The Nelson Trust's women's centres in the town, and also in Gloucester and Bridgwater, offer help for women over issues as diverse as emotional wellbeing and domestic abuse.
Mr Buckland's visit, on the International Day of Women's Health, coincided with the Government's launch of a 12-week call for evidence to better understand women’s experiences of the health and care system. 
Their experiences – both positive and negative – will form the basis of a new Women’s Health Strategy which aims to set an ambitious and positive new agenda to improve health and wellbeing and ensure health services are meeting the needs of women. 
The call for evidence has been designed to be user-friendly, quick to fill out and easily accessible from people’s mobile phones.
As well as women, the call for evidence is aimed at people who live with and care for women, organisations with experience of providing services for women and those with expertise in women’s health are also encouraged to share their views.
The Government says it aims to places women's voices at the centre of their health and care, maximise their health and improve the quality and accessibility of information.
