"The Aviva digital GP was so helpful, went through everything with me and did the assessment with me.

"I rate this menopause service very highly and can only imagine the positive impact it will have on female employees within NEXT.  To be able to talk to someone who understands what they are going through and who can offer the advice to take further steps."

"The menopause nurse I spoke to was lovely.  She listened to all of my symptoms and experiences, offered me virtual hugs for the tears that I cried and offered great advice.

"I was asked to make another appointment with her in a couple of weeks for a review of how things are going, and to see if I'd managed to see my GP.

"The call lasted about 30 minutes and at no point did I feel rushed or pressured."

What's covered:

The service covers access to an information hub, a symptoms scorecard assessment with up to 6 FREE 30 minute sessions with a menopause nurse to discuss symptoms, lifestyle changes and treatment options.
