The event will run from 1pm until 4pm. 

The day will feature keynote speaker Dr Archana Dixit, Senior Gynaecologist at West Middlesex University Hospital, giving a talk entitled Life Course Experience of Women's Health. There will also be a session where women share their own health stories, sparking discussion around how health provision can be improved in Hounslow and beyond. 

Additionally, guests will be able to network, enjoy the light lunch that’s provided, and peruse the stands set up by several women’s health providers and experts from across Hounslow. 

The discussions and feedback from the day will be used by members of the Hounslow Borough Based Partnership to help shape the first Hounslow Women’s Health Strategy, which will empower women across the borough and beyond to improve their health services. 

The event is free and all women from the local area are welcome to attend. Anyone wishing to book their pace can do so via this link.

Councillor Samia Chaudhary, Hounslow Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, Public Health and Transformation, said:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for women to have their voices heard and work together to improve the ways we can access health services, as well as the services themselves. 

“I am looking forward to hearing women’s stories and seeing how our Public Health team and its partners will use this information to put together a strategy that will help women in Hounslow. Making health services accessible to all is a key Council aim, and events like this are a big part of that effort. I hope  women across the borough will come along and help us understand what we need to focus on to achieve better health outcomes.”
