Getting help and support around the menopause

If you, or someone you know, is experiencing the menopause and wants help with managing symptoms, and to understand how you/they may be affected, please watch this helpful webinar developed by Dr Kathryn Patrick (a local Somerset GP). The webinar is also in sign language for those who are hard of hearing.

There is a list of useful resources on the NHS Somerset Menopause Service web page, that talks about the pilot menopause service running in Somerset.

If you would like to speak to your primary care team here at your practice about HRT, it will speed things up if you let us know you have watched the webinar and also include your Body Mass Index (BMI) which can be calculated at BMI calculator | Check your BMI – NHS | Please fill in your details (, and Blood Pressure (BP) if possible.

Please also complete and include the following menopause symptom questionnaire – Menopause Symptoms Questionnaire – The Menopause Charity
