What is a Menopause Champion and how can they benefit your organisation? You might have heard the term “Menopause Champion” in recent months. It is a relatively new concept and is best described as a peer-to-peer support role in an organisation. The role, typically voluntary, is to act as a ‘listening ear’, a sign-poster and to help embed menopause into the workplace culture. Menopause has been a taboo topic for far too long, much like mental health was. However, nowadays organisations embrace mental health awareness, education, training, support and policy, and many have successfully appoint ..read more

10 Point Plan for a Menopause Friendly Workplace

I set up The Menopause Hub – Ireland’s first-ever clinic solely devoted to helping women through the menopause and perimenopause – after finding out for myself the appalling lack of help available to women in their 40s and 50s whose bodies were beginning to change.  Later, I discovered that many highly qualified women in Ireland with significant talent and experience were either quitting – or on the brink of walking out on – successful careers simply because they were finding their menopause symptoms overwhelming and were not being supported by their employer. 4 in 10 women considered giv ..read more

  We are experiencing HRT shortages yet again. There has been intermittent supply issues over the past three years, since we first opened the doors of The Menopause Hub. However, the shortages that began last November 2021 are still continuing and it has been at crisis level for many women. First Evorel Conti went short, resulting in a knock-on increased demand for the alternative oestrogen elements of the HRT alternatives, such as Estradot, Evorel, Oestrogel and Divigel. This has led to a crisis for patients and an increased workload for doctor and pharmacists. Our doctors have been wri ..read more

Menopause for far too long has been a taboo and stigmatised topic both in society and in the workplace. For a condition that affects 50% of the population and may impact the other 50%, menopause has been almost secret and has been spoken about in hushed tones This is finally changing. Women no longer have to suffer in silence. We are experiencing a menopause revolution! Menopause is an important workplace issue because it affects so many employees. The average age of perimenopause is 45 and menopause is 51. menopause is clearly not an older woman’s condition! In Ireland there are 350,000 meno ..read more
