HRT Shortages

HRT Shortages – Monday 25 November 2019

Dear Patients,

As a further update to the HRT shortages we are all experiencing.

Currently at The Female Health Clinic we are fulfilling prescriptions for our patients for their HRT. We are now prescribing gels for transdermal application for both oestrogen and testosterone supplementation. Progesterone currently remains unaffected.

Patches are generally unavailable mainly along with Tostran Gel. However we are advised that they may become available in January next year.

As per our last update please ensure that you order your HRT well in advance to prevent you from running out and call the clinic if you have any questions or concerns.

Please note that our £15 prescription fee will apply for all repeat prescription requests.

If you are switching to alternative brands or method baseline bloods maybe requested as part of our practice. Please enquire with the clinic should you have any questions or queries regards this.

HRT ShortagesTuesday, 28 August 2019

Dear Patients,

We are all currently experiencing the effects of the oestrogen patch and tablet supply shortage. The Female Health Clinic is able to fulfill our patient prescriptions for these items however it is sensible to allow 1-2 weeks delivery time and we are also providing limited scripts of 6-8 week medications for the patches as these are much more readily fulfilled than larger orders. We can give 3 month supplies of oral oestrogen.  Monitor your medication levels and contact the clinic in plenty of time to replenish your supply.

Please note that this issue is only relating to oestrogen patches and to a lesser extent  oestrogen tablets. Oestrogen gel, progesterone and testosterone are not affected.

We will monitor the situation and if any changes to ordering prescriptions is required we will advise as soon as we are able to. 

Please note that our £15 prescription fee will apply for all repeat prescription requests.
