On 22nd March 2018 Verity Trustees Alison and Caroline proudly attended the first All Party Parliamentary Group Women’s Health conference at the Houses of Common. This has been part of the ongoing work to look into women’s health and their experiences being carried out by the committee.
Verity were invited to exhibit which allowed us to connect with important ministers un relation to PCOS and individual’s experiences with the NHS. The APPG has been useful to help network with various professionals and we have some great projects that we are working on with other organisations of the back of these meetings.
Keeping PCOS in the minds of MPs, health professionals and the public is key to further research, media information and public awareness.
