100% of women will experience menopause. With many experiencing symptoms many years, even decades. Women experience this whilst of working age, expecting to carry on as normal despite the physical and psychological effects that menopause can cause. Some women feeling as though they cannot cope during menopause and taking steps down the ladder in their employment or changing their roles completely. With the pensionable age now increased and women expected to stay in employment longer, inevitably women will work throughout having symptoms. Working aged women are expected to pay for their HRT prescriptions with some being on more than 1 drug, why should working women be penalised? Why are prescriptions not free like contraception, if the NHS can fund free contraception for all, why not HRT also to keep women in their jobs longer. Offering HRT free will enable all who meet the medical requirements fair access, and will aid in balancing the gender inequalities that are still prevalent today.
