The Men’s Health Clinic is an internationally recognised, CQC registered private medical clinic that specialises in delivering patient-centred care.

Although the primary focus since opening our clinic in 2016 has been in addressing and treating male hormone deficiency, we are pleased to now be applying the wealth of knowledge and expertise that we have gained over the years to the world of female Hormone Replacement Therapy.

As a member of both the British and International Societies for Sexual Medicine, and The British Menopause Society, we take the best available guidelines and make them more effective, with more thorough monitoring and more progressive treatment options.  Safety and effectiveness are always our primary goals.

All treatment begins with a comprehensive diagnostic work-up that not only looks at your hormones, but also your other more general health parameters.  It is important to appreciate that in order to improve physical and psychological well-being, it is necessary to address the whole person, not just the medical condition.

Our mission is to deliver gold standard care in both diagnostics, using state of the art equipment, and revolutionary treatments that go above and beyond your typical medical therapies.  Our highly experienced and progressive team provide realistic expectations and support you at every step of your journey with us.

In addition to male and female Hormone Replacement Therapy, we also offer a range of medical and therapeutic services that support our progressive and holistic ethos.

Further information regarding the Female HRT programme offered by our clinic can be found in this article.

Consultations

Initial Assessment: £0-£50

Contact & Book

If you wish to be considered for Hormone Replacement Therapy at our clinic, your first step is to organise a comprehensive blood test that includes a full hormone panel, as well as your more general health parameters.

If you are based in the UK, we can help you with organising the necessary blood testing through our clinic, which will be followed by a courtesy telephone call with Dr Stevens at no additional charge. During this call he will review your initial comprehensive blood results with you, and give you his professional recommendations for moving forwards.

If you have already had recent blood tests carried out but have not yet started any type of Hormone Replacement Therapy, please forward those to us by email.  They will be reviewed by Dr Stevens, who will personally contact you by email with recommended next steps.

If you are already on Hormone Replacement Therapy and wish to transfer your care to our clinic, please forward your most recent blood results by email for Dr Stevens to review and advise you further.

If you wish to discuss your personal situation further prior to committing to treatment with us, you are welcome to book a 15-minute Telephone Consultation with Dr Stevens, there is a fee for this service.

Please note, HRT is contraindicated in women with a current, past, or suspected history of breast or other oestrogen receptive cancer, i.e. ovarian. Please advise us prior to the initial assessment process if this applies to you.

New Patient HRT Consultation: £420 + Medication

Contact & Book

Your first appointment will always involve an in-person consultation with Dr Stevens at our Dorset clinic.

At this consultation, Dr Stevens will take a detailed medical and social history from you, thoroughly assess your blood results, perform a basic physical examination and have an in-depth discussion with you regarding Hormone Replacement Therapy and your expectations, before commencing treatment with you.

Where appropriate, Dr Stevens will go through safe preparation of your injectable medications, and gently guide you through safe and correct injection technique so that you leave the consultation room with confidence, ready to embark on the next stage in your journey.

At the end of your consultation, you will have complimentary use of our InBody 770 medical-grade body composition scanner.  This allows us to record and track data relating to your physical health, as well as providing you with a benchmark to work from.  Repeat scanning will also form part of any annual face-to-face follow up consultations carried out in clinic, there is no additional fee for this service.

We are always happy to support you in approaching your GP to have your blood investigations and medications supplied under the NHS where possible. A letter can be issued at the end of your consultation, or at a later date, if required.

Please allow up to 90-minutes for this appointment.

Special Instructions:

All new patients (including international) must attend clinic for their New Patient Consultation and for their first annual review, usually 12-15 months later. This is non-negotiable as it promotes safe and effective UK practice.

After your first annual review in clinic, if you are a UK resident and stable on treatment, you can be approved for remote consultations and will no longer be required to attend clinic annually.  Your treatment can then be managed remotely if preferred.

All international patients will still be required to attend clinic every 12 months to collect their medications.

