Controlling the lives and bodies of young women through female genital mutilation has no place in modern Britain, the chief executive and general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing said. Dr Peter Carter added:
The RCN has worked with the Government on the development of training and guidance to help equip frontline staff with the skills they need to tackle this most sensitive of issues.
Nurses are dedicated to protecting their young female patients from this harm and will continue to support any initiatives that aim to do so.
