Here at Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, women make up approximately 75% of the workforce. Of these women, 46% are between the ages of 45-60, the normal age of transition from peri-menopause to post menopause.
The menopause affects all women and can have significant consequences both on impact of symptoms and later health problems. Despite this, many women are unaware of the effects and are confused about benefits and risks of treatment options.
Our hope is that this information page will play an important role in raising awareness of all menopausal symptoms and, will encourage women to consider lifestyle changes to improve later health. Ultimately, we want women to be empowered to make informed choices about menopause management and to know what support is available to them from their GP, Occupational Health and Well-being nurses and work colleagues.
