I am a consultant obstetrician at the Rosie Hospital
Dr Charlotte Patient
FRCOG, MD, PG Cert Med Ed
My current role
I work with the multidisciplinary team within the Rosie Hospital caring for high-risk pregnant women. My particular interest is looking after women with other medical problems such as heart disease and diabetes. I work with colleagues throughout Addenbrooke’s to provide pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and postnatal care for such women.
I also have an interest in education and I am the Head of the Postgraduate School of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the East of England, which means I am responsible for the provision and quality of training throughout this region.
For the last few years I have been fortunate enough to work through Cambridge Global Health Partnerships in a partnership with the National Maternity Hospital in Kampala, Uganda and I have recently been appointed as an associate dean within Health Education East of England with a responsibility for global health and improving the experience of international medical graduates working with the NHS in this area.
I did my undergraduate medical degree in London and completed my early medical training in a variety of regions in the UK before moving to the East of England in 1993 to start training in obstetrics and gynaecology.
I worked in a number of hospitals in the region before being appointed to my consultant post in the Rosie Hospital.
Memberships and accreditations
