As part of the new government strategy for women’s health, the member for the borough encourages women to come forward to testify.
Sara Britcliffe MP urges people across Hyndburn and Haslingden to share their healthcare experiences to help shape the future of women’s healthcare.
Women in Accrington, Lancashire and Rossendale, Lancashire can offer their views on access to services, experiences and health outcomes until 13 June.
First launched in March, there has already been an incredible response to the call for evidence, with over 75,000 women, organizations, clinicians and caregivers responding to date.
However, the responses from the Northwest represent only 11% of the total responses, which means that women in the region may not be adequately represented in the new strategy.
Tory Hyndburn and Haslingden MP Sara Britcliffe said: “Everyone should have confidence in the health and care we receive – but for too long women have known a system that is not designed to meet the needs of their needs.
“As we contemplate our recovery and rebuilding our NHS, we must seize this moment to deliver a system that truly delivers for women, and we want them to have a say in shaping the future of healthcare for women. the women.
“I would encourage the women of Hyndburn and Haslingden to come forward and share their experiences, so that together we can provide fairer, more equal and better health care for everyone in this country.”
The first of its kind, the Women’s Health Strategy will address women’s health in England throughout their lives, from adolescence to old age.
It will focus on health issues specific to women as well as the ways in which women experience health issues.
The themes of the call for testimonials include: the quality and accessibility of information and education on women’s health, understanding and responding to the impacts of Covid on women’s health and maximizing the women’s health in the workplace.
Women’s Health Minister Nadine Dorries said: “For generations women have lived in a health and care system designed primarily by men, for men.
“The number of responses to date has been incredible and I thank everyone who shared their experiences – these interim conclusions clearly underscore the need for decisive action.
“I now urge all the women of Hyndburn and Haslingden, if they have not yet done so, to come forward and answer the call for testimony. It is only by listening to the experiences and priorities of women from all walks of life that we can truly develop a strategy that works for all women.
