Mrs Catherine Hayden

Catherine Hayden joined the specialist reproductive medicine consultant team at LCRM and Genesis in November 2010. She is a graduate of the University of Leeds (Bachelor of Medicine & Surgery 1993, Doctorate of Medicine 2001). Her research focussed on polycystic ovary syndrome- both its basic science and clinical therapy, including preliminary work on the use of metformin and its impact on weight control and ovulatory dysfunction.

She continued her post-graduate training in Yorkshire, with an overseas fellowship at Flinders University Hospital, Adelaide, South Australia, working with the late Prof John Kerrin. She successfully completed RCOG-accredited subspecialty training in reproductive medicine & surgery, in Leeds (2009).

She is passionate about patient-centred care and strives to create a collaborative partnership in her management, whilst maintaining an evidence-based foundation through her expertise. Academically, she enjoys teaching and training, conferences and charitable events.

She works full time in reproductive medicine and general / emergency gynaecology for the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. She is married to a general surgeon and specialist in diseases of the upper digestive tract, and they have primary school-aged twin boys. They cherish their family time. She keeps fit by 10km running, tennis playing and skiing. She enjoys interior design and has recently relished the modern renovation of a period home.
