Menopause consultations take place in our dedicated centre in the lovely town of Stratford Upon Avon, where we have created a calm and beautiful atmosphere so that you can feel relaxed and cared for as soon as you arrive. You do not need a letter of referral from you 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.
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.
All the doctors working in the clinic have been trained as GPs and have a particular interest in the menopause.
