To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps he is taking to promote awareness of endometriosis. [122419]

We will be making funds available to the National Endometriosis Society to help raise awareness of endometriosis among women and general practitioners. They will produce two leaflets. The first will be a leaflet to raise awareness among women of the condition and encourage those with symptoms to discuss them with their GP. They will also produce a leaflet for GPs that will highlight the signs and symptoms to help early diagnosis and encourage appropriate treatment.
