Dr Katie Cathrow is a caring and highly experienced GP.
Originally having studied psychology at Newcastle University, she switched to medicine and graduated from Edinburgh Medical School in 2004. She then spent a further six months focusing on obstetrics and gynaecology which is now one of her specialist areas.
Having successfully completed a diploma in child health, Katie adds more expertise to the very demanding area of children’s health care.
Katie has trained with the family planning service in the Borders and Sandyford Clinic, in Glasgow, gaining her DFSRH (Diplomate Assessment of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare). This includes contraceptive coil and implant fitting and removal which, she now, also offers at YourGP.
As well as her DFSRH, Katie has a wide range of other qualifications, including a diploma from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and a diploma in geriatric medicine from the Royal College of Physicians in London.
However, due to Katie’s keenness to learn new skills and increasing her patient care ability, she is currently adding to her qualifications by studying a masters degree in Practical Dermatology with Cardiff University.
In addition to her passion for working as GP, in Edinburgh and the Borders, Katie loves nothing more than family time or a good gym class with some chill time at Yoga.
“When Lyn booked me with Dr McFarlane and said ‘what he doesn’t know about sexual health isn’t worth knowing’ she was right. Thorough assessment, quick test and immediate treatment all in a relaxed, professional manner – Excellent!”View more testimonials
