Guidelines and Pathways

  • NICE Menopause: diagnosis and management. (NG23, November 2015, updated 2019). This guideline covers the diagnosis and management of menopause, including in women who have premature ovarian insufficiency. The guideline aims to improve the consistency of support and information provided to women in menopause. The guideline was amended in December 2019, following the MHRA safety alert on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and the risk of breast cancer, to include the MHRA’s advice on risks and benefits.
  • The NICE NG23 guideline includes a pathway for improving diagnosis and management of menopause.
  • The British Menopause Society website hosts a series of consensus statements which address key disorders and controversial topics in post-reproductive health. These statements are developed from evidence review and informal consensus to support healthcare professionals to provide quality post-reproductive healthcare including:
    • Hormone Replacement Therapy
    • Non-hormonal based treatments for menopausal symptoms
    • Premature ovarian insufficiency
    • Bioidentical HRT
    • Urogenital atrophy
