Dr Joanne Hobson
Menopause and Psychosexual Medicine Specialist
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.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Joanne Hobson at Spire include:
Spire Nottingham 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.
