Government rejects mandatory menopause training for GPs
The Government have rejected a recommendation to introduce mandatory menopause training to GPs saying it is 'not necessary.'
In July 2022, the House of Commons Women and Equalities Committee published a report on the menopause which argued that the overlooked effects of the menopause were causing the UK economy to “haemorrhage talent'.
However, on Tuesday the Government responded to the report, saying it is not within its remit to require every GP surgery has training on menopause.
The Government also recently rejected calls for a large scale pilot of menopause leave.
