We support you across every step of your journey

​The menopause is a very natural part of ageing that usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, as a person’s oestrogen levels decline. In the UK, the average age for a person to reach the menopause is 51.​

​Going through the menopause or even perimenopause (before the menopause or when periods stop) can have a significant impact on employee wellbeing. Changes in hormones can lead to mood swings, sharp changes in body temperature and sleep disruption for an average of 4 years. ​

​96% of people going through menopause felt unprepared while 29% felt overwhelmed and confused. No matter who you are or how unique or different your journey is, we commit to offer complete care from the moment you first interact with us, until you are comfortable and confident enough to no longer need our support.

Our menopause programme can be implemented as a standalone benefits package, or as part of your overall reproductive healthcare benefits with Fertifa.​

​We offer a doctor-led menopause programme, managed and led our in-house clinical team. Whether it’s a consultation with one of our nurses or doctors, an HRT prescription, a question about hot flushes or wellness support with our nutritional experts or therapists, we’re here to support you through the menopause every step of the way.​

​We understand how busy you are so we’ve developed tech-enabled solutions to make booking online appointments, video consultations, at-home tests and HRT delivery easier than ever before.​

​Our unlimited 1-2-1 clinical advice and wellbeing support service, made up of care advisors, are available 5 days a week for a call or appointment. And you’ll have access to educational resources written by our clinical team alongside monthly webinars and Q&As led by experts in the menopause world.

Benefit programmes like what we offer for the menopause are seen to have a big impact on workplaces and individuals alike. Support networks, appropriate menopause policies and employer-funded care and support can encourage a better workplace culture. ​

​With more than 80% of menopausal women presently working, they are the fastest growing demographic in the workplace. Supporting this demographic through the menopause shows a true commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
