Benenden Hospital launches new service to help combat female health issues

Launch of Benenden Hospital's female health hub

A female health hub which provides easy to access information on a range of women’s health issues including menopause, has been launched.

What does the Female Health Hub offer?

The hub, aimed at women of all ages, acts as a point of reference to put women in control of their own health. It provides information on key areas of physical and mental wellbeing. Women can read about a variety of topics including: the signs and symptoms of the menopause, what is endometriosis, living with pelvic inflammatory disease and support for heavy and painful periods.

It also provides short videos from Benenden Hospital’s team of Consultant Gynaecologists, who offer advice and support on topical women’s health issues.

Ending the taboo surrounding women's health issues

Women’s health concerns are often thought about as a taboo subject and more needs to be done to support women up and down the country. Rowan Connell, Medical Director and Consultant Gynaecologist at Benenden Hospital said: “Women’s health is an important topic and is something that isn’t talked about enough. We want to provide women with as much information as we can.

“At Benenden Hospital we have a team of expert Gynaecologists who treat various female health issues including chronic pelvic pain, endometriosis, and heavy periods. We offer a range of private gynaecology treatments such as hysterectomy, NovaSure endometrial ablation, a procedure which removes a layer of tissue (endometrium) that lines the uterus to stop or reduce heavy periods and Mirena coil fitting.

“If you’re looking for advice on issues that are affecting your health, the first point of contact would be your GP. Alternatively, you can access our female health hub”.
