All consultations will now be carried out either online via video or via telephone.
Please read the latest statement from Dr Newson regarding consultations, in light of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
Menopause consultations take place in our dedicated centre in the lovely town of Stratford Upon Avon and now at our new clinic address in the North West of England. We have created a calm and beautiful atmosphere so that you can feel relaxed and cared for as soon as you arrive.
If you are a wheelchair user, or have any special requirements that will make your visit to us more comfortable, please let us know at the time of booking and we will do our utmost to accommodate your needs.
You do not need a letter of referral from your GP to have a consultation with one of our doctors, which means that you can phone us direct to book an appointment.
On arriving at our centre you will be greeted by one of our reception team and will be offered a selection of hot drinks and water. You will be asked to complete your menopause assessment questionnaire (if you have not already done this in advance).
We very much believe in the importance of providing a tranquil and welcoming environment at what can often be a worrying and stressful time. Your doctor will welcome you in a relaxed and friendly manner, and during your consultation she will take the time to make sure that she fully understands your situation and symptoms. You will have plenty of time to ask questions and it is really important that you fully understand everything. There is often a lot of information to take in during your first consultation so some women find it useful to bring a partner or friend with them. You will also be given different leaflets and information to take away with you.
During your consultation you may be offered blood tests to help with diagnosis and treatment. These are usually done straight after your appointment by one of our clinical team at the centre. If you have a blood test your results will be available within 10 days. If you haven't had your results within this time please contact the clinic.
After your consultation takes place, and any blood or other tests have been carried out, you will return to reception to pay for your treatment, where you can also book future appointments. We also have a range of books, supplements and other items to purchase if you choose.
Most women will be offered a follow-up appointment, usually with the same doctor, which can be booked at this time.
If you wish, you will be able to take any medication that is prescribed away with you on the day, or arrangements will be made for it to be sent out to you shortly afterwards. This medication will usually be enough for the first three months of your treatment.
The doctor will send you a letter in the post, outlining what was said during the consultation, usually within 7-10 days. Your GP will also be sent a copy of this letter, unless you have said you prefer for your GP not to be contacted.
The consultation charge also includes up to 2 further emails if you have any additional questions after your consultation. Outside of this, each email will be charged at £30.
All the doctors working in the clinic have been trained as GPs and have a particular interest in the menopause.
Alternatively, we offer nurse-led initial consultations and follow up appointments led by our nurse practitioners who are very experienced in all aspects of the menopause and will provide you with a full and comprehensive consultation.