Telephone Consultation: £50

Contact & Book

Four weeks after starting treatment with us, you will have a blood test to see how your body is responding to therapy. Everybody is unique and responds to treatment differently, so it is important that this blood test is taken and reviewed at this stage.

We can help you arrange your blood tests through clinic, or your GP may agree to organising these for you. Once we have received your results, you will be asked to schedule a 15-minute Telephone Consultation with Dr Stevens to review your results, discuss how therapy is going and for any adjustments to be made to your starting protocol if necessary.

You are welcome to book a Telephone Consultation with Dr Stevens between routine follow-ups, if you wish to discuss your current treatment plan over the phone, rather than by email.

Please allow up to 15 minutes for this appointment.

Follow Up HRT Consultation: £80 - £160

Contact & Book

Your first formal follow up consultation is usually three months after starting treatment with us, you will then be routinely reviewed every 6-12 months.

You have the option of attending clinic for these appointments, where the necessary monitoring blood tests can be taken as part of your consultation and so no need to organise these in advance. Alternatively, if opting for a video consultation, we can help you arrange your blood tests remotely, or your GP may agree to organising these for you.

This consultation will be an opportunity to discuss your well-being and any side effects that you may be experiencing.  Dr Stevens will then correlate this information with your blood results to see where your hormone levels are now that you are stable.  Your next three months of medications will also be issued following this appointment.

After this consultation, you will then be followed up once every 6-12 months, along with up to date blood results, where Dr Stevens will review your current protocol, discuss any health concerns that you might have and formulate an on-going action plan so that we can continue to safely and effectively prescribe your HRT.

Once every 12 months you will return to clinic for an annual face-to-face consultation with physical examination.  At this appointment you will have another opportunity to use our InBody 770 body composition scanner so that we can continue to track and record data relating to your on-going physical health.

For all video consultations, you have the option of either a 15-minute (£80) or 30-minute (£160) consultation.  If everything is going well with nothing to report, you are welcome to opt for a 15-minute appointment, otherwise please book a 30-minute appointment.

Please allow up to 30 minutes for all clinic appointments.

Special Instructions:

All patients (including international) must attend clinic for their first face-to-face follow up consultation, usually 12-15 months after commencing treatment.

After your first follow-up consultation in clinic, if you are a UK resident and stable on treatment you can be approved for remote consultations, and will no longer be required to attend clinic annually.  Your treatment can then be managed remotely if preferred.

All international patients will still be required to attend clinic every 12 months to collect their medications.

IMPORTANT: If you are based in the UK and opt for your annual consultations to be carried out remotely, you will need to provide evidence of a recent blood pressure check prior to your appointment. This can be arranged through your GP or another private provider if required.

Please forward the above evidence by email PRIOR to your video consultation, as your next prescription/s will not be issued or dispensed until your notes have been updated with this information.

Interim Protocol Changes: £0-£50

Occasionally, additional blood tests are required when protocol adjustments have been made outside of your routine reviews. We can help you arrange the necessary blood panel through clinic, or your GP may agree to organising this for you.  If so, please ensure that they include all of the tests listed.

Treatment Options & Costs

HRT Options & Costs:

Our gold standard female Hormone Replacement Therapy is a combination of an injectable oestrogen (Oestradiol Valerate), plus an injectable testosterone (Testosterone Cypionate). The benefits of testosterone in Female HRT are discussed further in this article.

Both medications are administered alongside a body identical progesterone where necessary. All medications are safely prescribed with a protocol specifically designed and tailored to meet your individual needs.

Utilising injectable oestrogen and testosterone for use in female HRT is uncommon in the UK, however it is extremely common practice in the United States and Europe. It’s method of administration means that your dose can be carefully titrated and managed according to your body’s own requirements and natural response. This is scientifically measured via regular blood testing, with your blood parameters being thoroughly reviewed by your doctor who will use this information to make any necessary adjustments to your personal dosing regimen.

If you would prefer more traditional methods of HRT, including oestrogen patches and gel, these are available on a private prescription and can be discussed with our doctor during your consultation.

Please contact us if you would like a full breakdown of all HRT medication options offered by The Men’s Health Clinic.
