After working in the UK as a junior doctor she travelled and worked in Australia before returning to the UK to undertake a medical rotation in Dorset.
In 2002 Catherine began her General Practice training enjoying the holistic continuity of patient care and diversity of this path. Catherine has always had a special interest in women’s health and dermatology. (She has worked as a Dermatology clinical assistant and has completed a diploma in dermatology).
Evidence -based medicine along side individual patient needs and choices has guided her practice. Her interest in the peri-menopause and menopause, and its impact on women’s health and wellbeing has become more focused in recent years particularly after seeing the impact of premature menopause and menopausal symptoms on friends’ and patients’ lives. She feels passionately that woman should have available to them accurate information on which to make their own informed choices and be supported through what for many can be a challenging time in their lives.
She has a diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and has completed a menopause course.
She enjoys listening to the lively and informative Louise Newson menopause podcasts.
