Find a Specialist

The lists below provide contact details for IPM specialists.  All IPM trained specialists are doctors who have worked in areas such as general practice in which patients often present with worries about sexual difficulties. As concerns about physical problems often co-exist with emotional difficulties these doctors are well placed to talk through these worries and examine the patient, if this is appropriate.

The list will explain whether the doctors work privately or on the NHS, and how patients may be referred.  If you prefer, you may ask your GP to make the initial contact for you. It is not necessary for both partners to attend the appointment, however both are welcome to do so if they wish.
