Gail is keen that women are empowered by knowledge around their health. We know that for both gynaecological and breast cancer, there's a much-improved chance of recovery if it's detected at an early stage. For this reason, it's vital that women are familiar with and monitor their bodies; and are aware of what symptoms and signs to be alert for and how to get them checked out.

Gail is a GP with a special interest and expertise in all areas of women's health. Gail will be discussing 'Myths, Misconceptions and Monitoring of your Gynae and Breast Health' She will guide us through what is normal/abnormal in the way of symptoms and what red flag symptoms to look out for.
