Women in the north-east of Scotland are having to wait up to 107 weeks for specialist menopause care.

Statistics exclusively obtained by Scotland Tonight show NHS Grampian has an average waiting list for menopause clinics of more than two years. 

A total of 1,024 referrals have been made by GPs within the health board area since 2019-20.

Around 400,000 women in Scotland are of menopause age.

Typically, it affects those between the ages of 45-55, whose periods have stopped as a result of falling hormone levels.

It can cause a range of symptoms, which can be debilitating and distressing, such as anxiety, hot flushes, mood swings, and brain fog.
