Main aim of the charity

Research in ground breaking research

How the employee got involved and why

My wife is the founder of wellbeing of women nottingham branch, part of a national charity. On 15th Feb is 20th Wow Ball my wife will be hosting at the village hotel. we have 2 annual events every year, one is a garden party and the other a charity black tie dinner Ball. Plus other small ones. Wellbeing of Women is the UK’s leading women’s reproductive and gynaecological health charity which for over 55 years has been dedicated to saving and changing lives through research. Our pioneering work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment across the breadth of female reproductive and gynaecological health, including pregnancy & childbirth, gynaecological cancers, and overlooked areas like endometriosis and the menopause has helped save thousands of lives and ensure a better start for many babies. Many of the routine tests and treatments that form everyday clinical practice can be traced back to our work, such as the use of ultrasound in pregnancy and the importance of taking folic acid for the health of the unborn baby. We also funded Professor Henry Kitchener, who linked HPV to cervical cancer which led to the HPV vaccination program in schools, making cervical cancer preventable for the first time. Only 2.48% of publicly funded research is dedicated to reproductive health and childbirth which makes our work vital.
