Endometriosis care needs greater awareness and timely access to services – Flynn

Sinn Féin MLA Órlaithí Flynn and spokesperson for mental health has called for greater awareness of the impact of Endometriosis on women’s health. 

The West Belfast MLA said;

“Endometriosis effects as many as one in ten women of childbearing age.

“The condition is when pieces of the womb are found elsewhere in the body and approximately 10% of sufferers experience severe symptoms. 

“While I welcome the additional two nursing posts for endometriosis care services here in the north, the waiting times to access treatment are unacceptably long.

“Women affected by Endometriosis can suffer daily until treated effectively.

“Symptoms range from physical discomfort to pain and can often impact on women’s mental health as a result.

“Sinn Féin stressed the need for regional Endometriosis centres in providing timely care and greater awareness of the condition in our “A Vision For Women’s Health” policy document. We continue to advocate for better services for women with Endometriosis.”
