For too long, the menopause has been a taboo subject. This has resulted in women suffering serious symptoms in silence. This is now changing, with awareness being raised all the time. One mainstream treatment is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), which is effective at relieving most symptoms.
Because the prescription needs to be repeated this can make HRT too expensive for many. So, Richard warmly welcomes the Government’s new scheme to cut prescription costs to under £20 a year, helping to save hundreds of pounds in prescription charges.
To get access to this, please go to www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/hrt-ppc. You may also be able to get one in person at some pharmacies. It could make a huge difference to your life.

"It’s something I’ve spoken about in Parliament - https://youtu.be/SZrjufnPNGE - and I am so glad the Government is taking practical steps which will make a real difference to women going through the menopause."
