Endometriosis UK calls for the Government to create a National Strategy for this long term condition.

This will set quality standards for endometriosis care. It will set out a clear clinical pathway for patients who have endometriosis.

The National Strategy will reduce diagnosis time, raise awareness of the condition and improve the quality of services. It will promote a multi-disciplinary approach, support patients to take an active part in their care and develop an evidence base to improve outcomes.

Endometriosis UK statement on availability of Visanne in the UK

"Treatments are a very individual choice and what works for one person won’t necessarily work for another. For this reason Endometriosis UK does not advocate specific treatments including drug treatments. However as an organisation we strongly believe that women in the UK should be able to choose the right drug treatment for them. In this sense we support the availability of all drug treatments in the UK for women with endometriosis."
