The Hysterectomy Association is very happy to work with journalists and public relations who are looking for information, support or comments on subjects related to hysterectomy. We can also provide materials and items for review if you need them for your work.

Please contact us by email on info@hysterectomy-association.org.uk if you need a case study for your piece then we are happy to help.

However we would draw your attention to the following; we have a database of over 10,000 women, when we receive a request for a case study we broadcast a message to everyone on the database asking them to respond directly to the journalist if they feel they can help. This means that you can receive several hundred emails in a very short space of time. In order to reduce the amount of work for you, we would like to suggest that you make your request as specific as possible to narrow down the numbers of women that might reply, you need to include a deadline as well – but do give us as much time as possible.
