New NICE recommendations for endometriosis patients

22 Mar 2024

GPs should offer a transvaginal ultrasound to all patients with suspected endometriosis.

NICE has also made changes to the recommended patient pathway to speed up diagnosis (currently between 7-9 years) including that initial pharmacological treatment, ultrasound and referral can all be done at the same time rather than as a stepwise process.

‘Earlier diagnosis of endometriosis (particularly endometriomas) is likely to lead to earlier treatment and reduce serious disease and subsequent costs,’ NICE said.

The Government launched its Women’s Health Strategy in 2022 to tackle the ‘gender health gap’ with a survey launched the following year. As a result, the government has said producing guidance for healthcare professionals, continuing to improve information and support for women is a priority.

As a result, we’re looking to partner with more brands and charities with a product or service to help support the NHS provide better care for menstrual and gynaecological conditions including endometriosis.
