The team will be led by Madelaine McTernan, the director general of the highly successful Vaccines Taskforce, which secured plentiful supplies of the best Covid jabs. Women are struggling to access vital HRT medications, with stocks of oestrogen gel most recently affected.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid said: “Women rely on HRT so we will leave no stone unturned.”

Ms McTernan said: “We will apply the key learnings from the successful way the Vaccine Taskforce have procured life-saving vaccines during the pandemic.”

The cost of HRT prescriptions will also be reduced from April 2023. Women will pay one annual charge of £18.70.
