The NICE Guideline on the diagnosis and management of the menopause will play an important role in raising awareness of all menopausal symptoms and in encouraging women to consider lifestyle changes to improve later health.
The Guideline should also clarify uncertainty – both for women and for healthcare professionals – around both prescribed and non-prescribed treatment options.

Our patient arm
Women’s Health Concern (WHC) was founded in 1979 and became the patient arm of the BMS in 2012. It provides an independent service to advise, reassure and educate women of all ages about their health, wellbeing and lifestyle concerns.
Information for non-professionals can also be found at Menopause Matters.
The British Menopause Society is a specialist society affiliated to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare. Working together we have developed theoretical and practical training modules aimed at those healthcare professionals who regularly work in the field of women’s health.
