We believe that things could be better for women and their families The objective of the Institute is to make a difference to the health of women in the UK and internationally by creation of a leading centre of excellence for research, clinical care, education and training. From childhood to puberty, motherhood to menopause, maturity to old age, the lives of women around the world are a fascinating and complex journey filled with great joys and also suffering. From developmental problems to menstrual abnormalities, infertility to hormone deficiencies, premature labour to neonatal death, bladder problems to cancer, there are now amazing opportunities to make this journey better. The Institute team are dedicated to making things better. We believe that medicine must be holistic and combine the health of the body with the health of the mind. We aim to improve knowledge, practice and education in all aspects of women’s health.
