In this episode, we talk to Jennifer MacLellan and Sultana Bi about the paper they have recently published here in the BJGP.

Title of paper: Primary care practitioners’ experiences of peri/menopause help-seeking among ethnic minority women

Available at:

Ethnic minority women may have different experiences of the peri/menopause from their white peers. Ethnic minority women may face language, inhibition and health literacy barriers to primary care. There is a need for increased awareness and trustworthy information resources to help ethnic minority women prepare for the menopause and advocate for their health. Resources, training and quality interpreter support are needed to help clinicians recognise ethnic minority women’s experiences and offer support, improving quality of life and potentially reducing future disease risk.
