Menopause : Woman's Hour on Radio 4
« on: January 08, 2018, 02:12:20 PM »

The week beginning 15th January 2018
Woman's Hour on Radio 4 is dedicating the whole week to menopause. There will be a phone in on Monday the 15th, results of a survey done with Sheffield University and something on the subject every day. They have appealed for women to ring in but I can't find the phone number on their site

Radio 4 Woman's Hour and BBC Radio Sheffield week-long menopause focus

BBC Radio Sheffield is to join forces with Radio 4's Woman's Hour for a week-long series looking at the impact the menopause is having on women's lives.

The investigation will be jointly presented by Jane Garvey from Woman's Hour and BBC Radio Sheffield's mid-morning presenter Paulette Edwards. Jane and Paulette will kick the series off on Monday January 15th with a phone in programme to be broadcast on both stations from 10am where listeners share their personal experiences of the menopause.

And on Tuesday January 16th, new data from a poll commissioned by Woman's Hour and BBC Radio Sheffield will be released. The poll investigates how the menopause affects British women at work, in their relationships, and the treatments they found effective.

Across the rest of the week Jane Garvey and Jenni Murray on Woman's Hour and Paulette Edwards on BBC Radio Sheffield will continue to hear from listeners and experts with advice on navigating this stage in a woman's life. This will include interviews with Dr Heather Currie, immediate past chair of the BMS.

Employers urged to 'normalise' menopause in the workplace.

A BBC survey asked 1,009 women aged 50 to 60 how their experience of the menopause had affected their work and relationships and what their symptoms and treatment were.
