Rated 4.8/5 stars*

If you feel like your GP isn't an expert in the menopause field or you just get snubbed then please consider this empathetic service. I'm so glad I did.

It's useful to see a specialist in such quick turn around. I could trust that the advice was from someone who is knowledgeable about menopause.

Supporting you at every stage


Perimenopause

This is when you're experiencing symptoms as well as irregular periods.

Menopause

This is when you're experiencing symptoms but it's been 12 months since your last period.

Postmenopause

Many of your symptoms will have eased, but it’s important to protect your brain, bone and heart health.

Your appointment

What's included

  • An in-depth review of your symptoms with answers to any questions you have
  • Advice that's tailored to your needs. For example, if you’re looking for a perimenopause diagnosis, need help in considering if HRT is right for you, or if you’re struggling with your existing HRT or pill
  • HRT prescription planning, including body identical HRT options
  • A comprehensive post-appointment menopause plan, including a treatment/prescription recommendation letter for your GP
  • Safe & secure video consultation (using the same platform as the NHS)
  • Detailed patient notes that you can easily access at anytime

What's not included

  • Private prescriptions and other hidden costs

Our unique prescription recommendation service:

Private prescriptions can be expensive, with the cost of medicines, prescription fees and pharmacy dispensing fees costing up to £450/year.

As most HRT options (including body-identical hormones) are available on the NHS, we have worked with patients and GPs to develop a unique and cost-effective system that allows prescription recommendation letters to be passed onto your GP.

What sets us apart

Our team of GPs are qualified British Menopause Society Members who are highly experienced in the management of Menopausal Health. Every clinician is registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) – the organisation responsible for ensuring patient safety and setting standards of GP care in the UK.

Menopause care for every woman

We've built an easy-to-use platform that gives you menopause care at the touch of a button. An appointment with one of our menopause specialist GPs is like seeing your traditional GP, but from the comfort of your own home and at a time that's convenient for you.

Appointments at an affordable price

Unlike other menopause clinics in the UK, we don't have a physical surgery and all of the extra costs with running this type of clinic. This allows us to keep prices below £150 for our consultation appointments.

We're here to help

Frequently asked questions on how our services work

We recommend that you give yourself 15 minutes to log into your account and click the button to start your video consultation. If you’re using your mobile phone and/or tablet outside of your home, try to go somewhere quiet where you feel comfortable discussing your health. Remember, this appointment is about giving you the advice and support you require, so we don’t want you disturbed.

Not sure where to start when it comes to discussing menopause with your doctor? Don’t worry, we’ve spoken to Dr Shilpa McQuillan who shares her practical advice for making the most of your appointment:

There’s no need to feel embarrassed

Try to remember that menopause is really common and your doctor will have seen it and heard it before. Be honest, tell your story, and most importantly explain how it’s affecting you. This will help your doctor tailor information and choices to suit you.

See your conversations as a journey together

Your doctor really wants to help, but may feel limited by the amount of information to discuss during your appointment. It’s important you don’t feel rushed, so think of your menopause as a journey and be prepared to arrange more than one appointment so that you feel all of your questions and concerns are addressed.

Prepare and research

Making a list of questions or points you want to discuss will ensure your GP understands your agenda from the start and will cover the things most important to you.

In addition, consider having some vital information ready to help your GP tailor advice that is safe and suitable for you.

This may include:

  • A symptom diary with timeline notes for changes to your mood, sleep patterns and/or periods.
  • Record of any relevant medical problems you or your close family members may have, such as history of breast or ovarian cancer, heart disease, or clots in the legs or lungs, as well as any previous operations you may have had on your womb, ovaries or cervix.

We take privacy and security very seriously and take all reasonable and appropriate measures to protect any personal data we may collect while operating our service. Our servers are located in the UK, and all of the information transmitted through our platform is encrypted and protected with SSL technology.

We also promise to uphold the Caldicott principles which ensure your information is protected and only used when it is appropriate to do so, as set out in our Privacy Policy.

To ensure safe prescribing of HRT, you are required to have an up to date blood pressure test - something that we are currently unable to facilitate online. Therefore, unlike other menopause clinics, we've developed a system that allows us to provide prescription recommendations to your GP via a recommendation letter which will be provided to you after your appointment. If you choose to pass this letter on to your GP, they will need to confirm if our recommendation is appropriate with consideration to the complete medical records they hold for you.

Most women find that prescription recommendations are a cost effective option as private prescriptions can cost up to £450/year (including cost of medicine, prescribing fees and pharmacy dispensing fees).

Yes, after your initial consultation you can book a follow-up 35 minute appointment for £135.

No, we believe in fair and transparent pricing and there are no hidden costs at all. Our 35 minute consultations cost £135 and include:

  • An in-depth review of your symptoms with tailored advice
  • HRT prescription planning (including body identical options)
  • A comprehensive post-appointment menopause plan, including a treatment/prescription recommendation letter for your GP
  • Detailed patient notes that you can easily access at anytime

We understand that circumstances can sometimes change and you may need to cancel your appointment. If you’re unable to make your appointment, we ask that you inform us as soon as you can, with at least 24 hours’ notice. If you cancel your appointment 24 hours before the date and time of your consultation, you will be entitled to a full refund. For more information, please see our Terms and Conditions.

We recommend that you select the option to begin your appointment 15 minutes ahead of your appointment start time. This time will allow the system to conduct a video call set-up to check that you have everything you need in place, such as good internet connectivity, speaker, microphone and video.

We've made the appointment process as easy and intuitive as possible via our online platform, but if you require any additional support you can speak to a member of our support team. Call us on 0333 305 5903 and select option 3, or email us at clinic@healthandher.com.

Ahead of your appointment, we also recommend reading our Video Consultation Guide.

We try to ensure that you are pleased with the experience of our service at all times and take complaints, concerns, and issues very seriously. If you would like to log a complaint, we pledge that it will be properly investigated in an unbiased, non-judgmental, transparent, timely and appropriate manner.

When we look into a complaint, we aim to:

  • Make it possible for the complainant to discuss the problem with those concerned
  • Find out what went wrong
  • Issue an apology where appropriate
  • Identify what we can do to ensure the problem does not arise again
