Save us from health fascists

How I enjoyed Dr Barrowcliffe's letter (March 15). For the past 24 years I have been using long-term HRT in patients who have requested it with immense benefit.

It is one of the few health interventions I sincerely believe makes a cost-effective difference. I have ladies on HRT well into their 70s who look like normal women, not hunched over wearing gabardine macs, dragging shopping trollies. HRT is not for everyone, but used sensibly can give relief from emotional and physical symptoms as well as conferring very real long-term benefit. 

Like Dr Barrowcliffe, I have seen no rise in HRT related disease. Please save us from health fascists who would deny women the right to make an informed decision about their own bodies and well-being.
