Coping with menopause in the workplace

It was a real privilege and honour being invited back to ITV with Lorraine Kelly to talk about the potential impact the menopause can have in the workplace. A survey we undertook at West Midlands Police showed that around 80% of women had experienced symptoms affecting them at work and around a quarter had time off work because of their symptoms. The three most common symptoms were anxiety, fatigue and memory problems. Organisations need to be more proactive at helping women seek the correct advice and support for their menopause.
