103 - Dr Radhika Vohra: When will women's health become a priority?
In this episode, Dr Louise Newson talks to GP and Trustee of The Menopause Charity, Dr Radhika Vohra. Radhika is a GP with a special interest in women's health, particularly the menopause and perimenopause. She is also an educator for GP trainees and other healthcare professionals.
Together they discuss the current landscape of menopause care in the UK, the poor profile menopause has in healthcare, training and research and the improved appetite professionals now have for more menopause education. Radhika shares her insights from a women's health perspective and hopes the work of The Menopause Charity will be a voice for everyone.
Radhika's 3 hopes for menopause across the globe:
- Greater recognition of the impact of perimenopause and menopause on women's lives
- More education for women and healthcare professionals alike
- Better support for women and professionals working with menopausal women.
