Catherine trained in medicine at St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical School, and undertook an intercalated degree in psychology at UCL, contributing to research into dependent attitudes of elderly patients and relationship to wellbeing.
Following junior doctor jobs in London and West Lothian, she completed general practice training, and worked first as a GP partner in Hackney, East London for 7 years, then as a salaried GP in Bedminster, Bristol for 15 years, during which she developed interests in substance misuse management, and in dementia.
Increasingly interested in innovations for patient-centred care in dementia, Catherine is now studying for a PhD as a clinical training fellow with the REACH team at Exeter, looking at issues around awareness in early dementia.
