Who can be seen at this clinic
I can see women via video link if they are over the age of 18 and residing in England.
If you have had a hormone dependent cancer (including breast cancer, endometrial cancer and certain types of ovarian and bladder cancer) I’m afraid I’m unable to prescribe HRT for you unless I have written agreement from your oncologist. However we can discuss other non-hormonal prescribed treatment options that can help with your symptoms. We can also discuss lifestyle changes and the use of CBT as we have good evidence that these options can help.
Long-term local (vaginal) oestrogen is usually still a safe option (unless you are on an aromatase-inhibitor).
The initial consultation
I offer a 45 minute (minimum) consultation to discuss your experience of the menopause, medical history and how your symptoms can be improved. I can advise on starting HRT or trying different HRT preparations if you are not getting on well with your current regime. We can also discuss your general health and lifestyle and look at ways of improving your health and wellbeing going forward.
I will send you a summary of your consultation with other information leaflets as indicated. With your approval I will then post a copy of the summary to your GP for your NHS records.
After the consultation
Everyone responds differently to HRT and there may need to be several adjustments in type and dosage over the first year or so. You can email me with any questions after your appointment or once you have started HRT (no extra charge for emails over the first 3 months).
Follow up consultation
There are many different symptoms caused by fluctuating and falling oestrogen levels, some of which are often not recognised as being a perimenopausal or menopausal issue. This symptom checker (click to download or open) may be useful to print off and fill in if you are having a GP consultation. It includes the main symptoms but there are other less common ones too.
If attending my clinic, we will go through these symptoms during the consultation – filling it in beforehand is optional.

How to book an appointment once more are released
Appointments can be made easily via a secure online medical system called Semble (previously known as Heydoc). Once you have made an appointment you will be sent a confirmation email with a link to click on at the agreed time to activate the video. If you do not receive this email within a few minutes of booking, please do check in your junk mail and please do email the clinic if you can’t find it. If you would prefer a telephone consultation please email the clinic AFTER booking.
In the unlikely event of the video technology not working at the time of your consultation, I will telephone you so please keep your mobile with you. We can then talk on the phone or via FaceTime or Zoom, whichever you prefer.
Payment will be requested and taken from your account via the payment processor STRIPE at the time of booking. If you prefer to pay by a different method you will need to email the clinic BEFORE booking.
Cancellations with at least 48 hours notice will be fully refunded within 5 to 10 working days. If under 48 hours notice, the refund will be 50% of the fee.
Please fill in the medical questionnaire before your first appointment. The link for this is in your booking confirmation email. There is no need to fill this in if you have booked a follow up consultation. Please have photo ID available at your first video appointment.
Online clinics currently run mostly on Monday afternoons but occasionally on other days instead.
UPDATE NOVEMBER 2023 I’m fully booked for new patient consultations at present. I’m sorry but my waiting list is currently closed to new patients.
