Getting The Most Out Of Your GP Appointment
Thursday 11th March - 6PM
Most GP appointments are just 10 or 12 minutes long. That is often frustratingly brief for both doctor and patient. I have been an NHS GP for over 25 years. During that time I have formulated some top tips on making the very most out of those minutes and I am looking forward to sharing them with you on March 11th.
Dr Dawn Harper is a practicing NHS GP and has worked in the NHS for over 30 years. A member of the Royal College of Physicians, she is a popular speaker at events including corporate health and well-being days, Royal Television Society debates and live events such as Countryfile Live, This Morning Live and the Women’s Institute AGM. In the last year, she has travelled to Prague, Munich and Seattle to chair international conferences on chronic migraine, epilepsy and psoriatic arthropathy, and has more to follow this year and next year in the US and Europe.
For the last 12 years Dawn has worked extensively in the media. Probably best known as one of the presenters of Channel 4’s BAFTA award winning Embarrassing Bodies, which has now been shown in 120 countries across the world, she has presented several other shows such as the Channel 4 series ‘Born Naughty’. She has authored 12 books, is a keen supporter of children’s and health charities and is regularly asked to comment on medical headlines on live television and radio.

Thrive Through Menopause – Sleep, Feel And Look Your Best
Saturday 13th March - 2PM
We’ll cover top tips on how to beat menopause insomnia, balance your hormones, lose weight and have glowing skin.
Deborah has spent the last 20 years specialising in medical aesthetics, in 2015, she shifted my practice from purely medical aesthetics to menopause, hormonal balance and women's midlife care. Deborah realised that the patients she was treating for age management and aesthetics were also talking to her about their hormonal imbalance, their menopausal symptoms and how it was affecting them physically and mentally.
