Queen’s Park menopause event aims to end “suffering in silence”


Three expert speakers will be on hand to talk all things menopause at a community event in Queen’s Park this week.

Organised by Anita Powell, founder of Menopause Alliance and Cllr Nesreen Akhtar, the event on Friday 18 March aims to raise awareness about all things perimenopause, menopause and beyond.

Speakers include BEDOC menopause clinic lead, Lesley Quinn; obstetric and gynaecology Registrar, Emily Davy and consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist, Thanga Katimada.

“BEDOC is delighted to be represented at this event,” said Lesley.

“Our menopause service is very popular and highly regarded in the community and it is important that we continue to spread the word that specialist care is available on the NHS in this area.

“I would like to encourage anyone who thinks they may be experiencing symptoms of menopause or perimenopause to come along to the event to find out more.

“It’s vital we break down the stigma around menopause and events like this are a great way to start conversations and help anyone suffering in silence.”

The event will take place between 5.30pm and 6.30pm on Friday 18 March Queens Park Community Centre within All Saints Church on Marlborough Road.

No need to book, guests can just turn up. For more information call 07772 662551 or check out the Menopause Alliance Facebook page.
