Hello! I’m Anne
British Menopause Society Accredited Menopause Specialist & Consultant Gynaecologist
I have been a Consultant within the NHS and private sectors for 15 years. During this time, I have witnessed many changes within both sectors, but I remain convinced that consultant-led care, such that which exists within the private sector, is the best model available. This offers patients complete continuity of care, as well as the expertise and experience which comes with the extensive training undergone by UK consultants.
I studied medicine at Cambridge University, before completing my clinical training at Guy’s Hospital in London (MA MB BChir, MRCOG).
I continued my specialist training in the South East, mainly at Kings College Hospital, then finally in the Wessex region. I have been a Consultant at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust for nearly 15 years and have a busy practice covering both obstetrics and gynaecology. My main area of clinical research was into the menopause, PMS and post natal depression, with particular emphasis on the benefits of hormonal therapy for these conditions. My surgical areas of interest include minimal access surgery (both laparoscopic and hysteroscopic), outpatient procedures, pelvic and vulval pain as well as general gynaecological procedures such as hysterectomy and prolapse surgery.
I am a strong advocate of multi-disciplinary care, and have included complementary therapies within my private practice for several years, working closely with a local Medical Herbalist, Anita Ralph, with whom I jointly run the Integrated Gynaecology Clinic. There have undoubtedly been significant recent advances in conventional medicine, particularly the trend towards outpatient management of menstrual problems, but I think there is a valid role for the inclusion of herbal therapies in routine practice, a view which is supported by sound scientific evidence. I also believe that nutritional support can be invaluable in the management of many gynaecological conditions, and work with Katie Peck, of PeckNutrition to ensure my patients have direct access to sound advice.
I pride myself in running a private practice where there is an extremely high standard of professionalism, where patients are directly involved in their care and management at all stages, and where new techniques and advances play a central role, which ensures that patients are offered the best possible care regardless of their age or diagnosis.
