DR ELLIE HEATH
MRCGP. NHS liaison.
Ellie is a GP in Edinburgh and has recently joined ECY as a volunteer to help develop their NHS outreach work. Clinically, she has a special interest in women’s health, and is a diplomate of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health.
She started practising yoga six years ago in an attempt to combat the stresses of working as a junior doctor in the NHS. Her yoga practice has been increasingly valuable to her as she has progressed through her career and she completed her 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in 2017 with Mudra Yoga.
As a doctor, Ellie is passionate about holistic health and recognises the wide-ranging potential of yoga as a tool in healthcare, to promote physical, mental and social wellbeing. She interested in exploring ways to make yoga more accessible to different patient groups, as well as promoting self-care and workplace wellbeing amongst NHS staff.
