What is a Women’s Health Hub?
Women’s Health Hubs bring together existing services to provide holistic, integrated, accessible care delivered by appropriately trained clinicians with the support of specialists, resulting in better outcomes for patients.
Easier access to basic women’s health services including contraception, menstrual health, menopause, abortion and screening is vital to ensure that women receive the care to which they have a right.
This Women’s Health Hub Toolkit has been designed by women’s health experts as a source of inspiration and practical advice for decision makers, commissioners and providers of women’s health services to set up a Hub for the holistic delivery of women’s health services for the local population.
