Jane Simpson grew up in rural North Yorkshire. She then trained as a nurse at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, in the 1980s. Becoming a Registered General Nurse.
She went on to become a district nursing sister and while visiting her patients, her passion for urinary and pelvic floor problems began. She soon became a Continence Nurse Specialist in the NHS. Here she was treating patients with incontinence and seeing their joy on getting better. She helped run one of the English National Board 978 courses (the promotion of continence and the management of incontinence), which included lecturing and training other healthcare professionals. The idea was to teach nurses and doctors about how to help cure or deal better with their patient’s incontinence problems, therefore reaching the wider community.
For the last 22 years Jane has had her own private practice at the London Clinic in Harley Street, where she treats men and women, young and old, with all forms of incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction. For example stress incontinence, overactive bladder and urge incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, constipation and aspects of the menopause and childbirth relating to the pelvic floor.
She is a member of The Pelvic Floor Society, The Association for Continence Advice, The International Continence Society, The British Association of Urological Nurses and The Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland.
Jane is writing her first book and she is going to call it The Pelvic Floor Bible. She is very keen to spread the word on a global scale that pelvic floor dysfunction is very curable and does not need to be life changing or life limiting.
She is planning to start a pelvic floor revolution!
Jane is happily married with a wonderful stepson; she is a passionate cook and keen gardener. She is involved in raising money both for prostate and bowel cancer and has run the London marathon and walked Hadrian’s Wall. She also competes in other shorter events.
