MRCGP DFSRH Advanced Menopause
I am an experienced general medical practitioner (GP) and Menopause Specialist. I graduated from The University of Leeds in 2007 and went onto gain membership with the Royal College of General Practitioners in 2014. Having completed my diploma with the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare in 2011 I am now a Faculty trainer and support other clinicians during their training. In February 2023 I completed the Advanced Certificate in Menopause Care with the FRSH and have been issued Menopause Specialist status with the British Menopause Society.
I am a member of the British Menopause Society, International Menopause Society and the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare.
As a GP I have been able to witness the difference that good menopause care can make to women's lives. The menopause can be an extremely challenging and emotive time. However, given the right help I believe that the menopause can also be a very positive experience.
I see women at all stages of the menopause including those with complex health issues, women who have been through cancer treatment or having ongoing treatment and those that have been denied treatments for menopause for a range of reasons.
Given the right support women can make positive lifestyle choices at any stage of their lives.
I am committed to providing you with a high standard of evidence-based care. The care you receive will be patient-centred, individualised and holistic.
