FSB welcomes support of HRT tsar and calls for action on menopause and work
Responding to the appointment of a new HRT tsar, Tina McKenzie, FSB Chair, Policy and Advocacy, said:
“It is welcome to see this appointment to address the supply issues for HRT products. Hopefully, this will mark a moment to reflect on the importance of the menopause in public policy.
“There is a lack of awareness across society about the menopause. Especially given that women over 50 are the fastest growing section of the workforce, it is really important that individuals get the support they need.
“We recommended in our recent Business Without Barriers report that the Government should review NICE Guidelines, including on the menopause and other conditions that impact participation in work, such as anxiety, to ensure they include appropriate advice about work and employment. So, we would welcome a strategy that considered these issues.”
