Dr Patricia Ridsdale - Physician (Integrated Medicine)

Dr Patricia Ridsdale MBChB DRCOG MRCGP FFHom Integrated Physician

Dr Patricia Ridsdale has been a general practitioner in the Basingstoke area for 25 years and remains a GP still.  She takes a whole person view of illness and advises on both acute and chronic illness, using a range of integrated, holistic complementary therapies, including homeopathy, acupuncture and nutrition. She is a highly qualified medical homeopath, being a Fellow of the Faculty of Homeopathy and on their specialist register. 

She enjoys helping people to understand and work with their bodies, to work out why they may be experiencing problems and to treat the cause rather than the symptoms.  She may manage cases jointly with other therapists at The Natural Practice and believes passionately in integrated medical care for the benefit of the individual. 

Dr Ridsdale also has an interest in diving and sub-aqua medicine and has completed The Institute of Naval Medical Underwater Course.  She was a founding director of the Hantsdoc out of hours emergency GP organisation for Basingstoke and chairs the Faculty of Homeopathy Members' Committee.  She teaches medical students at the University of Southampton and has contributed to a book on supervision for the medical profession and, together with Dr David Owen, updated Andrew Lockie's Enclyclopaedia of Homeopathy, published by Dorling Kindersley. 

She frequently contributes to homeopathy conferences, both abroad and in the UK. 

Dr Ridsdale sees patients at the Winchester, Basingstoke, Oxford and Bournemouth practices.
