Dr Jane Stephenson
MBChB MRCGP DFSRH LoCIUT & LoCSDI
GP and Menopause Specialist
Jane qualified in 1993 from the University of Birmingham Medical School (MBChB).
In 1995 she travelled back to Yorkshire to work, and after a year in Australia, in 1998 she became a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners. In the same year Jane became a GP partner in a semi-rural practice in East Yorkshire and remains there to date.
Jane enjoys being a GP and has had a special interest in women’s health since 1999 when she started to provide long-acting contraceptive services for her patients. She has letters of competence in intrauterine techniques and subdermal implants from the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health as well as their diploma.
Jane is married with two grown up children and understands the complexities of being a working Mum.
As an experienced GP Jane is very aware of the significant impact of the perimenopause and menopause, on the physical and psychological health of many women. Unfortunately, Jane is also aware that up to date advice and time for discussion is not always easy to access in the NHS and for this reason she undertook additional menopause training to enable her to join Newson Health.
She believes that women should be able to access high quality evidence-based advice so they can manage their menopause in a way which is right for them.
