My journey within the medical field began 20 years ago now, which has flown by. I studied for the Bachelor of Medicine at Southampton University, U.K. I then went and had twin boys in my third year, which was not part of the plan, so had to defer for a year. That was a real turning point for me and when I returned to my studies there was a drive and an impetus to study as hard as I could, rather than just party the nights away at the Union Bar. I certainly passed with flying colours and entered into the then popular General Practitioner training scheme on the Isle of Wight, in the U.K. After this specialist training I became a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, a Diplomate of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists as well as a Fellow of the Faculty of Reproductive and Sexual Health.
I then embarked on a full time career as partner within a large practice on the Isle of Wight aswell as a clinician within the sexual health department of the local hospital.
It was in 2011 that my husband and I needed a change to our lifestyle. I was becoming more and more disillusioned with the "tick box medicine" the National Health service was pushing me into, with less and less time spent with patients. More and more of my time and energy thinking about budgets and politics. So off down under we went and have never looked back.
I am now providing a service I am proud of, helping people from all walks of life better understand and manage their health needs.
