England appoints ambassador to shake up women’s health

An appalling piece on the BBC. Extracts:

England’s first women’s health ambassador is calling for “one-stop shops” where women can sort out their health needs.

Dame Lesley Regan, also a practising doctor, wants to make it easier for women and girls to access care such as contraception and smear tests in the community.

Her new role aims to close the “gender health gap”…

“A one-stop shop is what I want for myself and what I want for my daughters and I’m sure it is what every other girl and woman wants and what every man and boy wants for the women in their lives, to be looked after that way,” Dame Lesley said…

Minister for women’s health Maria Caulfield said there was no quick fix to eradicate the gender health gap.

“Since we launched our women’s health call for evidence over a year ago, we have made great progress in raising the profile of women’s health,” she said.

Where to start? The “gender health gap” disadvantages males, not females, as we outline in our manifesto (pp.71-3). There is no “men’s health ambassador”, no minister for men’s health.
