Shownotes

On today’s episode Dr. Lindsey Thomas, British Menopause Society Specialist and GP is helping us understand “Where is my nearest menopause clinic?”.

Each week I get emails from women who say they have had absolutely no help in managing their menopausal symptoms after their cancer diagnosis. Many echo what I have been experiencing myself - and that is total confusion of what’s what?

If you’re in the UK and you are wondering who can help you manage your menopausal symptoms after your cancer diagnosis, then this episode is for you.

  • What can your GP do for you? 
  • Do you have access to a menopause specialist on the NHS?
  • If so, who can refer you?
  • How long is the waiting list and what can I do in the meantime?
  • How can I choose a private menopause specialist?



Dr. Thomas can be found at the NHS specialist menopause clinic in Leeds and she is also a menopause specialist at Myla Health.

I hope this episode is helpful.

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
