On Tuesday 12th March 2024 our phone lines/surgery will be closed from 12.30-5.30pm for staff training. There will be no appointments available during this time. If you feel you urgently need to see a GP during this time, please call 111. Thank you for your understanding.
Menopause Support has launched a new guidance booklet “Understanding Menopause” to support women to better understand and navigate Menopause.
The new guidance booklet, reviewed by expert clinicians, includes a much-needed symptom checker to support women to understand the breadth of potential menopause symptoms and when to reach out for support.
The booklet is part of the organisation’s wider #MakeMenopauseMatter campaign, a grassroots community movement supported by over 190,000 individuals via its online petition to the Health Secretary, The Rt Hon Steve Barclay MP.
Diane Danzebrink, the founder of Menopause Support, is determined that every woman should have the right information and support from their GP.
Diane said “Menopause Support is proud to publish this much needed guidance booklet today. Women experiencing perimenopause and menopause should not have to suffer in silence. We urge women across the UK to read the guidance and speak to your GP armed with the completed symptom checker. There are lots of treatment and support options available to you, please seek the support you deserve. We know that some simple steps such as a national public health campaign and a GP health check at 40 would help to support women at this crucial time. We call on the Government to put them in place as a matter of urgency”.
