This is for an initial assessment and can address any of the problems relating to being female from birth. This might include contraception; heavy, irregular or absent periods; premenstrual syndrome; menopause; bladder and vaginal concerns; osteoporosis and others. You will be asked to fill in a Women’s Health Questionnaire to provide us with some background and will have plenty of time to talk. We aim for you to come to understand the cause of your problem. We will discuss the options available with their various pros and cons and arrive at an agreed plan. We will provide a private prescription if appropriate. A summary report will be sent to you within the following two weeks. This covers the findings and advice of the doctor; it is intended for your information. It is recommended that this is given to your NHS GP for their record but is not an instruction to the NHS.
Women’s Health – 30 minutes
After an initial appointment a follow-up lasting 30 minutes is usually suggested at about three months. This will review progress and allows for modification of treatment. Once stabilised an annual review is recommended. You can book longer appointments or come more often should you wish. This is your health and you are in charge. A summary report will be sent to you within the following two weeks. This covers the findings and advice of the doctor; it is intended for your information.
