As a family GP for 28 years and mother of two daughters, Dr Barshall draws on her extensive experience and knowledge at the Chelsea General Practice. She enjoys all aspects of Family Practice and takes a special interest in adolescent wellbeing, health screening for men & women, and in managing the menopause with 'body identical hormones' - a more modern approach to HRT. Dr Barshall also takes a keen interest in assessing and supporting those with mental health issues including anxiety and depression.
An active member of the IDF (Independent Doctors Federation), she enjoys attending regular postgraduate meetings. Dr Barshall is also a member of the Young Doctors Group of private GP’s who meet monthly and a member of Supervision Group with other GP’s, psychotherapists, psychiatrists and psychologists who meet quarterly.
Dr Barshall refers to consultants from all the leading independent Hospitals in England and has also established strong international links, with an extensive network of contacts in other major cities around the world so that she can facilitate care for patients who travel and work overseas.
