    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    Dr Dempster was a part-time GP in Rowlands castle for 27 years before retiring in December in 2012. Since then she has done locum GP sessions mainly for that practice.

    Until 2009 Dr Dempster was a trainer for the Faculty of Family Planning and did regular sessions in this in Portsmouth and Havant, she therefore has training and understanding in women’s issues.

    Since 2009 Dr Dempster has been working at Spire Portsmouth Hospital in the BUPA Wellness department doing health assessments; she now practices as a private GP within the hospital.

    Personal profile:

    Having been brought up in the Lake District and then trained in Edinburgh Dr Dempster is keen on walking and sailing. She and her husband also really enjoy cross-country skiing and going to their local theatre at Chichester.

    Dr Dempster has also embarked on an Open University degree course in humanities and has now completed the equivalent of the first year which she found challenging but very rewarding.
