The UK Government wants to know what people think a ‘Women’s Health Service Strategy’ should be. https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/womens-health-strategy-call-for-evidence/womens-health-strategy-call-for-evidence?fbclid=IwAR2tY1zoiFfA35mof0vMUjaAe9pO5WJw4NNLdN1wSxVxriOiRSDqKPgjwtQ
So, what is the osteopathic take on this? These are the questions the government is seeking comments and evidence about (see below). It is in support of the Integration and Innovation White Paper for a Health and care Bill. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/working-together-to-improve-health-and-social-care-for-all
