Rebecca Evans MS, Welsh Labour’s Member of the Senedd for Gower, has welcomed the announcement from the Welsh Government that a specialist endometriosis nurse has been appointed in Swansea Bay University Health Board to improve services for the chronic condition which affects one in ten women.
The post is part of a million pound investment by the Welsh Labour Government which includes wider plans to improve women’s health services.
Welcoming the new announcement, Rebecca Evans MS said:
“I welcome the announcement from the Welsh Government that a new specialist endometriosis nurse has been appointed in Swansea Bay University Health Board.
“Endometriosis affects one in ten women. It can cause serious pain and seriously impact quality of life for those affected. This new appointment will help raise awareness, diagnosis, and treatment of this serious condition.
“I am determined that people with endometriosis in Gower get the service they deserve.”
