Women's Health Strategy

I reiterate that what we are announcing today is a call for evidence from women everywhere in the UK: from every organisation and every friend, every partner, every family of every woman.

[Official Report, 8 March 2021, Vol. 690, c. 539.]

Letter of correction from the Minister for Patient Safety, Suicide Prevention and Mental Health, the hon. Member for Mid Bedfordshire (Ms Dorries).

I hope that, as we do on all issues related to health, we and the devolved nations will share data and the methods of collecting it, experience and the evidence to develop a women’s health strategy, which will one day be rolled out across the UK.

My hon. Friend is absolutely right that working with charities, organisations, the third sector and all women, and their families and friends, across the UK is really important.

It is really important that BAME women understand that we want to hear their stories and birth experiences. BAME women are five times more likely to die in childbirth than white women. We need to know what those issues are, and it is important to get that message out to those women.

Letter of correction from the Minister for Patient Safety, Suicide Prevention and Mental Health, the hon. Member for Mid Bedfordshire (Ms Dorries).

An error has been identified in my response to a question arising from the statement.

The correct response should have been:

It is really important that BAME women understand that we want to hear their stories and birth experiences. BAME women are just over four times more likely to die from causes associated with their pregnancy and childbirth than white women. We need to know what those issues are, and it is important to get that message out to those women.

It is really important to us that as many women from as many backgrounds and as many geographical locations as possible across the UK respond to this call for evidence.
