Dr Julie Oliver
PCWHF Chair and GPwSI women’s health, Durham
Completing her medical degree at Leeds she endeavoured to pursue a career in Obs and Gynae. A twelve month post working at the prestigious Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle consolidated her desire for this career path until it dawned on the fresh-faced junior doctor that her sleep would be interrupted for the rest of her working life. A swift change to General Practice soon followed along with marriage and 2 children. But the desire to do more women’s health continued and she passed the RCOG diploma, DFFP, letters of competence in coils, implants, medical education and finally Bradford’s postgraduate diploma in gynaecology.

Following graduation from Bradford she was part of a team to set up the Primary Care Women’s Health Forum, helping spread the word across the Primary Care community of changes and developments. Having persuaded the PCT to pay for her training she then found the opportunities to work within the PCT had disappeared so set up a company called “Durham Gynae” to deliver a community gynaecology clinic. She enjoys training colleagues in women’s health and travelling, but mostly getting 8 hours uninterrupted sleep.
