Sexual Health Services are Finding it Hard to Make Ends Meet

If you work as part of a nurse agency or if you are looking to go through a nursing recruitment agency for work then you should know that a lot of sexual health services are at risk of being overwhelmed right now. A lot of this comes down to the monkeypox outbreak as it sweeps the country. Even those who work in a carers position and those who are seeking care jobs may find that there are more positions available within this sector. Many other countries, all across the globe have seen a huge spike in cases and they have also seen a lot of outbreaks since the first case got announced.

It is important to know that anyone is able to contract the virus but data has shown that a lot of the cases are in bisexual, or gay communities. It is also common with men who have sex with other men. It is not an STI but it is possible for it to be passed on through contact during sexual intercourse. It is also possible for it to be passed on through touching someone’s clothes. In an interview, the BASSH has come out to say that it looked like the cases were doubling every 20 days or so and that the organisation were somewhat worried about what was to come. The last thing that we need is another endemic but at the end of the day, there just aren’t enough staff to manage the cases as they stand right now. The lack of capacity and lack of staffing has a huge part to play here and it would seem that other core sexual health services are being pushed out more and more as time goes on. This has to be dealt with as soon as possible.
