Jayne graduated from Nottingham University medical school in 2010 and went on to complete her GP training in London. Jayne is passionate about women’s healthcare and the menopause. She believes strongly that all women should have access to good quality healthcare and be empowered to make informed choices. She is a member of the British Menopause Society and has completed the Advanced Certificate in the Principles and Practice of Menopause Care. She has also gained the diploma from the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health. She has undergone additional training in order to fit coils and contraceptive implants, which she does regularly in her GP practice.
Jayne currently works as a GP in Cardiff where she is Women’s Health and Menopause lead for her practice. She has set up and now runs a menopause clinic within her practice and is in the process of doing the same for her local cluster of GP practices in East Cardiff. She sees first-hand the impact the menopause can have on women’s lives and the importance of evidence-based and empathetic healthcare to support women through this time.
When not at work Jayne enjoys spending time with her husband and three small children. She loves hiking, swimming in the sea, losing herself in books and spending time with friends.
