What is the impact of the menopause on women working in the NHS?

The Strategy Unit is excited to be launching its new in-depth report into how the menopause is affecting both individuals and the workforce as a whole, at online festival INSIGHT 2022.

Colleagues are invited to join the expert panel on Monday 28 November, 10-11.30pm, where they will be revealing some of the findings of the report, and exploring the issues it raises, including:

  • What are the characteristics of NHS women of menopausal age?
  • What is it like to experience the menopause as a NHS employee?
  • What does it cost the NHS as an employer?

The panel will include the project leads Abeda Mulla (Strategy Unit), Justine Wiltshire (Strategy Unit) and Lisa Cummins (Health Economics Unit), who will be joined by Jacqui McBurnie (Chair of the NHS England Menopause Network) and Sarah Sheppard (Director of People Services, NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU). The session will be facilitated by Karen Bradley (Strategy Unit).
