Menopause Group Discussion

What does Frome Medical Practice offer?

Frome Medical Practice hosts clinician led, face-to-face patient group discussion on menopause and the use of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), on a regular basis. 

Over recent months there has been a much greater awareness of the issues many women face during the menopause. As a result, we have noticed an increase in the numbers of women seeking advice about this phase of their life.

We recognise that often conversations about the menopause, and in particular around taking HRT, take longer than the time available in a single nurse or GP appointment, as there is a lot of information to convey in discussing the benefits and risks of hormone replacement and in understanding the other interventions that can be helpful.

Therefore, we have set up regular group consultations where women can discuss this in more detail and share experiences with each other.

Please note that these sessions are aimed at people who are thinking about starting HRT for the first time.

When do the sessions take place?

The dates of the sessions will vary each month.

Sessions will take place in the evening from 6pm to 8pm and will be held face to face, at the practice.

What will the sessions cover?

  • How experiences of symptoms vary between people
  • How to manage these symptoms
  • Healthy Lifestyle Education
  • HRT and other treatment options
  • Risks and benefits of HRT

How can I take part in the sessions?

The sessions are aimed at people considering taking HRT for the first time.
