Women’s Health Strategy

The Pelvic Partnership developed a submission in response to the UK Government’s Women’s Health Strategy: Call for evidence for England.

Through our volunteer helpline and Facebook support group for women with PGP, we hear directly from women about their experiences of PGP, in engaging with healthcare professionals and accessing treatment. To develop our response to the call for evidence, we surveyed women with PGP to ask their views on access to healthcare to supplement the results of an earlier survey we undertook in June 2018. 

You can access short summaries of the results below:

Pelvic Partnership Access to healthcare survey March 2021 to healthcare and treatment

Pelvic Partnership PGP survey June 2018

We then used these findings to develop recommendations which focus on:

  • increasing awareness of PGP
  • better identification of symptoms and early intervention
  • reducing inequalities in access to care
  • investment in better evidence about the physical, mental and economic impacts of PGP.
