Hormone Health – founded by Nick Panay in 2015 – started as a private women’s health clinic located in London’s Harley Street. Mr Panay’s aim was to gather a group of like-minded specialists to provide a service that would give women personal time and choices of treatment to suit their needs and beliefs. We now have a centre in the Thames Valley area, with plans to open further centres in Oxford and Glasgow in January 2018
All investigations and treatments are supported by extensive clinical research and the relevant expert academic societies.

You can contact us to make an appointment or your GP or specialist can write to refer you. For overseas patients a referral letter may not always be required.
We ask that you bring any copies of investigations that you have had performed elsewhere as this may prevent repeating some investigations. A record of your symptoms can also be very helpful at the first consultation. If possible, please download and complete our symptom diary (PDF, 149KB).
These targeted tests are the basis for most diagnoses – measuring the hormones in your blood, along with other chemical factors, allows us to give you the best guidance possible.
The most common test includes the measurement of Estradiol, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Testosterone, Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), Progesterone and Thyroid Function.
In addition, we offer screening tests for short and long term wellbeing including “Fit for Fifty” and “Fit for Life.”
An ultrasound scan is a painless test that uses sound waves to create images of organs and structures inside your body. It is a very commonly used test that uses sound waves rather than radiation and it is thought to be very safe.
More information on ultrasound scanning can be found on the NHS website.
DEXA scan (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) or bone density scan
You may need to have a DEXA scan if you’re:
- over 50 years of age with a risk of developing osteoporosis
- under 50 with other risk factors – such as early menopause, smoking, a previous fracture, family history of osteoporosis
