Launch of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Women’s Health

By admin


On Wednesday 8th June, I delivered a speech at the House Of Commons at the launch of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Women’s Health. The group aims to empower women to ensure that they can make an informed choice about the best treatment for them and that they are treated with dignity and respect.

This is an issue close to my heart and although I cannot fault the care I received from the NHS I know of some women who have struggled for years, particularly those suffering from chronic gynaecological conditions.

The event was attended by many parliamentarians, and was supported by a number of representatives from charities and the medical and nursing Royal Colleges, patients, health professionals and the general public.
