Helping women with the cost of HRT
Today the government announced a cut to the cost of Hormone Replacement Therapy, saving women who suffer from negative symptoms of menopause hundreds of pounds and improving their lives.
- Around a quarter of women experience severe menopause symptoms, which can seriously impact their quality of life, so it is right that we take steps to mitigate the impact of this difficult period.
- That is why the government will introduce prescription pre-payment certificates for Hormone Replacement Therapy, which will reduce the cost of HRT to less than £20 a year and save hundreds of pounds each year for the 400,000 women affected.
- Making HRT more affordable will not only help women to save money but will improve the lives of women who suffer from negative symptoms of the menopause each year.
