Women’s health

Even though women are generally more likely to visit their GP than men1, the UK’s healthcare system doesn’t always fully support their needs. It can take a long time for certain conditions to be diagnosed, while more common complaints might not be treated as a priority. This women's health service lets employees and their families get reliable, practical guidance for complex issues and day-to-day concerns, including:


  • Gynaecology, including vaginal and cervical health
  • Common female cancers
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis
  • Period pain and understanding the menstrual cycle
  • Sexual health and contraception options, guidance and management
  • Nutrition, exercise and fitness

Why investing in women’s health support in the workplace matters


Supporting your business starts with supporting your greatest asset – your people. Offering a women’s health service to your employees will not only help keep the female workforce healthy, which could improve the team’s performance, it could also help you to attract and retain the right people.
