The UK Government has acknowledged that more needs to be done to address health inequalities as they affect women. In its call for evidence for its forthcoming women’s health strategy, it points out that for generations, women have lived with a health and care system mostly designed by – and for – men.

All women are entitled to expect access to care that addresses their needs. Yet many still face barriers to accessing services, poor patient experience, and delays in time to diagnosis, all of which impacts on outcomes.

  • How can services be redesigned to address women’s health needs, inequalities and experience?
  • What are the solutions to developing a health and care service that truly and equally meets the needs of women?
  • How can ICSs and other parts of the health and care system take a holistic approach to developing services that are fairer to women?
  • What is the role of technology and innovation in addressing these issues?

This HSJ webinar, run in association with Hologic brought together a small panel of experts to discuss these challenging and pressing questions.
