Welcome to the Female Athlete Health Initiative page. Here you'll find helpful resources regarding all things related to female athlete health as part of a new LTA project to help support, educate and optimise performance for our female player group.
You can find the female athlete health podcast series on this page, which aims to shine a light on issues that are either specific to, or closely linked with, being a female athlete/player. Various topics are discussed with an expert in their field, hosted by Dr Guy Evans (LTA Chief Medical Officer).
If you find that the topics covered are pertinent to you or strike a chord with an issue that you're suffering with, please be aware of the following ways you can access support:
- For LTA supported players you can access an LTA Sports Physician (or SSSM team member) to discuss the issue further. The LTA Sports Physicians have access to expert gynaecologists should onward referral be required.
- For non-LTA supported players you can access your GP to discuss gynaecology/medical issues. They'll be able to assess and if necessary refer you on to a gynaecologist via the NHS or privately depending on your preference. We hope you enjoy the podcast series.
