Menopause treatments tailored to you

The menopause and perimenopause can be daunting, and everyone’s experience is as unique as they are. That’s why Oxona’s team of specialist GPs believes all treatments should be tailored to your symptoms, your body and your choices.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which replaces the female hormones that dip as you go into menopause, isn’t right for everyone. And even when it is, it’s not one-size-fits-all.

We’re here to help you navigate this period of change with care and expertise. Our private clinics provide a relaxed, comforting environment, where we’ll help you understand what’s happening and what therapies available to you. No rushing or pressures, just space to be heard and find answers.

HRT tablets, gels & alternative treatments

Menopause and perimenopause symptoms aren’t something you just have to put up with, and there’s a wide range of options available. We can run quick tests to determine the best treatments for your body – whether it’s HRT, lifestyle tweaks or other methods – giving you everything you need to make an informed decision. And if you choose HRT, we’ll explore all the administration methods (eg tablets, gels, pessaries, implants, creams and sprays) and we can even prescribe testosterone, which is not generally available on the NHS for menopause patients.

We accept NHS GP referrals, or you can even refer yourself. And because we have greater flexibility with appointments, we can offer shorter wait times and dates that fit in with your schedule. Then, we’ll discuss the best plan of action for you, whether it’s referral back to the NHS for treatment, or connecting you with a private specialist consultant.

What our patients think

Really constructive appointment with Dr Welch who is knowledgeable, reassuring and empathetic. She gives clear explanations and advice whilst taking a collaborative approach. From my experience, I would highly recommend her care. Thank you.

Sam, Chipping Norton

What an incredible service, from start to finish.  My appointment was well over 45 minutes and allowed me and the doctor to really explore the menopause factors impacting me at the moment. We drew up an action plan, and she really helped me to prioritise what mattered to me and balancing hormones, drugs and side effects.  I left with a huge weight off my shoulders, and cannot believe I waited so long to see a specialist. The appointment was world’s way from my NHS experience and worth every penny.

Excellent and friendly service. Women’s health appointment in the St Albans clinic, which was welcoming and professional.

Frequently asked questions

Can I claim for my appointment on insurance?

You need to speak to your insurer prior to your appointment. Some insurers will reimburse you for the appointment, but you will need to present any documentation at the time of your appointment for the doctor to sign. Please note that all our doctors are registered with the GMC on the GP register not the consultant register. Please ensure you make this clear to your insurers at the outset.

Do you treat nervous patients?

Yes. We have the luxury of time to ensure our patients are fully informed and feel confident in the treatment they are receiving or any procedures. Our doctors are highly trained specialists in women’s health and procedures. For coil/implants, we can discuss pain relief options and assist in mitigating any fears or concerns.

How much do private prescriptions cost?

All NHS prescriptions are a set fee regardless of the cost of the drug. However, private prescriptions will be charged by the pharmacy for the individual drugs. The cost is roughly £20 for most HRT drugs, and £25 for Testosterone. A course of antibiotics can range from £5-20 per prescription. Your NHS GP may be able to prescribe HRT drugs, but this is at their discretion.
