Pressures in Primary care (at your GP Practice) means that your GP, who should know you and your health the best simply and sadly does not have time to fully assess your health, your individual risks and what is most important to you. Every woman should be able to have explained the details of Menopause and good health care, with a doctor who understands this.
At DoctoriumGP, your menopause doctor in Derby, we can give patients the time they need, based on experience, with a trauma informed approach. We aim to provide information, assessment of your wellbeing in relation to any current health problems and future health concerns. Any recommendations are specific to you and you alone.

Whether it's online or face-to-face, on a one-off or a recurring basis, DoctoriumGP can provide the support you need.
Women have been taught to put up with symptoms and often tell me “I'm sure you will say it's just my age but,” when they refer to their own mid life health. The medias response to HRT in the early 2000's and current celebrity culture and social media obsession with female aging (as something to be avoided at all costs) means that the information women can easily assess is not always accurate and certainly not specific to them as individuals. That's where DoctoriumGP – your menopause doctor in Derby – plans to set things right.
The British Menopause Society states that all women should have access to accurate information on their Menopause. NICE (the guiding body for healthcare in the UK) produced a guideline in 2015 indicating that most menopausal women should be managed with guidance and information from a GP. However, some women with complex needs will require input from a clinician with a special interest or a recognised BMS Menopause specialist.
Before your face-to-face appointment with DoctoriumGP, it is important that our medical team are aware of your medical history and all medications or supplements you may be taking.
The GP who provides your appointment will not have access to your NHS medical records and, therefore, anything you can provide beforehand will make your appointment more efficient and personal to you. In addition, all patients seen in our clinics require:
Please note: Bloods tests are not usually required but can be advised and carried out through the NHS or arranged at an extra cost.
Our Doctor will advise if you need a follow up appointment and, if required, book that for you at the time of your consultation. However, if you wish to book an appointment because your health has changed or you wish to review your management plan, then you may do so through our website.
Physical examination is available if necessary and can be carried out as an additional appointment or you can integrate with your NHS GP. We cannot perform cervical screening nor pelvic ultrasound scanning at our clinics at this time.
