All Party Parliamentary Group on Endometriosis

APPG on Endometriosis logo

The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Endometriosis was launched in 2018 to raise awareness of endometriosis in Parliament. The group brings together parliamentarians in Westminster from all political parties to debate the key issues affecting people with endometriosis, and investigate how patients can receive the support they need.

After the tragic death of the founding Chair Sir David Amess MP in October 2021, Hannah Bardell MP and Emma Hardy MP became Joint Chairs of the APPG. Click here to read our tribute to Sir David. 

In 2020, the APPG undertook a groundbreaking inquiry into endometriosis in the UK. Find out more about the inquiry and read the report it published here
