Dr Helen M Boon
MB BS DCH DRCOG MRCGP
Dr Helen Boon was born and brought up in Liverpool before moving to London to study medicine at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. Following five years of training there she spent six months as a House Physician in Macclesfield, Cheshire and six months as a House Surgeon in Crawley, Surrey.
Very much in need for a change of scene by then, she then went on to spend a year in New Zealand working in a hospital in Wanganui. This was accompanied by some exciting travel before returning to the U.K. to spend six months doing Accident & Emergency medicine in Cheshire.
She went on to complete her GP training during the course of which she met and married Richard and has since had several children.
Her General Practice experience has been gained in Stratford-upon-Avon, Basingstoke, and now Redditch. She joined the Dow Surgery as a Retainer part-time doctor, and went on to become a partner a year later.
In spite of vowing never to do any more examinations following her Under-Graduate training, she has passed the Diploma in Child Health, the diploma in Obstetrics and Gynae and the Royal College General Practice exam.
Her interests include travelling in France on holiday and to this end she attends regular night classes to try and improve her French. She is a keen walker, enjoys visiting National Trust properties – foot and mouth disease permitting – and she runs and swims to keep fit, or to escape from her children
