One of my patients talks opening about her menopause

Published: 17th June 2017

Many of my patients return to my clinic telling me that taking HRT has really changed their lives and I am often told that they missed they had taken it sooner. Too many women are suffering in silence or even go and try to seek help only to be given wrong information about the potential risks of HRT. This lady gives a common description how the menopause affected her and how HRT has given her life back. I am very grateful to her for agreeing for me to video her.

Newson Health Menopause and Wellbeing Centre was founded by leading menopause specialist and GP, Dr Louise Newson, and officially opened in September 2018 by Liz Earle MBE. Created to help women receive the most appropriate, individualised treatment for their perimenopause and menopause, it has quickly become a centre of excellence, providing care to women of all ages, as well as running educational events for primary care clinicians.

Dr Newson is also the founder of the Menopause Doctor website, a free resource since 2017, providing the latest unbiased, evidence based information about the menopause and perimenopause for women as well as the most recent national and international menopause articles and guidelines for healthcare professionals. The website has been adopted by the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) as an official educational library aimed at patients and healthcare professionals wishing to learn more about the menopause.

Newson Health Research and Education is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Dr Newson, from which all profits gained from the organisation's activities, such as event sponsorship, delegate fees and speaker's fees, are invested back into the business.
