Timpson to cover HRT costs for staff going through menopause
Retail service provider Timpson Group has said that staff can expense their prescription costs for recommended HRT.
Employees of the cobbler and key-cutting firm can claim hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on expenses. The treatment relieves symptoms of the menopause.
In a tweet, group chief executive James Timpson said: “It’s so important that we support our colleagues going through the menopause.”
The news was announced on Twitter to mark World Menopause day: “From today all my colleagues can claim on expenses their prescription costs when they are recommended HRT. It’s so important that we support our colleagues going through the menopause.”
World Menopause Day aims to raise awareness of the menopause, and the support options available for improving health and wellbeing.
James Timpson was awarded the OBE in 2011 for the work he has done to provide jobs for ex-offenders. He is currently Chair of the Prison Reform Trust and sits on the Board at the Tate.
