On 8 March, the Government announced a £25 million investment over the next two years to accelerate the development of women’s health hubs, so that women across England can get better access to care for essential services such as menstrual problems, contraception, menopause and more. Our initial aim is to have at least one women’s health hub within every integrated care system. Further detail on the implementation of the £25 million investment will be provided in due course.

Hubs aim to improve women’s access to and experience of services, and to reduce disparities in outcomes. There is no “one size fits all”, and hub models will look different in different places and should be tailored to the needs of local populations.
