Hot off the press

Fiona’s back on the show next Sunday and the week’s hot topic (apart from a quick mention no doubt of Wednesday’s Great British Bake Off final!) is one that will strike a chord with many Girls Around Town listeners: the facts and myths surrounding the menopause.

In the first hour, she’ll be talking about how she’s helped lots of ladies through the transition of menopause over the past 16 years. Realising that women are very keen to help themselves and open to lots of different health ideas to achieve this, she’s put together some of the most successful things she’s seen work into a presentation which she’s now offering as a girls night in with a difference.

And the best part of it is, Fiona will come to you…

Then, after 11am, Deborah Garlick joins Fiona and June hotfoot from the successful launch of the Henpicked book, Menopause: The Change For The Better.

Find out why Deborah feels so strongly about the need for women to embrace the change, how the book came about and how its launch on World Menopause Day last week saw her #HotFlashMob tweets trending in the UK’s top 10 topics!

Tune in or listen online from 10am to 12 noon to discover how, as the women who will live longer post-menopause than any others in history, we can all make it count!

The change for the better


Why do women go through the menopause, when does it happen and what can you do if you’re experiencing symptoms that stop you enjoying life to the full?

Is HRT safe, is it good for you and how do you separate the facts from the myths?

If these are questions you’ve been pondering, this event from Henpicked will go a long way to answering them for you…

From 7.30pm to 9.30pm on Thursday 13 October, it’s open to all and everyone attending will be sent a free copy of the book Menopause: The Change For The Better before its launch on Tuesday 18 October.

Join Henpicked at The Beeches Hotel, Wilford Lane, Nottingham NG2 7RN to hear what Dr Louise Newson of My Menopause Doctor has to say.

A GP in Solihull, Dr Newson runs a private menopause clinic at the town’s Spire Parkway Hospital. She’s also a medical writer for numerous companies, writes healthcare articles for doctors and patients on a whole range of different topics and you may well have seen her on the BBC or read her articles in the Daily Mail, Telegraph, Good Housekeeping and Prima.

She has a particular interest in managing the menopause and feels passionately that women should be offered the correct information about treatment options so they can make an informed choice regarding management of their menopause.

Places at the event are £12 each, including tea/coffee and cakes and of course your FREE copy of Menopause: The Change For The Better. Profits from this event will go to The Daisy Network, a  registered UK charity supporting those affected by premature menopause…
