This webinar is intended for UK healthcare professionals only.

This webinar has been sponsored by Gedeon Richter by way of a promotional presentation slot on the meeting’s agenda. Gedeon Richter have had no input into the rest of the meeting’s educational agenda.

Join guest speakers Dr Anne Connolly MBE and Dr Julie Oliver as they use cases typically seen in primary care to discuss how to optimise counselling, support women with choices, dispel myths and manage problems. This webinar will also explore findings from the PCWHF's new LARC report which identifies pressures on LARC services, and discuss how we can maintain these important services for our women.

Our expert speakers will answer your questions and arm you with the knowledge you need for support the women in your clinic.


Dr Anne Connolly MBE
GPwSI gynaecology, Bradford
After a 2-year volunteering post to the under resourced mission hospital in rural Zimbabwe, Anne returned to general practice in inner city Bradford in 1990 and is currently working as a GP providing care for asylum seekers, refugees, homeless and sex workers.

She is a GPwSI in gynaecology, accredited as a hysteroscopist and FSRH trainer. She has been involved in commissioning since 2006 and retired as CCG clinical board member with remit for maternity, women’s, children’s, and young people’s healthcare in 2019.

Anne is chair of the PCWHF and RCGP clinical champion for women’s health. She is also co-editor of women’s health in primary care. Anne was honoured to be awarded an MBE for her work in women’s health in the 2021 Queen's Birthday Honours list.
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.
