The leading UK sexual health charity, the Family Planning Association (FPA), has appointed Julie Bentley as the chief executive. Ms Bentley, currently CEO of the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, joins at a time of heightened scrutiny of efforts to control the spread of sexually-transmitted infections (STIs). In raising awareness of the need to improve access to screening, the FPA has been a vocal critic of delays in deploying the national sexual health strategy (see Clinica No 1266, p 5).
