Dr Duffy feels strongly that the consultation forms a large part of a patient’s therapeutic journey, therefore she doesn’t conduct consultations by email.
Email communication is reserved for clarification of appointments reinforcement/clarification of prescribing advice.
Telephone discussions are for existing patients only.
Please note that, unfortunately, medical insurance does not normally cover treatment for menopause care.
For most women the diagnosis of menopause is a clinical one based on age, symptoms and a change in menstrual pattern. In women aged > 45 years, the diagnosis is a clinical one made by the doctor. However young women aged < 40 require blood tests to be taken to establish a diagnosis of Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI). In addition, blood tests may be suggested to exclude other causes for symptoms such as anaemia or an underactive thyroid gland. This will be discussed in full at the consultation. Some women also request bloods as part of an overall health check and this can be arranged. Blood tests will not be conducted in isolation for women who are not already under the care of Health in Menopause.
The cost of bloods is in addition to the consultation fee and must be paid on the day that the request for the blood test is made. Please ensure that your card details are stored on our system to avoid delay in processing your request.
An appointment booked for a blood test outside of a full consultation will incur a fee of £30.
