Dr Joanne Hobson

Menopause and Psychosexual Medicine Specialist


Specialises in

I am a menopause specialist and have run a menopause clinic with a colleague for the last 15 years in Nottingham. I work in a Nottingham community gynaecology clinic and see all aspects of gynaecology including patients with some psychosexual problems.

I have worked in Nottingham as a GP for over 30 years and have always had an interest in women’s sexual health and psychosexual medicine. Although I am now retired as a partner in general practice I still undertake locum surgeries in primary care.

I am a member of the Institute of Psychosexual Medicine and regularly give talks to local groups, including The Moving Forward Course for women recovering from breast cancer.

I contribute to local radio programmes on general health as well as menopausal topics. I recently gave a series of talks to Derbyshire Constabulary about the menopause in the workplace and how it affects women.
