About

 Anne is a highly experienced Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, having spent 17 years as a senior consultant at a major acute NHS Trust, following an undergraduate degree from Cambridge University and postgraduate medical training in the South East. She practices at KIMS Hospital in Kent and number 25 Harley Street and is also regularly involved in teaching, training and lecturing at both regional and national level in her speciality.

 
She is passionate about women’s health issues, particularly menopause and HRT, which is now a key health agenda following the publication of the NICE Guidelines in 2015. She feels there is a great need to expand the existing service to ensure that all women are able to access quality care, not merely based on their ability to pay for private care or a postcode lottery. She has enormous experience in this particular field having carried out four years’ postgraduate research into the menopause and HRT, PMS and post-natal depression, studying with Professor John Studd, who is the pre-eminent world expert in the field. This was followed by several decades of clinical practice during which she established one of the largest NHS Menopause Clinics in the South East, treating many hundreds of women every year. She now practices exclusively in the private sector where she continues to run busy menopause clinics in both Kent and London. She is a British Menopause Society Accredited specialist, a recognition which is applied to only 120or so  consultants in the UK recognising the higher level training, expertise and ongoing clinical workload which this group of specialist undertake.
 
 
 
Anne believes in offering her patients the full spectrum of treatments which can help manage the peri-menopause and menopause, including complementary therapies such as herbal medicines. She has worked closely with a medical herbalist colleague in Kent for the last 15 years: this collaboration has been highly successful and forms an integral part of Anne’s clinical practice and educational seminars. Anne was a strong proponent of herbal medicine long before the publication of more recent studies which have shown the significant benefits that such treatments can offer menopausal women. She believes that the value of complementary therapies such as herbal medicine is greatly under-recognised by many GP's and gynaecologists.
 
 
 
She is heavily involved in all aspects of education in this field and has organised numerous training and educational days for a variety of employers, including Fire and Rescue and Police Services in Kent, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Cambridge. These workshops have been very well received and an ongoing educational programme is planned during 2018 and 2019.  She is also expanding this programme into the university sector and has lectured at the Kent and Medway University campuses. This is in addition to her extensive education track record teaching and training throughout Kent and In London, to fellow gynaecologists, GP's and Practice Nurses, which continues on a regular basis. 
 
 
She is also a medical advisor to BRCA Kent , one of the largest support groups for BRCA patients in the UK, which provides advice to women in the East and West Kent. Along with the BRCA Kent team, Anne runs annual multi-disciplinary education and updates study days for BRCA carriers and medical practitioners throughout Kent and the surrounding areas. 
 
 
In addition to her clinical work, Anne has an extensive medico-legal practice: her interest in this area began as a result of her experience as an NHS Consultant lead for Obstetric Risk. She finds this a sobering aspect of her timetables and feels it is vital that ongoing training, education and support is offered to the next generation of doctors and midwives in her speciality with the aim of consistently improving the quality of care. In keeping with her interest in education and appraisal, Anne lectures to lawyers and barristers as part of their update training and is a regular presenter at the highly acclaimed 7 Bedford Row "Skeleton Series" lectures.
 
Anne had published widely in the medical literature including peer-reviews journals such as the BMJ, The Lancet and New England Journal of Medicine. 
Her articles and advice have also featured in the mainstream media including The Guardian, Daily Mail, The Times and Sunday Times and in various women's magazines including Red, Womens Journal and Good Housekeeping. Throughout her career she has been involved in the broadcast media as well, having appeared on LBC, Radio 4, This morning, Radio Kent and more recently, on the LBC Medical hour where she discusses the menopause and HRT with Beverly Turner also on Chanel Fives's The Wright stuff discussing premature menopause.

Anne takes a careful approach to HRT which has given me confidence to actually start using it with the trust that it will be managed carefully to suit me rather than a one size fits all approach. Anne is also open to tailor made approaches that are not available via the NHS. So far so very good.

I found Dr Henderson to be extremely professional. I had concerns relating to the menopause, and during my appointment, she was through and made sure she had all my relevant history and information. She explained the options to me clearly and was encouraging. She wrote a comprehensive letter to me after my appointment, summarising what had been discussed and what course of action had been agreed. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Henderson for any menopause concerns.

After having my complaint for such along time and just given tablets or told to get on with it. It was a lovely change to go to Kims and especially to see a consultant like Miss Henderson who first words were not get on with it. The whole team just put me at ease, and finally there was going to be light at the end of a very long tunnel.

Miss Henderson is clearly very knowledgeable in the filed of HRT. I cannot recommend her enough, she has literally changed my life. After having some dreadful experiences with mail gynaecologists re HRT she is a breath of fresh air. Miss Henderson explains very clearly and in as much detail as I ask for her rational for her recommendations.

My private medical insurance arranged my appointment by chance with Dr Anne Henderson but I couldn't be happier with the service I have received. Talking to a female gynecologist has also been an added bonus. I have felt understood and her up-to-date knowledge is evident and reassuring. My operation went really well and I would highly recommend any lady seeking support with gynecological issues to contact Dr Anne Henderson.
