HRT prescription cost cut welcomed in England

1 November 2021

A cut to the cost of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) prescriptions has been welcomed by campaigners in England.

In both Scotland and Wales, prescriptions are free.

Comment from Dr Currie:
This is fantastic news for women in England who choose to take HRT. Menopausal symptoms affect many women in a range of ways, with huge variation in severity, duration and impact. HRT continues to be the most effective treatment for menopausal symptoms and for the majority of women under the age of 60 with troublesome symptoms, the benefits outweigh the risks. This development is welcomed by women and all of us providing menopause care, support and education.
