Rebecca started her professional career after studying medicine at the University of Leeds, completing foundation training in Leeds and Dewsbury. She then travelled halfway across the globe to work in New Zealand in obstetrics and gynaecology. Rebecca then completed her GP training in Harrogate in 2014 before moving back to her home town of Sheffield where she joined our university.

Her main area of interest is around addressing inequalities in sexual and reproductive health provision in primary care. Rebecca completed her MD in 2022, which explored this topic in relation to general practice. She started her NIHR Clinical Lectureship post in 2023 and has focused on various areas of sexual and reproductive health including contraception access and experience of under-represented populations, menopause care and HIV in primary care. Rebecca is also interested in primary care research around endometriosis and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
