Hello my name is Mrs Caroline Overton and I am a consultant gynaecologist. I look after women with general gynaecology problems. I have specialist expertise in gynaecological ultrasound scanning and laparoscopic surgery. I practise a holistic style of medicine and will consider conservative and alternative treatments as well as surgery.
I qualified as a doctor in 1987, specializing in Gynaecology early on in my career. I have been a consultant Gynaecologist since 2000 and moved to Bristol St Michael's University Hospital in 2003. I retired from full-time NHS practice in July 2016, but still support the NHS as an honorary consultant at St Michael's Hospital where I lead research into miscarriage and endometriosis. St Michael's is accredited as an Endometriosis Centre providing excellence in the treatment of endometriosis (accredited centres list).
