexual Health Clinics

In a bid to improve teenagers' access to sex advice, a British charity has suggested that all secondary schools and colleges should have on site sexual health clinics.

According to the National Children's Bureau, every 11 to 18-year-old in the UK should get advice on contraception, pregnancy tests and screening for sexually transmitted diseases between lessons, reports the Telegraph.

The leading charity also said that sixth-formers should get compulsory sex education up to 18 - extending a requirement already in place for those under 16.

The conclusions have been made in two reports.

In a controversial conclusion, it is recommended that "all schools, together with their local authorities and primary care trusts, consider setting up on-site sexual health services".
