Dr Catherine Coward has practised as a GP for over 25 years honing an interest in women’s health and menopause. Dr Catherine will journey with you through your experience of the menopause, explaining your treatment options, including lifestyle and HRT, empowering you to live life to the full and overcome this challenging time of your life.
The first step is an initial consultation. Time is allowed for you to get to know your Doctor and discuss the effects menopause is having on you. During your consultation Dr Catherine will review your history and the key symptoms that impact you. You will then create an action plan together to manage your symptoms going forwards alongside options for tests, lifestyle change, medication and referrals to other specialists such as Psychologist or Nutritionist. A follow up appointment will be booked to review any test results and treatments will be evaluated once they have had time to take effect. We advise reviews with Dr Catherine to ensure your goals are being met safely and sustainably.
