A menopause policy for your practice

The majority of the dental workforce will be directly affected by menopause.

Ensuring you have a policy in place will help to create an open and honest working environment where anyone can discuss issues associated with the perimenopause and menopause.

The physical and psychological symptoms experienced when hormones begin to fluctuate and start falling effects all systems in your body and can vary greatly, negatively impacting comfort and performance at work. You can help employees by offering a policy including adjustments and additional support to anyone experiencing symptoms.

Our policy aims to help you create an environment where staff are comfortable and act in a positive and respectful manner towards each other when discussing menopause. To help ensure your practice offers support to anyone who needs it, we’ve put together a new menopause and perimenopause policy.

If you would like further information or support to implement the policy, our advice team are available to support Extra and Expert members throughout the UK with unlimited one-to-one advice. Call 020 7935 0875 or email [email protected].
