Women in the Meriden constituency are being encouraged to share their experiences, as well as their priorities, to help shape the first ever government-led Women’s Health Strategy, designed to increase the health and wellbeing outcomes of women in England.
Saqib Bhatti, Member of Parliament for Meriden is urging women, carers, clinicians and local organisations to respond to the call for evidence before it closes on Sunday 13 June to help shape the future of women’s healthcare.
With over 65,000 responses already, there has been an incredible reaction to the call for evidence. Women of all ages and backgrounds are being asked to respond in order to capture the varying health issues women experience over their lives and the significant differences between women and men in terms of access to services, experience of services and health outcomes.
“I am urging all women to come forward and respond to this call for evidence – these reforms must focus on delivering for women. This is an opportunity to put female voices right at the heart of health strategy.
“This consultation will also be key in understanding and responding to the impacts of COVID-19 on women’s health – supporting women through the unique challenges they’ve faced during the pandemic.
Minister for Women’s Health, Nadine Dorries added:
“I urge every woman to come forward and respond to the call for evidence. We want to hear about the experiences and priorities of every single woman, from all walks of life”
