A new report from Endometriosis UK has revealed that the average diagnosis time in Wales has risen to 9 years and 11 months.

  • Debbie Shaffer, Founder of FTWW, and member of the Endometriosis Cymru team, will be joined by fellow team member and lead researcher, Professor Jacky Boivin (Cardiff University), to share information about the newly updated website.
  • Dr Robyn Jackowich (Cardiff University), who has led the development of the digital Endometriosis Cymru Symptom Reporting Tool, will explain how the tool has been developed and its aim of reducing diagnostic delays.
