Dr Becky Prince – Expert Private GP in Kent
Dr Becky Prince has worked as a doctor in the NHS for almost 20 years. She has been at the same NHS GP Practice for 13 years and continues to look after patients there part-time, alongside her work at Kent Family Medical. Dr Prince values getting to know her patients well. She always gives time and listens carefully, so she can fully understand their concerns and needs. Dr Becky Prince feels very privileged to have developed a strong relationship with her patients and their families, both in the NHS and the private sector. She values the traditional GP model of continuity of care (seeing the same doctor consistently) and developing individualised treatment plans depending on her patients’ medical needs, their wishes and their beliefs.

Dr Prince also has significant experience in Women’s Health and NHS and Private Menopause Care. She is a passionate advocate for women who are struggling with their hormones and need support to reduce menopause symptoms, choose a HRT that is right for them and reduce the impact that menopause is having on their day-to-day life. She has diplomas from both the Faculty of Reproductive and Sexual Health and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
Dr Becky Prince loves seeing children of all ages, from babies, for their very first baby check, to childhood illness, where parents are worried about their sick child, to teenagers who are struggling with issues such as teenage mental health, teenage period problems, teenage acne and all other conditions. Dr Prince and the team treat all of these concerns Kent Family Medical.
Dr Prince graduated for Cambridge University Medical School in 2004, achieving an undergraduate degree in medical sciences and psychiatry (which included research into perceptual processing in Autism).
