We work with MPs in the UK parliament to address issues related to endometriosis and menstrual health. This includes through the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Endometriosis, for which Endometriosis UK provides the Secretariat.
Due to devolution in healthcare and the UK Parliament only being responsible for healthcare in England, some of our work with MPs is England focused, but there are also UK wide policy issues that are addressed for example anything to do with employment and the welfare system.
Our current Westminster campaign is on updating the NICE (National Institute for Health & Care Excellence) guideline on endometriosis. The guideline, while a step forward, has some gaps that need addressing and is nearly five years old and NICE is supposed to update guidelines every 5 years. We are asking our supporters to write to their MP to ask them to back our campaign to update guideline. Click here to find out more.
