Well Women Clinic

Cervical Screening

We recommend that all women from the age of 25 to 50 have a smear test every 3 years, then every 5 years to age 65. You may make an appointment for a smear with the practice nurse during normal working hours. Please do not try to book in for a smear test unless you have had a letter from the Cervical Screening Service to say you are due. You can only have your smear test on or after the date you are due. Please note, if you wish to cancel your smear test, we ask you to kindly let us know as early as possible, as Nurse appointments which are cancelled at short notice can rarely be filled by another patient.

You will receive the results of your smear in 4-6 weeks.  Visit the NHS website for more information.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a treatment used to relieve symptoms of the menopause. It replaces the female hormones that are at a lower level as you experience the menopause.

Oestrogen and progesterone are female hormones that play important roles in a woman’s body. Falling levels cause a range of physical and emotional symptoms, including hot flushes, mood swings and vaginal dryness.

The aim of HRT is to restore female hormone levels, which can bring relief to many women, please follow the link to NHS information  www.nhs.uk/conditions/hormone-replacement-therapy-hrt/risks/

New HRT Prescription Prepayment Certificate

HRT is a first line treatment in helping to manage symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. But it’s not always easily available. We’ve been calling for improved access to HRT and hope this new certificate will help to make it more accessible to those who may need it.

The new certificate, which can be purchased from the NHS website for a one-off payment of £19.30, will cover an unlimited number of HRT medicines for 12 months.

General Information

To safely prescribe HRT, we need to ensure that you are aware of the risks that may be present with HRT. Please indicate that you are happy to proceed with HRT despite these risks by answering the following questions
HRT is not always necessary, and many women find that they can reduce menopausal symptoms through regular exercise; by keeping their weight in a healthy range for their height and reducing alcohol and caffeine. Do you wish to proceed with HRT despite this?
Do you understand that rarely oral oestrogen as part of HRT can cause a clot and the symptoms/signs of a blood clot are calf pain and swelling, sharp chest pains, shortness of breath and coughing up blood and will seek urgent medical attention if these symptoms occur: (through the skin oestrogen does not have this risk)
Do you understand that you should tell a healthcare professional, that you are on HRT (if you take oral oestrogen) if you need to have an operation or have a period of prolonged immobilisation e.g. leg in plaster?
Do you understand that irregular vaginal bleeding on HRT should be reported to a clinician?
