There has been no assessment of the adequacy of the capacity of National Health Service endometriosis specialist centres.

NHS England leads on commissioning specialised services and has developed a service specification for severe endometriosis, but it does not record the number of specialist centres currently available. NHS England expects all NHS centres treating women with severe endometriosis to provide care that meets the standards laid out in the specification.
