Will we see teenage pregnancies rise?

Pregnancy Peterborough
With all these “cuts” to central government funding for Peterborough City Council, one area that I am worried about is teenage pregnancy.

In recent years we have read about reductions in the number of teenage pregnancies in the city.

I have now requested an update from Dr Liz Robin, Director of Public Health for Peterborough, and for assurances that support levels can be maintained.
