ONLY half of women in the Midlands and Wales who visit their doctors with menopause symptoms are offered any treatment, a survey for the Amarant Trust shows today, writes Celia Hall. The trust, a 'research centre for women's health' and an advocate for hormone replacement therapy to treat menopause symptoms and avoid bone weakening, says that women deserve better treatment.

Women in the South do better; only one-third leave the surgery without a treatment offer, it says.
