Petition to support the Sexology Team of Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands

Dear colleagues in Sexology science, patient care and education of the ESSM, IASR en COST,

Recently, we – staff members of the outpatient clinic Psychosomatic Gynaecology and Sexology of the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) – were confronted with the message that the managers of our Medical Center will ‘economize strongly on our outpatient clinic and research group’. This is another way of saying that, in consequence, our outpatient clinic and research group will be eliminated.
We really cannot accept this.
We urgently need your help to support us in our endeavour to save our outpatient clinic and research group. We need to convince the Board of Directors of our Medical Center of the value and significance of our group. We kindly ask you to help us in this.
Can you all please sign and spread this petition?

Warm regards, on behalf of our team,
Moniek ter Kuile and Stephanie Both
