WEBINAR - Menopause & difficult HRT decisions

A 30-min webinar in advance of International Women’s Day (8 March) in partnership with Teladoc Health and Working To Wellbeing.

WEBINAR - Menopause & difficult HRT decisions

About this event

There was a huge 35% increase in prescribing of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in 2021, according to a report from the NHS Business Services Authority.*

Whether or not this can be attributed to Davina McCall’s influence, with her Channel 4 documentary** in May 2021, it seems that midlife taboos are being lifted, and long-held evidence of links between HRT and breast cancer being questioned.

However, these question marks have yet to make their way into NHS guidelines. In the meantime, many women – either with a family history of breast cancer or other potential complications such as being on long-term medication – arguably still have some tough choices to make.

We’ve brought together a panel of experts to discuss this topic and to provide insights for both the employer – in terms of appropriate support – and the employee, in terms of information and education.
