Reports by the RCOG and the BMS
In a major report on women’s health care published on 14 July 2011, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists called for a radical re-think on how women are treated by the NHS.
‘Women’s healthcare must focus on preventing ill health rather than “fire-fighting” disease… every woman should have a menopause “MoT” at 50 to address problems that could worsen later.’
The BMS, our parent charity, had earlier launched its own statement Hope for Women – Essential recommendations at its annual conference on 19th May 2011. Both organisations work closely together to help improve awareness of women’s post menopausal health issues.
The Statement was enclosed in an open letter from the chairman and chief executive of the BMS to the Secretary of State for Health.
