Dr Sarah Spencer is a fully qualified and insured GP based in Sussex, UK. (GMC number 6122860)
She completed her basic medical training at the University of London in 2005, and has a wealth of experience in general practice, minor surgery and medical injections. She has further qualifications in women’s health and holds a diploma from the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London. She is also working towards becoming a British Menopause Society (BMS) menopause specialist.
Dr Spencer completed her foundation and advanced aesthetics training at the world renowned DermaMedical in London, and is always striving to continue her learning with regular updates to her practice.
She is fully insured under the specialist cosmetic insurer, Hamilton Fraser and the Medical Protection Society.
One of Dr Spencer’s main passions is dermatology, so she is delighted to be able to combine this with her interest in menopausal care to bring Spencer Aesthetics and Medical to life.
Due to NHS regulations Dr Spencer regretfully cannot see any patients who are registered at New Pond Row GP Surgery, Lancing, West Sussex.
“In my NHS work I was frustrated at not being able to give the main thing patients were looking for from their doctor – time. The current demand for appointments is so overwhelming, I felt like I was firefighting constantly and this was leading to unsatisfying experiences for everyone. I wanted to get back to the roots of why I became a doctor – to really help people and in the way that they want.”
Being a GP since 2010 has led me to have a rounded approach to healthcare, being aware that many issues require management from different angles. Often just popping a pill won’t solve the problem and the menopause is just an example of this.
Equally, your face is also not just skin deep. As we age, we also lose volume from the deeper structures such as from the superficial and deep compartments of the face and bone loss. Often the term 'aesthetics' has come to be synonymous with injectables, but I also believe that the integrity and structure of the skin surface should also be addressed as part of a complete package of facial assessment.
When you come to Spencer Aesthetics and Medical, you are not just buying a product or prescription, you are also gaining full benefit from my years of experience, skill and clinical judgement.
