Can I self-refer to a private menopause clinic?

Menopause is a natural phase in a woman’s life that brings about significant hormonal changes and various symptoms. While some women may find adequate support and treatment options through their GPs and doctor’s surgeries, others may prefer to seek specialized care at a private menopause clinic. Wait lists, generalised care plans, and minimal support have meant that more and more menopausal women seek treatments for their symptoms outside of national healthcare and go down the route of private clinics.
