Dr Hannah Short, GP Specialist in Menopause, OII and Premenstrual Disorders

About Me

Hello, my name is Dr Hannah Short and I’m a GP Specialist in Menopause, Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI) and Premenstrual Disorders. I am dedicated to providing inclusive, holistic and individualised care.

I graduated from the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine in 2009, after first studying Human Sciences at the University of Oxford. Prior to focussing my practice exclusively on hormonal health, I worked in the NHS for fourteen years. I qualified as a GP in 2016, and have also undertaken further training in Gynaecology, Sexual Health, Psychiatry, Breast Health, and Lifestyle Medicine.

I am a member of The British Menopause Society (BMS), The International Menopause Society (IMS) and The International Association for Premenstrual Disorders (IAPMD). I qualified as a BMS-accredited Menopause Specialist in 2018 and hold the Advanced Certificate in Menopause Care. I am also certified as a practitioner by the International Society of Gynaecological Endocrinology (ISGE).

My specialist areas include POI, Early Menopause, Medical & Surgical Menopause, PMS/PME/PMDD and Lifestyle Medicine. I have a long-standing interest in how dietary factors – and the gut microbiota – affect hormonal health, and I am a member of Plant-Based Health Professionals UK and The British Society of Lifestyle Medicine. I also feel strongly about planetary health and social justice.

I have personal experience of premature surgical menopause (surgical POI), and this fuels my passion to improve the lives of others similarly affected. I am co-author of The Complete Guide to POI and Early Menopause (Sheldon Press, 2022).

I live in Norwich, with my husband and Maine Coon cat, and love nature and being outdoors. I enjoy yoga, hiking and running, and have recently discovered the joy of bouldering! I am also a book lover, and drink copious amounts of tea.

I am delighted to be joining the Menopause Care team, led by Dr Naomi Potter, in Spring 2024 and will be seeing patients both in-person and online.
