Women's health... the BIG conversation

1. Women's health... the BIG conversation



Join our BIG conversation about women's health 

The first national plan for women's health, launched in 2022, sets out a 10-year ambition to boost the health and wellbeing of all women and girls.

Here in the North East and North Cumbria, we are making our own plans to make things better for women and girls, as part of our women's health programme. 


The NHS Integrated Care Board (ICB) is working with Healthwatch to better understand experiences of health and healthcare. We want to know what's working well and what we could improve. 


So, we are having a BIG conversation! One part of this is a survey to share your views. We want to hear from people who have experience of women's health issues or accessing health services. The survey will only take 10 minutes.


If you fill in the survey, you can join a prize draw for a £100 Love to Shop voucher. This survey closes on 8 September 2024.

Let's get talking about what matters to women and girls when it comes to their health…


We will store your information safely. We will use what you tell us anonymously to help us  to improve local services and  the information will be shared with NHS led teams working to improve services. If you choose to give us your email, we will ask how we can use this. We won't use it in any other way.


If you have any queries, need help filling in the survey or change your mind about taking part in this survey, please contact us on 0191 263 5321 or email us at info@hwnt.co.uk
