about-img

I feel very passionately about ladies health and how menopause can effect women physically and emotionally. Do not let menopause and your hormones control your life. With education and treatment you and your families lives will improve.

I really do understand how you feel as I am a menopausal woman and take HRT. I know how the symptoms of menopause impact your life on a daily basis.

My Experience

With over 30 years experience as a Registered Nurse.

I am an advocate for women's health especially menopause which is an area I feel very strongly about. I am committed to improving knowledge of the general public and organisations and also the wider health profession.

Since November 2021 Bourne 2 Care is now a recognised service provider and registered manager regulated by the Care Quality Commission – Reg no. 10908439115

Registered Nurse in Emergency Departments

I began my nursing career after qualifying as a Registered Nurse working in Emergency Departments in Birmingham and then the Middle East.

Lead Nurse Isle of Man

When I moved back to the UK I lived in the Isle of Man which is where my career started to progress. Having always been interested in health education I was encouraged to be the lead nurse for Health Education at the hospital. Assisting with the creation and implementation of the Governments Drug and Alcohol policies and being able to support many events around the island. I was asked to speak at Nurse Practitioner conferences, on local radio and to write articles for Government magazines.

Finalist in the Nursing Times Awards

The pinnacle of my nursing career was as a finalist in the Nursing Times Awards for the Promotion of Health in the Community and also completing my Nurse Practitioner degree before returning to England.

Founded Bourne2Care

I started Bourne2Care in 2013 working as a nurse practitioner in urgent care and providing health education. As the awareness of menopause has increased I now provide private consultations to women all over the UK and Europe and educate health professionals on menopause and HRT across the UK and Europe. Most recently I have been working with the NHS to educate staff about the importance of menopause and the impact on peoples lives and have also started working with Holland & Barrett as a consulting Menopause Expert advising them on all aspects of menopause.

What People Say About Me?

Working in partnership with Bourne 2 Care, the Trust has launched a package of support for our staff to understand more about menopause and how this may affect them. Diane’s regular menopause sessions are important to all our staff and have helped them to understand their symptoms, give confidence by talking openly and positively about the menopause and provide reassurance with advice and support that is available.

Ann Hart, Wellbeing Officer, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust

I cannot recommend Diane’s wealth of knowledge and expertise enough to help educate women around the topic of menopause in the workplace. Diane presents to staff who attend the monthly sessions and takes time to provide reliable and accurate resources both evidence based and opinion focussed. This has empowered those who have joined the webinars and has made such an impact in a short space of time. This topic is only going to grow and become a stronger staff offer moving forward into a post-covid workplace. Thank you to Diane for all that you continue to do to strengthen our female workforce to become happier, healthier and listened to!

Tammy Partidge-Smith - Business Development Manager, Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Diane’s Menopause webinars are expert led, very informative and include dispelling some of the myths that surround the menopause. Diane also provides you with up to date evidence based information. The webinars have given me the confidence to be more open about the menopause symptoms I am experiencing and also the knowledge to ask health professionals the right questions to ensure I get the best possible treatment. I wish these had been available to me 13 years ago.

Black Country Trust

I would like to say a huge thank you for your presentations and discussions during our Livewell day. Your openness and positivity were an inspiration to us all and I know that many people in the audience really appreciated your honest approach at a personal level. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from all three seminars.

Roche Healthcare

Diane has been such a god send. I made contact with her through recommendation from my best friend. I have suffered with menopausal symptoms and Diane’s advice and guidance has changed my life for the better

Michelle O'Reilly

I was one of the fortunate ladies who attended an evening meeting held by Diane from bourne2care, where she gave invaluable advice on the minefield that is the menopause. Along with a very sympathetic ear she also gave us up to date medical advice. A pleasure to meet you Diane hope to attend another meeting soon.

Vicky Cummins

Diane is a wealth of knowledge on all things menopausal – really helpful and explains things really clearly. Would definitely recommend Diane to anyone.

Sally Chambers

After suffering for a few years with menopausal symptoms trying to convince myself that I could cope I saw Diane on Instagram and contacted her. It was great to talk to someone who really listens and understands how I feel. Reassuring to know it’s not just me. Diane is always there to answer any questions. Since I have been on HRT I feel I have my life back - wish I’d seen her earlier.

Emma Aged 55

The menopause session that Diane delivered for our client LexisNexis Risk Solutions was extremely insightful and well presented, she is clearly very knowledgeable on the subject and left no stone unturned. She has been an absolute pleasure to work with, always accommodating to our client’s needs, and I look forward to working with her more in the future.

Zoe

We’ve just had a talk from Diane, which was absolutely fantastic - it was pitched deep and complicated enough to learn, but personable enough to make sense. She slanted her talk to our requirements and the whole evening ran without a hitch! Thank you so much Diane, from a group of podiatrists, professionally and personally!
