Dr Katie Armstrong: Founder, Clinic51 Being an NHS GP and busy working mum in my 40’s, I understand only too well the impact that hormones can have on a woman’s life.
I founded Clinic51 in 2020, to offer a holistic approach to women’s health. I firmly believe that we should not have to be at the mercy of our hormones; that women should continue to be happy and healthy, throughout their reproductive life, through the menopause, and beyond.
At Clinic51 we are able to gather a full picture of your general health, how you are feeling, what matters to you, and how your symptoms are affecting your current quality of life -and what you want to get out of life in the future. Thankfully, there is more and more advice out there now about the effect of hormones and the menopause, but navigating it successfully can be a minefield. We are able to offer advice that is completely tailored to you, and your situation.
As well as a being a practising GP, I also trained with Dr Louise Newson, The British Menopause Society and The Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology – so offer access to the safest and most effective evidence-based treatments.
I often give talks on women’s hormones and menopausal health on Instagram, in the workplace, or at wellness events. I believe it is important to share as much information about the menopause as possible, so that women can feel informed and empowered.
