[Editorial] Gynaecological care: delivering the real essentials

Nearly 50% of women with fibroids and endometriosis in the UK were not told about the short-term or long-term complications from their treatment according to a survey of 2600 women published in a new report on barriers to women’s health care. The report, published on March 28, 2017, by the UK’s All Party Parliamentary Working Group on Women’s Health, also describes how 42% of women surveyed who had fibroids and endometriosis felt that they were not treated with dignity and respect. The experiences of patients with these common gynaecological conditions could potentially affect millions of women in the UK.
