After qualifying from Birmingham Medical School in 1983, Dr Beaumont worked in several hospitals in the West Midlands before completing her vocational training in General Practice. She has been a general practitioner in Solihull for over 20 years and during that time has had a special interest in complementary medicine, woman’s health and paediatrics.
She has become increasingly aware of the limitations of conventional medicine in the treatment of many chronic diseases and is also concerned about the side effects of some drugs. In 1995 she trained in Oxford, completed a three year course in Homeopathic Medicine and her membership of the Faculty of Homeopathy in Jan 1999. She subsequently gained her Specialist Registration and is now an examiner for the Faculty. During this time she has provided homeopathy within General Practice and now has a thriving homeopathic practice and has continued studying in the UK, Greece and India with internationally renowned homeopaths. In June 2011 she was awarded a Fellowship of the Faculty in recognition of her commitment and contribution to homeopathy.
As a medically trained homeopath, she does not reject conventional medicine but uses the two systems to enable patients to benefit from an integrative approach wherever possible. Dr Beaumont is also a clinical fellow at Bristol Homeopathic Hospital and Academic Director teaching homeopathy to doctors, vets, dentists and nurses. She is married with two sons and a daughter and is familiar with the hustle and bustle of family life!
