Webinar: Empowering women’s pelvic health with co-designed technology

February 7, 2024

Female leads from South West London and South Yorkshire Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) share their insights and experiences from co-designing and implementing digital self-management support tool to empower women’s pelvic floor health at scale across their ICSs.


Women’s pelvic floor health is a vital aspect of overall well-being affecting quality of life at every age, but especially during the perinatal period and then again at the time of perimenopause and menopause. In the United Kingdom, 1 in 3 women will experience a pelvic floor disorder in their lifetime, a condition commonly normalised and misunderstood. Fortunately, advancements in digital self-management technology have paved the way for more accessible and effective solutions, revolutionising pelvic floor health for women in the UK. South West London ICS co-produced and launched a support pathway for women to develop the skills and confidence to self-manage. The pelvic floor health support which includes general pelvic floor health, pelvic health in pregnancy, and pelvic health after birth is now available at every GP practice, the women’s health physiotherapy department and at urogynaecology clinics across the ICS. South Yorkshire ICSs are in the process of locally configuring and adopting the support across their pathway.

In this webinar, speakers from SW London and South Yorkshire ICSs discuss how getUBetter, a platform delivering personalised, supported self-management for women’s pelvic floor health, is empowering women’s pelvic health at scale.
