World Menopause Day
A recent survey conducted by the British Menopause Society (BMS), released today to mark World Menopause Day reveals the need for greater support for women experiencing the menopause across the UK.

Recognising the concerns of women and their need for support, advice and reassurance, the BMS has published its vision for menopause healthcare in the UK (http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/2053369117717207). The vision sets out the fundamental principles that should underpin menopause care provision for all to ensure that users can access high quality menopause care as standard.
The BMS has also published the first medical handbook to be made available post the NICE guidance – Management of the Menopause 6th edition – aimed at healthcare professionals. The handbook can be purchased on the BMS website: www.thebms.org.uk/publications/handbook. A lay version of the book, aimed at women and their partners, will be published in September 2018.
