Go to and give a review of the hospital, the doctor, the clinic who needs a compliment or a piece of ‘constructive criticism’. This website has already resulted in better treatment on a children’s ward. It’s a brilliant way for us to comment on sexual health services as you can remain anonymous. When completed, chose HVA as ‘your charity’ and we get 5p. Hey, every little helps!

Back copies of Sphere

You can also order back copies of Sphere.  For instance you can read a talk on the psychology of having herpes simplex given by Dr John Green on “Getting your head around it”.

He made us laugh! A total of ten pages printed in two successive journals. We print an almost verbatim report of his talk including the question and answer session and his views on the (non-issue) of the Crown Prosecution Service’s guidelines on ‘deliberate infection with an STI’.  His attitude was that if he was called as an expert witness, he would use the court to ridicule the idea of attempting to bring a case about this. But he does not expect, ever, to see a person in the dock for transmitting herpes simplex.  He laughed and said something about how you cannot call herpes simplex ‘a serious condition’. His whole talk was very amusing and the report is sprinkled with [LAUGHTER] notes so that readers can feel what it was like to be in the room. (They are in SPHEREs 21/3 and 21/4.)
