NICE Menopause clinical guideline is here…

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.
