The demand for NHS women’s services is increasing right across the UK.Cases of cervical cancer are on the rise, mainly due to younger women and some women from ethnic minorities, being reluctant to participate in national screening programmes. Secondly, an ageing population has seen an increase in other cancers like ovarian, vulval and vaginal cancers. While the incidence of endometrial cancer is increasing as a result of an aging population, a decrease in hysterectomy rates and an increase in obesity.
This all puts extra pressure on gynaecology departments.
