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 healthcare.
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.
If you’re keen to make an appointment with Dr Katie Cathrow, please be aware she is only available at the clinic one Saturday a month, so advance booking is required.
“It is obvious from the outset that Dr Benade is very experienced in the Occ Health field. Because my employer had referred me to her I expected a bias in their favour. I was completely wrong. Dr Benade was very attentive, thorough and fair. How I feel mattered and she understood my eagerness to recover and remain with my employer in the job I love”View more testimonials
