Goring Hall Hospital is launching a new campaign with Mumsnet

Goring Hall Hospital has partnered with parenting website Mumsnet to help thousands of women across Sussex get the answers they desperately need to a range of gynecological issues.

Launched in July, the partnership offers women practical and expert advice on how to access the treatment they need, whether it’s a new diagnosis or treating an existing condition.

Founded in 2000 by Justine Roberts, Mumsnet has since supported and led campaigns on issues affecting its mostly female users.

They are now beginning a groundbreaking partnership to give users the ability to submit women’s health questions directly to Dr. Sujata Gupta, one of the UK’s leading gynecologists with over 15 years experience in gynaecology.

Her areas of focus are endometriosis, menopause, gynecological cancers and painful periods.

“Thousands of women in Sussex struggle with the effects of a gynecological condition and yet often go undiagnosed for years,” she said.

“Often the biggest challenge is finding the right information, or the sense of embarrassment that comes with this type of condition.

“This is having a dramatic impact on how women interact with healthcare professionals, ultimately preventing them from asking the right questions and getting the diagnosis they need.”

Recent data, published by the Independent Healthcare Providers Network and The Patients Association in a report on patient choice, showed that women in most areas of the UK were waiting over six months to see a specialist.

The government recently announced a new strategy to address gaps in women’s healthcare with measures such as mandatory gynecology modules for junior doctors.

Adam Busby, acting clinical director of the Circle Health Group, of which Goring Hall Hospital is a part, said: “The more we share about gynecology and how to best diagnose it, the greater our chances of ending this harmful stigma.”

Mumsnet Founder and CEO Justine Roberts said: “Mumsnet users have frequently told us about their struggles to access essential health services for women, often with dire consequences.

“We’re excited that this partnership will enable women to seek expert advice through Mumsnet and give our users the opportunity to speak up for themselves as we continue to work to address decades of entrenched inequality in healthcare.”
