BBC Walescast – FTWW Joins Women’s Health Takeover

This month, FTWW’s Engagement Officer, Dee, appeared on BBC Wales News Walescast Women’s Health takeover. 

Hosted by BBC Wales News Health Reporter Jenny Rees, Dee was delighted to join Mrs Julie Cornish, who heads up Wales’ first Pelvic Health Hub at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, and Dr Amara Naseem from Muslim Doctors Cymru to discuss health inequalities in Wales, and how they impact women, girls and those assigned female at birth.  

This programme ties in with BBC Wales’s coverage of the concerns raised by the #WomensHealthWales Coalition, which is co-chaired by FTWW and British Heart Foundation Cymru, who have highlighted systemic issues of female patients not being heard and having their health issues dismissed, leaving them misdiagnosed and having to push for diagnosis and treatment.

We thank FTWW Volunteers Kim Williams and Jessica Ricketts for bravely sharing their experiences, which are sadly all too-common, and we are fighting to change. We know that so many in Wales will relate to their stories, and that their words will make a difference. You can read more, here.
