Opportunity for women to voice health issues

THERE are just a couple of weeks left for women to let the Government know what concerns they have about their health and wellbeing, and the way they are treated.

They have until 11.45pm on Sunday, June 13, to submit their experience and views, and thereby contribute to the development of the Women’s Health Strategy.

Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage – who was Minister of State for Care until February 2020 – urged women to make their voices heard, adding she was, “shocked to discover that, although female life expectancy is higher than men, women on average spend less of their life in good health”.

Thanking everyone who had submitted their opinions and observations so far, the current Minister for Women’s Health, Nadine Dorries, is asking more women to come forward with their evidence in the closing weeks of the consultation.

She said: “We want to hear about the experiences and priorities of every single woman, from all walks of life, to ensure we develop a strategy which works for everyone and reflects all of the health issues women face – not just the gynaecological ones.”
