Dr Sara Yousaf qualified from University of Leicester, England in 2005. She completed her general practice training in Birmingham, her home town yielding experience in medical, surgical and a variety of specialities including Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Psychiatry.
The love for General Practice had arisen early during Sara’s medical journey as the pivotal role of GPs within the lives of patients became apparent. The impact of family, social and lifestyle factors on health and the individual’s well-being could only be addressed through the breadth of General Practice whereby she was able to care for her patients wholly.
As she gained experience, her interest in women’s and antenatal medicine grew and she has taken up the role of GP Advisor to the Antenatal Shared Care Programme helping to shape and guide the delivery of care within the local area. Sara is a keen Educator; she is currently an accredited Medical Student and GP Registrar supervisor, and you may see her providing guidance and teaching to our future generation of doctors.
Areas of Interest: Paediatrics, Women’s Health, Antenatal Care, Sexual Health including contraception and Implanon insertion.
