You have options in your menopause care
Menopause treatments tailored to you
The menopause and perimenopause can be daunting, and everyone’s experience is as unique as they are. That’s why Oxona’s team of specialist GPs believes all treatments should be tailored to your symptoms, your body and your choices.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which replaces the female hormones that dip as you go into menopause, isn’t right for everyone. And even when it is, it’s not one-size-fits-all.
We’re here to help you navigate this period of change with care and expertise. Our private clinics provide a relaxed, comforting environment, where we’ll help you understand what’s happening and what therapies available to you. No rushing or pressures, just space to be heard and find answers.
HRT tablets, gels & alternative treatments
Menopause and perimenopause symptoms aren’t something you just have to put up with, and there’s a wide range of options available. We can run quick tests to determine the best treatments for your body – whether it’s HRT, lifestyle tweaks or other methods – giving you everything you need to make an informed decision. And if you choose HRT, we’ll explore all the administration methods (eg tablets, gels, pessaries, implants, creams and sprays) and we can even prescribe testosterone, which is not generally available on the NHS for menopause patients.
We accept NHS GP referrals, or you can even refer yourself. And because we have greater flexibility with appointments, we can offer shorter wait times and dates that fit in with your schedule. Then, we’ll discuss the best plan of action for you, whether it’s referral back to the NHS for treatment, or connecting you with a private specialist consultant.
How it works
From the moment you book your appointment to post-treatment care, we’re here to support you.
- Place booking
Book your appointment online, with no need for a referral. Payment is arranged at the point of booking, and you’ll be asked to complete a pre-consultation questionnaire.
Your appointment will give you the time you need to discuss your problem. Our specialists will make sure you are truly heard, then answer your questions with understanding, offering impartial advice. Before moving forward, you’ll feel equipped to make an informed decision.
- Treatment plan
We don’t offer ‘off-the-shelf’ packages. Instead, we build treatment plans based on you as an individual, around your conditions and medical history. We will explore all available care pathways, taking into account any anxieties and respecting your decisions.
- Check in
We appreciate that discussing symptoms can be uncomfortable for some people, and that you may feel anxious about your appointment. But as soon as you check in for your appointment, our relaxed atmosphere – with welcoming surroundings and friendly staff – will soon put you at ease.
What our patients think
I was recommended to come here by my GP. Dr Anderson and her assistant Jasmine make a wonderful team. They both instantly put me at ease and carried out the procedure with great care, professionalism and reassurance, as I was nervous. I would not hesitate to return for any further skin issue and I highly recommend Oxona Healthcare.

I had a sebaceous cyst removed from my neck. Dr Joshi and Jasmine were professional, efficient and friendly throughout and I felt in very safe hands. Very pleased with the outcome and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend for any similar procedure.
- Anne, Oxford
Dr Anderson and Jasmine were brilliant, friendly, helpful and professional. I had a sebaceous cyst removed and I am very pleased with the result. Very impressed by the care taken and the time scale everything was completed, I would definitely recommend.
Frequently asked questions
Can I claim for my appointment on insurance?
You need to speak to your insurer prior to your appointment. Some insurers will reimburse you for the appointment, but you will need to present any documentation at the time of your appointment for the doctor to sign. Please note that all our doctors are registered with the GMC on the GP register not the consultant register. Please ensure you make this clear to your insurers at the outset.
Do you treat nervous patients?
Yes. We have the luxury of time to ensure our patients are fully informed and feel confident in the treatment they are receiving or any procedures. Our doctors are highly trained specialists in women’s health and procedures. For coil/implants, we can discuss pain relief options and assist in mitigating any fears or concerns.
How much do private prescriptions cost?
All NHS prescriptions are a set fee regardless of the cost of the drug. However, private prescriptions will be charged by the pharmacy for the individual drugs. The cost is roughly £20 for most HRT drugs, and £25 for Testosterone. A course of antibiotics can range from £5-20 per prescription. Your NHS GP may be able to prescribe HRT drugs, but this is at their discretion.
