Dr Zoe Hodson
MBChB MRCGP Dip FRSH
GP and Menopause Specialist
Zoe graduated from the University of Birmingham Medical School in 1996 and spent time working in Australia before returning to the UK and settling in Manchester to train as a GP (MRCGP 2000). During her time as a GP Partner she has run a Family Planning service at the surgery, including coil and contraceptive implant fitting (Diploma FRSH 2008) as she has always had an interest in Women’s Health and Wellbeing as well as being a GP Trainer.
Over the last few years she has studied menopause care and is keen for women to receive evidence based information about HRT as well as counselling them on lifestyle measures that can be adopted to help with the plethora of symptoms and improve their overall health. She is a member of the British Menopause Society and has completed the Certificate in Menopause Care.
Training is an area she has been involved with for over 20 years at a practice level and she is looking forward to expanding on this by leading menopause educational sessions for primary care healthcare professionals. She also gives presentations about the menopause both in the community and at places of work.
In her spare time Zoe enjoys spending time with her partner Andy, his 25 cameras and her three children plus small menagerie of waifs and strays. She likes to have a knitting project (or ten) on the go at any given time and also enjoys upcycling old curtains into various garments and seeing which plants can survive her TLC.
