Dr Hayley Jenkins
GP with specialist interest in women's health
Dr Hayley Jenkins has an extensive history in Family planning and women’s health. She spent her GP reg year was with a doctor who specialised in family planning (FP) and women’s health too. During that time she achieved her DFSRH and LOC for coils and implants and has since become a FP trainer. As a partner in a largertraining practice, she developed a weekly FP clinic and trained other doctors. Dr Jenkins worked with the local sexual health clinic in addition to her GP role and has since had roles as a FP trainer
And in her own words:
Initially this was just 2.5hrs a fortnight but over time these hours increased and I was able to reduce my core GP hours to accommodateThe more I’ve trained and worked in family planning the more specialist skills I’ve mastered mainly through practice and experience rather than exams and qualifications. I became known in Milton Keynes as an expert in my field and was then approached to lecture and teach local GPs and nurses. I secured a bid with my practice to run a community gynae clinic working alongside a local consultant - pushing my skills to another level. Looking back at my career, it’s made up of three key components, GP, women’s health and teaching/training. I value them all equally and like the diversity this brings to my working life. I recently resigned from partnership and plan to work more in both the MK and Northampton FP clinics with some GP locum sessions.
