Okay, HRT got confusing for a bit. But as much as the newspapers like a scare story, it’s actually pretty clear now. As someone who employs or provides care for women affected by menopause, wouldn’t you like to get the facts about menopause and HRT? Here’s how:

Evidently Cochrane

We have been joined in this #changethechange campaign by an organisation that leads the way in providing trusted, clear, accessible health information. Cochrane UK have designated this week Menopause Week on Evidently Cochrane. A series of six guest blogs on the menopause, from women brave enough to share their experiences, is backed up with the latest evidence on treatment choices. Take a look at their preview here, and check back for more blogs being posted every day this week.

BMSThe British Menopause Society

The British Menopause Society is a registered charity and a multi-disciplinary society. The society provides education, information and guidance to healthcare professionals specialising in all aspects of post reproductive health.

The BMS Medical Advisory Council has produced an authoritative and clear position statement on HRT which is essential reading.  Women’s Health Concern, the BMS’s patient arm, produces a variety of fact sheets and leaflets.

    Hannah, you need to come to the next meeting of the BMS and bring lots of young GPs with you. When I retired my patients were taken off HRT and I weep for them and for all women denied treatment by their doctors. There is an epidemic of osteoporosis, heart disease, depression etc etc about to happen because GPs lost their nerve with HRT.
