Katherine Fletcher MP is urging residents across South Ribble to respond to a call for evidence to understand the various health issues women experience, and the differences in terms of access to services and health outcomes.


Not all women experience the same things, so Katherine is hoping as many women as possible from all ages and backgrounds will share their opinion on what they think works well and what needs changing.

Katherine said: “All too often, it’s easy to label a problem as being down to hormones or to a certain stage in your life when that’s not always the case.

“I hear from many women and indeed have seen it amongst my own friends, how misunderstood and frustrated they often feel with a lack of, or slow diagnosis of health concerns.

“It’s important that we have as many views as possible and that’s why I’m urging everyone in South
Ribble to participate.”

You can participate in the call for evidence by completing the public survey online.
