Wellbeing and menopause

To mark World Menopause Day on 18 October, a free access to menopause resource has been launched for the health and care workforce.

NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care (NHS GM), Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust have partnered with the specialist menopause company Balance, to fund a series of CPD modules to increase peri-menopause and menopause confidence and knowledge in the workplace.

This provision is extended to support all health and care colleagues across Greater Manchester, and enables up to 10,000 colleagues to access the online CPD over a 12-month period.

This latest development to improve the menopause provision across Greater Manchester is part of a wider wellbeing programme that supports people with menopause to maintain good wellbeing.

Access will remain open for the next 12 months to all health and care workers across Greater Manchester. You can see the latest events and resources, including a podcast exploring menopause in the workplace with Dr Cath Munro, who will be running menopause sessions for colleagues over the coming months. Sign up here.

You will need a password to access the CPD resource open to all Greater Manchester health and care workers. Contact Dominic Anderson, Health and Wellbeing Programme Lead for Greater Manchester Primary Care Provider Board, for details.
