HC Deb 21 June 2004 vol 422 c1273W
Mr. Salter

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what measures have been put in place to raise awareness of endometriosis amongst health professionals. [177655]

Miss Melanie Johnson

We are determined to improve the awareness of endometriosis and are providing funding to the National Endometriosis Society (NES) and the Endometriosis SHE (Simply Holistic Endometriosis) Trust through the Section 64 general grants scheme to help achieve this. We have provided £39,000 to NES to produce two information leaflets. One leaflet for women to encourage those with symptoms to discuss with their general practitioner (GP) and another for GPs to highlight the symptoms and refer women for investigation and treatment.
