Detail of outcome

For 14 weeks, from March to June 2021, the UK government sought views on women’s health issues and women’s experiences of the healthcare system in England. This first analytical report summarises feedback from nearly 100,000 individuals who responded to the ‘Women’s Health – Let’s talk about it’ survey component of the consultation. This has directly informed Our Vision for the Women’s Health Strategy for England.

A second report on the written submissions received from experts and organisations will be published by spring 2022, alongside the full Women’s Health Strategy for England.
