Nottingham hospital menopause scheme hailed by staff

Hospital staff in Nottingham have said they are keen to build on the success of its menopause support scheme.

Nottingham University Hospitals Trust (NUH) said 24% of its staff were aged 45-55, the most common age for the condition.

Staff can ask for lighter uniforms, shift changes, more time to complete tasks or access to fans in offices. Advice, awareness training and access to specialist staff are also part of the scheme.

Jenny Good, NUH Staff Wellbeing Lead, said: "We strongly believe that menopause is an issue for everybody. Everyone knows somebody who will go through it.

"The conversation has opened up."
