There are no current plans to make bio-identical hormone replacement therapy routinely available on National Health Service prescription. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is the Agency responsible for the regulation of medicines used in the United Kingdom. There is a clear regime in place, administered by the MHRA, to enable medicines to be developed, authorised (licensed) and made available to patients in the UK. It is important that authorised medicines meet rigorous standards so that doctors and patients are sure of their quality, efficacy and safety.
