Liz pays tribute to all the menopause warriors!

With International Women’s Day tomorrow I had the chance today to pay tribute to the Menopause Warriors – all the individuals and organisations who’ve forced this issue up the agenda, including Carolyn Harris, the Labour MP for Swansea East.

It was her private members bill that made Ministers finally agree to cut the cost of HRT prescriptions. But questions remain.

Will all products that help with menopause symptoms be eligible for the prescription prepayment scheme?

What are Ministers doing to end the ongoing and unacceptable shortages in HRT that are causing women such anxiety?

And if this issue is such a priority for the Government, why hasn’t the menopause taskforce met since June last year?

Because ass I warned the Minister… the warriors don’t want to wait! Watch my question and the answer received above.
