If you want to discuss the menopause and HRT options, we ask kindly that complete two requests for us first:

  1. read/watch the following information
  2. Complete the menopause questionnaire. You can do this by asking reception to send you a link.

After you have completed the above steps, we will send you a link to book a telephone appointment with Dr Beck or Dr Wood.

We ask all patients considering HRT to read the following information and watch the videos from the British Menopause Society.
