Initial consultation £265
The initial consultation lasts for up to 40 minutes and is a bespoke personalised consultation which considers each individual woman’s needs.
You can expect to have a full medical history taken including a discussion of your symptoms, any other medical conditions you might have, any family history of significant illness, and your lifestyle. If you are on any regular medications, please bring a list, or a copy of your repeat prescription, with you to the appointment.
The time of menopause is a good opportunity to look to optimise your health for the future. You will have your height, weight and blood pressure measured. It is also possible to have blood tests to check for diabetes and cholesterol levels which will enable the calculation of a cardiovascular risk score. Your bone health will be assessed and an onward private referral for a DEXA (bone density) scan can be made to a local private hospital, if required. You will be given appropriate lifestyle advice to improve your health.
A full range of treatment options will be discussed with you including Hormone Replacement Therapy and non-hormonal treatment options. If treatment is appropriate, you will be given a private prescription which you can take to a chemist in order to obtain your medication. You will be given enough medication to last until your follow up consultation.
