FSRH submits evidence on the treatment of endometriosis to Women's Health All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) Inquiry on informed choice

The Women’s Health All Party Parliamentary Group have been conducting an inquiry into whether women are given an informed choice about the treatment options available for particular conditions, in particular endometriosis and fibroids.

FSRH has responded to this call for evidence on the treatment of endometriosis, exploring how  local funding, commissioning and training arrangements for methods of long acting reversible methods of hormonal contraception (LARC), such as the Mirena (LNG-IUS), are resulting in reduced choice for women in the management of endometriosis and a postcode lottery with regard to access to this effective intervention.

Following an oral evidence session and a call for evidence, the Women’s Health APPG will be launching its report into informed choice on Monday 27th March 2017 in Parliament.

If you would be interested in attending the launch of this report, or would like any further information about the inquiry or the group’s work more generally, please contact appgwh@mailpbconsulting.co.uk
