Dr Jenny Hughes
"Spire allows me to provide top-class healthcare with timely access to investigations and onward referral to Consultants at Spire where needed."
I have been a GP for over 25 years and have experience in a range of areas within the field. I have a strong interest in the wide variety of patients and illnesses that present to me. I offer a full and comprehensive General Practice service, which covers screening and acute illness in males and females of all ages, and chronic disease management.
I enjoy working with patients to improve their overall health and wellbeing, managing their symptoms and putting primary prevention in place. Additionally, I have a particular interest in all aspects of women's health (including contraception and menopause) and in the management of stress and anxiety.
My clinical work currently involves a mixture of work in GP surgeries, and in Urgent Primary Care.
I enjoy learning and developing and I take part in annual GP Appraisal and 5 yearly Revalidation. I tailor my learning to specific patient encounters, new roles I am undertaking, and required updates including CPR and safeguarding. I take part in SEAs and regularly reflect upon my own practice to ensure I am continuous learning and providing my patients with the best care and advice available.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Jenny Hughes at Spire include:
Spire Cardiff Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

I enjoy spending my free time with friends and family, ideally outdoors enjoying our beautiful countryside and beaches. I love walking, running and have recently taken up tennis.
