Providing safe, effective, timely and person centred care is at the heart of the Government’s Quality Strategy.

The clinical guidelines published by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 2006 deal with the investigation and management of endometriosis, and should help with timely diagnosis. Implementation of these guidelines is a matter for NHS boards, and we expect all bodies within boards that have responsibility for clinical governance to have regard to such clinical guidelines.
