A key objective is for women to forge a closer relationship with their general practitioners, nurses and other health professionals.
Menopause: Giving you confidence for understanding and action
We have prepared a series of factsheets on menopause and related issues, following the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) menopause guidelines from November 2015. These factsheets have been reviewed by the medical advisory council of the British Menopause Society.

Confidential advice by telephone or email
The Women’s Health Concern telephone and email advisory service is currently suspended. The nurses who help us to provide the service have been called upon to support their colleagues as part of the NHS response to COVID-19.
We will regularly monitor and assess the situation and the advisory service will be reinstated as soon as possible.

Women’s Health Concern is greatly indebted to the late Miss Elizabeth Stalley whose generous bequest made possible the complete re-design and revision of this charity website in December 2007.Since then several benefactors, some preferring to be anonymous, have made donations. These are enabling us to continue to enhance the website and to provide funding towards our key outreach objectives.The trustees of the British Menopause Society and Women’s Health Concern thank you all, especially those who have supported us having suffered loss of close family.
Our charity receives no statutory funding, so we continue to depend on the generosity of all those who value our services.
Women’s Health Concern is a national charity but we like to keep in close touch with communities in the Marlow area where our office is situated. Local information will periodically be published in this box.
