Dr Sophie Nicholls is a Specialty Doctor in SRH in Southampton. She qualified from Birmingham in 2004 and initially trained as a GP. During her training she completed both her DRCOG and DFSRH before gaining her FSRH Letters of Competence in both IUCD and Implants. Subsequently she worked as both a salaried GP and speciality doctor in SRH.
She also undertook her FSRH SSM in Vasectomy before working in Australia for 18 months providing vasectomy and contraception services for several clinics. She was approached by Family Planning New South Wales to help set up their vasectomy service and trained another clinician to continue providing this service after she returned to the UK.
Since 2019 she has worked solely in SRH where she sees a mixture of GUM and contraception patients alongside her weekly Vasectomy operating list. Sophie is keen to progress her career in this speciality and she would like to help other SAS doctors get the most out of their jobs in her role as FSRH SAS lead.
