Dr Susanna Unsworth
I trained as an undergraduate at Pembroke College in Cambridge. I completed my clinical medical qualification at the University of Cambridge, School of Clinical Medicine, graduating in 2005.
As a junior doctor I worked in hospitals throughout the Eastern region, before commencing further training in General Practice. In 2010 I achieved Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) and subsequently worked as a GP in practices in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk for over 10 years.
In my NHS roles, I now work as a Specialist in Breast Medicine at Cambridge Breast Unit, at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, supporting women after a breast cancer diagnosis. I also work as a Community Gynaecology Specialist GP in Essex.
During my career I have dedicated time to developing my knowledge of women’s health, achieving diplomas from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (DRCOG) and the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (DFSRH). Furthermore, I have completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Community Gynaecology from the University of Bradford and the Advanced Certificate in Menopause Care from the FSRH, and am registered on the British Menopause Society Register of Menopause Specialists.
In addition to my NHS roles, I started Cambridge Women’s Health: a specialist clinic to provide experienced support for women who are facing challenges with menopause.
Developing a specialist menopause supplement
A patient came to see me at Cambridge Women’s Health to discuss her menopausal symptoms. She had visited a well-being shop and picked supplements that claimed to help women suffering from menopause. She had filled an entire wheelie suitcase and brought it to the appointment. Every bottle claimed to be the best supplement to combat menopausal symptoms.
I looked at the products she had bought; whilst some contained good ingredients that have been shown to help reduce symptoms, they were generally in low quantities that would make little difference even if taken daily. Other bottles contained elements that had no known benefit, or had fillers and unnecessary ingredients.
I began to do my own research and realised I could not find a daily supplement that contained what I regularly recommend to my patients without the unnecessary added extras. So, I decided to develop my own.
I teamed up with expert nutritionist Shona Wilkinson to create the ideal supplement that I feel confident will help women support themselves through their own menopause journey.
