Self-isolation is placing huge pressures on individuals and families. However, some medical situations, which may not normally be considered, including the onset of symptoms of the menopause, can also make close-quarter life almost intolerable.
Gynaecology and symptoms of menopause
The London PMS & Menopause clinic are therefore continuing to help and advise women who find themselves in this situation. A team of some of the most experienced and qualified gynaecologists are utilising tele-health and prescription deliveries to help patients who would otherwise be left suffering. The team of gynaecologists can help with pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), depression caused by hormones (reproductive depression), osteoporosis and other symptoms of the menopause.
The clinic can be contacted directly on 020 7486 0497

Some advocates of technology that helps 'working from home' don't like to use the term 'remote' working, as this infers a distance between the parties that is more than just geographical. Instead they prefer the term 'distributive' working. Medicine is obviously no stranger to tele-health and many increasingly sophisticated systems are being shared amongst patients and professionals. This allows the flexible review of conditions without the formalities and inconvenience of having to meet at a specific place and at an agreed time.
For heart monitoring, fitness assessments, mental health and diabetes, in many cases 'distributive medicine' has already become the norm. However, the pandemic lock down now means that many medical interventions have to be conducted by telephone or via other media communication.
