Respecting your choice

New guidance from the general medical council that comes into effect today could be very important to you.

The General Medical Council (GMC) expects all doctors to follow their professional guidance and thisĀ  tells doctors that they must respect patient choice – so if you have been struggling to get HRT or local oestrogen or both I highly recommend taking a look at the guidance so that you know exactly how your doctor should be working with you.

There are, of course, many doctors who are already working in this way but there are also those who are not, so I really hope that this will help to improve things for the future.
