Sharon Hodgson responds to hormone replacement therapy and contraceptive shortages

Sharon Hodgson MP, Labour’s Shadow Public Health Minister, responding to hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and contraceptive shortages, said:

“It is unacceptable that patients have not been able to access HRT and contraceptives for so long. This has had unbearable consequences on women, which must be put to an end.

“The Government must be transparent about why these shortages were allowed to happen and continue for so long, and what provisions will be put in place for patients who need access to HRT and contraceptives.”
