Free sanitary products to be offered to patients in NHS Wales

Following this week's announcement from Vaughan Gething, Minister for Health and Social Services, that free sanitary products will be available in Welsh hospitals, Helen Whyley, Director, RCN Wales said:

“I’m delighted that Welsh Government have realised the importance of providing free sanitary products and that these will soon be available to all women in Welsh hospitals.

Going into hospital can be distressing and since it’s not always planned, it can be embarrassing for women who find themselves unprepared. In addition, having sanitary products available is vital for young girls experiencing period poverty.”
