One hundred and fifty new patients attending the Menopause Clinic at Dulwich Hospital were questioned on their attitudes and fears about hormone replacement therapy and the perceived attitudes of their general practitioner. The majority of patients attending the clinic had initiated referral themselves and many had travelled from outside the health authority area in order to be seen. The waiting list for an appointment was often unacceptable. We conclude that specialist menopause clinics in teaching hospitals are unable to cope with the demand for information about the menopause and hormone replacement from post-menopausal women and suggest alternative means for providing this service.
