Dr Jane Robertson
MBBS MRCGP DCH DRCOG DFFP
GP and Menopause Specialist
Jane qualified from Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1996. She initially worked as a GP in Northwest London. She has been working at a surgery in Worcestershire for the past 15 years. She enjoys the variety and continuity of care that exists within general practice.
Attending the theory course for the Diploma in Menopause Care run by the British Menopause Society in 2012 ignited her interest in the care of women going through the perimenopause and menopause. The practical sessions to finish the diploma were completed at Birmingham Women’s Hospital.
Her experiences within general practice, personally, and with family/friends have been key to Jane realising the extent and huge variation of psychological and physical symptoms that women may experience during the perimenopause and menopause and in particular how early the perimenopause can begin. These symptoms can have a massive impact on their personal and professional lives. She feels passionately that women should receive full and adequate, evidence based information to help them make decisions about their care, at this time in their lives.
Jane enjoys walking (and a new love of cycling since lockdown!) in Warwickshire with her family (husband Narinder 2 daughters and 2 grown up stepchildren). Periodically pausing the “hamster wheel of life” to de-brief with friends over prosecco is also important to her!
When she and her family can, they love to escape to Cornwall (where Jane grew up) for body boarding and the odd cream tea!
