The UK National Dementia Strategy 2009 outlines the problems of cognitive decline and dementia; among which it stresses the importance of early diagnosis. This is an area in which menopause services and clinics could and should have an important input to the strategy. Cognitive change, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease are recognized late complications of the menopause, and severe conditions in untreated premature menopause. Two to three times more women than men are affected by dementia; the situation regarding measuring cognitive change is explored.
