Inspired by the publication of the Women’s Health Strategy in July 2022, this year’s International Women’s Day Conference will promote the key outcomes documented by the Government set out as a 10-year plan. Six points have been outlined as key priority areas of health to ensure a transformative change in our society. As always, Essex EQUIP aims to deliver an inspired, educational and empowered conference to provide the most up to date ambitions and system changes afoot in general practice.
Who should attend?
The Women’s Health Conference is designed for primary care healthcare professionals to gain a comprehensive insight into identified clinical issues that uniquely affect women and women’s health.
Delegates will be able to integrate newer concepts and knowledge into clinical practice in an appropriate manner. Delegates will identify opportunities in the provision of women’s health care in the current environment of improving diversity, equity and inclusion practices, patient expectations and government regulations.
We are excited to announce leading professionals as keynote speakers to ensure a vibrant and stimulating date of learning and networking.

A message from Dr Neema Jabbar, GP Clinical Lead
Following the success of our last Women’s Health Conference we have put together an excellent lineup of speakers to celebrate International Women’s Day. We hope it will help further our knowledge of all things women related! A huge number of you have requested more training on HRT and menopause as we continue to see an influx of women in our daily surgeries looking for help managing their symptoms.
Therefore, whether you’re looking for practical advice, increasing your confidence managing common side effects of HRT, an update on sexual health, help in managing recurrent UTIs and genitourinary syndrome of menopause or just fancy an opportunity to get away from the relentless grind of General Practice, we look forward to welcoming you on the day.
