Women's Health

The speciality of women's health encompasses sexual and reproductive health through contraception, pregnancy, childbirth, breast disease and the menopause. Some women in the UK experience inequality of access to health care and disadvantage which negatively impacts on outcomes.

Care integration can impact on quality of care and improve outcomes through prevention, early diagnosis, treatment and long-term supportive care. Entries for this category can be from individuals or teams responsible for planning or delivering integrated care pathways for this group of patients. Entries will be judged against the general criteria. Submissions could include one or more of the following elements:

  • Prompt diagnosis and referral to specialist services
  • Care and treatment offered in a range of settings promoting patient choice
  • Health promotion throughout the life span
  • A multidisciplinary approach which acknowledges the multifaceted nature of women's health 
  • Services that address inequality and related poor outcomes
