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.
“Just a massive thank you for being so willing to help us out. I was kept up to date in all email communication between the two clinics which I found very reassuring. I honestly can not emphasize enough how grateful we both are that the clinic was able to help us out with the Zita West fertility tests. We really did not know what we were going to do after the mix up with the blood collection dates due to the 4th of July in America and really thought we would have to give up on these tests so it means a massive amount to us that we have been able to proceed with them because of your willingness to help us out. Thank you again.”View more testimonials
