Dr Rosemary Leonard's work as a medical consultant to national television and newspapers makes her one of the UK's best-known doctors. In recognition of her services to healthcare, she was awarded an MBE in the New Year's Honours List, 2004. Rosemary's ability to put across complex health matters without lapsing into medical jargon has led to many appearances on tv and radio. She has been the health adviser on BBC1's Breakfast programme for the past eight years and has appeared on The Wright Stuff, Good Morning and Open House. She has 15 years experience in the print media, working first at the Sun and the Mail. She now writes a weekly health page for the Express and is a regular feature writer for Woman and Home and femail.co.uk. Rosemary also writes a column for the Tesco Healthy Living Magazine and is the GP representative on the Committee on Safety of Medicines, the national body licensing all medicines in the UK. She trained in medicine at Cambridge University and St Thomas's Hospital Medical School, and now combines her demanding media schedule with her work as a partner in a busy practice in south London, where her special interest is in women's health issues. She lives in Dulwich with her two sons.
