Dr Alison Richardson is a Consultant and RCOG accredited Subspecialist in Reproductive Medicine and Surgery. She graduated from the University of Bristol in 2005 and completed her training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the Southwest before completing her subspecialty training in Reproductive Medicine and Surgery in Leeds at the end of 2019. Ally then spent 18 months working as a Consultant in Leicester before joining CARE in September 2021. She is delighted to be working in an organisation that prioritises quality care of those seeking fertility advice and treatment.
Although interested in all aspects of subfertility and assisted conception, Ally has a particular interest in ovarian reserve, premature ovarian insufficiency, and fertility preservation as well as recurrent implantation failure and miscarriage.
Ally aims to provide evidence-based care to her patients and, as such, is very interested in research. In addition to her PhD, which was awarded by the University of Nottingham in 2017 and focussed on minimising diagnostic uncertainties in early pregnancy, she has over 20 publications in peer-reviewed journals, written two book chapters and been part of an RCOG guideline development group for a national evidence-based guideline. To date, Ally has given 8 international and 25 national presentations and won numerous prizes for these.
She also has a Certificate in Medical Education and is actively involved in teaching, which she thoroughly enjoys. Ally currently sits on the Training Subcommittee of the British Fertility Society and the Examinations Subcommittee of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
