Dr Catherine Taylor joins the Newson Health team!
Published: 6th December 2018
Today is a special day here at Newson Health as we welcome another new doctor to our team - Dr Catherine Taylor!
Catherine graduated from the University of Birmingham Medical School( MBChB) in 1993 with honours in obstetrics and gynaecology, and this was the foundation for her career-long interest in all aspects of women’s health. She trained as a GP gaining membership of the Royal College of GPs (MRCGP) and joined a local practice in 2001 where she continues to work as a GP today.
Catherine has pursued her interest in women’s health gaining a post graduate Diploma in obstetrics and gynaecology (DRCOG) as well as additional qualifications in sexual and reproductive health (DFSRH).
As a partner in a busy medical practice, as well as having teenage children and ageing parents , Catherine is well aware of the need for women at this stage of their lives to feel the best they can with all the multiple challenges that they deal with on a daily basis. Catherine spends a lot of time in her GP practice helping women to improve their experience of the menopause, through advice, education and evidence based prescribing of HRT, and she is delighted to be able to bring this experience to help more women through working at Newson Health.
Newson Health Menopause and Wellbeing Centre was founded by leading menopause specialist and GP, Dr Louise Newson, and officially opened in September 2018 by Liz Earle MBE. Created to help women receive the most appropriate, individualised treatment for their perimenopause and menopause, it has quickly become a centre of excellence, providing care to women of all ages, as well as running educational events for primary care clinicians.
Dr Newson is also the founder of the Menopause Doctor website, a free resource since 2017, providing the latest unbiased, evidence based information about the menopause and perimenopause for women as well as the most recent national and international menopause articles and guidelines for healthcare professionals. The website has been adopted by the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) as an official educational library aimed at patients and healthcare professionals wishing to learn more about the menopause.
Newson Health Research and Education is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Dr Newson, from which all profits gained from the organisation's activities, such as event sponsorship, delegate fees and speaker's fees, are invested back into the business.
