Menopause & Perimenopause Appointments
Menopause is inevitable but how we deal with it isn't!
Menopause symptoms can affect every part of the body causing a wide range of symptoms.
Each woman's experience will be different and while many have mild and transient symptoms, some women are very severely affected with symptoms causing a profound effect on quality of life, relationships and ability to work.
Symptoms can start a decade before the last period. This means that women in their 30's and 40's can be troubled with symptoms as well as older women.
Menopause increases the risk of some health conditions such as heart disease, osteoporosis and type 2 diabetes and the right treatment can reduce those risks. The NICE guidelines are clear that for the majority of women in the UK the benefits of treatment outweigh any risks.
You don't have to suffer in silence!
If you are having symptoms that you think may be menopause related (or even if you are not sure) please make an appointment to discuss it.
Dr Hinton, Dr Ward and Kirsty Udall (our Clinical Pharmacist) are all able to offer menopause advise and treatment.
It would be really helpful to complete a symptom profile before your appointment. This can be done using the free 'balance' app - click here for details.
Alternatively you can use the Greene Climacteric Scale - available here
Further information about the menopause can be found on the following websites:

It is important for the health of your child and others that you ensure vaccinations are up to date. A course of childhood immunisations help protect not only your child, but future generations and the wider community.
All childhood vaccinations should be booked with the practice nurse. You should receive a reminder about these vaccines from the central childhood immunisations centre. If you think a vaccine may be due but you have not received notification, please contact the surgery.
Knightwick Surgery will endeavour to chase-up patients who are overdue for vaccines.
PLEASE NOTE: We must gain the consent of the child’s legal parent or guardian in order to vaccinate them. If you are asking another carer (e.g. a grandparent) to bring your child to be vaccinated, please contact the surgery beforehand to let us know and if possible provide written consent to be bought to the appointment. If we do not have parental/guardian consent, we will be unable to vaccinate your child.
