Take part in our campaign to improve endometriosis care
During Endometriosis Action Month 2022 we launched a campaign to improve endometriosis care by updating the national guidance on endometriosis, the NICE (National Institute for Health & Care Excellence) guideline on endometriosis diagnosis and management.
We are asking our supporters to write to their MPs to ask them to sign an Early Day Motion asking for the NICE guideline to be updated. Click here to find out more.
Please complete our new survey on accessing care for endometriosis
Is the fallout from the Covid pandemic still affecting your ability to get NHS care for your endometriosis? NHS services are recovering from the impact of the Covid pandemic, but some have not yet returned to pre-pandemic capacity, and there is additional demand due to the pandemic backlog.
We know that some in the endometriosis community are still having problems accessing gynaecology and endometriosis specialist centre care including long waiting times for appointments and surgery. Can you take the time to complete our new survey and tell us your current experience? We want to shape NHS care to provide better care for those with the disease, and we need up-to-date data and insights to back up our campaigning for changes to improve care.
This survey is similar to the one that over 2,500 of you completed back in June and July 2021. Thanks to all of you who responded, we were able to help explain to policy makers and journalists how the pandemic was affecting endometriosis care.
Please consider completing this latest survey and sharing it for wider reach. Thanks as ever for your support!

Ask your workplace to become an Endometriosis Friendly Employer
We have launched an Endometriosis Friendly Employer scheme to encourage organisations to create an open environment for talking about endometriosis. Through the scheme, we hope both you and your employer will have the confidence to talk about what support you might need to deliver your job. Ask your employer to sign up today.
Distribute our leaflets
Petitions can be a good way to raise awareness of endometriosis and ask for change. However, a successful petition requires a lot of work, including how it is written and what it asks for, as well as promoting the petition to generate support. Please see our guidance on petitions for more information.
