Your first menopause consultation will last thirty minutes. I will ask you to complete a symptom chart and I will want to know all about the challenges the menopause is posing for you. Every woman’s menopause is individual to them and I will help work out what will be the best way forward for you. Some women remain anxious about the safety aspects of hormone replacement therapy, but many more are recognising the value of hormones provided at the right time and using medications which are licensed, regulated and available also on the NHS. A physical exam is not always required but can be helpful in confirming a diagnosis and any blood tests which are required can be done at your consultation.
I will always provide a report for your own information and to take to your own GP as you wish. Most prescriptions are for a three month period and I would aim to review you with fifteen minute appointments until we find the perfect management strategy and plan for you.
An initial consultation will cost £143, payable at the time of the consultation.
Follow up consultation will be £87. I will aim to try to manage your menopause symptoms as well as possible and return you back to your own GP when stable, or alternatively if you wish continue to see you on an annual basis and provide private prescriptions when required.
Blood tests are chargeable extras.
