Presenter Dr Jill Pritchard trained Somerville College Oxford and King’s College Hospital London. Trained initially in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and obtained MRCOG then switched to Genito-urinary Medicine just as HIV was appearing. Over many years have developed an interest in managing genital pain and genital dermatology and now work full time within the Gynaecology Department at St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, Surrey. I can still see male patients but under auspices of Dermatology.

Presenter Mrs Paula Chaplin qualified as a SRN and then as a Midwife in Cape Town, South Africa where she had enormous experience including work in remote areas with little support. Coming to the UK worked in Intensive Care and later moved to Genito-urinary Medicine and HIV in St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey , Surrey. Has become very interested in helping women who have genital pain , providing a complementary service to Jill Pritchard and in particular working to ensure they understand their anatomy and can make the best of their treatment. Recently Paula has been asked to become part of the CEMIG team at St Peter’s which manages patients with endometriosis and she plans to find good ways to integrate pain management using her skills with various pain presentations. Paula is a passionate advocate for her patients.
