Dr Rebecca Lewis
MBBS FRCA DRCOG MRCGP
GP and Menopause Specialist
Rebecca qualified from Guy’s Medical school and initially pursued a career in Anaesthetics gaining FRCA in 1996
She then changed speciality to General Practice (MRCGP 2000) having been interested in women’s health and gained DRCOG in 1998. During her time in General Practice, she became interested in the menopause and by how dramatically it could affect individuals. She found this the most rewarding area of medicine to be involved in as once a woman is correctly diagnosed and treated with the right type and dose of HRT their lives can be transformed and needless suffering stopped. As a result, she is now passionate about improving education and knowledge about the menopause, not only within medicine but in the workplace and society as a whole. Her aim is to make the menopause a positive experience not hampered by symptoms so that women can be allowed to get on and enjoy healthy, active lives for many years ahead
She now works solely within the menopause speciality and dedicates her time to seeing patients and lecturing and writing articles with the aim to empower women with evidence based knowledge so that they can make informed decisions about managing their menopause. She works closely with Dr Louise Newson supporting her in her tireless work and is also a director of the not-for-profit company Newson Health Research and Education and is a director of the free Balance app.
She is married with two teenage children and when not being a taxi service for them loves all sorts of exercise especially running and ski-ing.
