We have just received the sad news that Margaret Upsdell died peacefully on 11 June 2022. The funeral took place on 21 July.

Margaret was a founder member of the Society and was appointed Honorary Secretary in 1993, working closely with Pat Patterson, the then Director of the British Menopause Society. Margaret retired as Deputy Director in 2006, returning to run BMS ‘Roadshows’ until February 2008. She was then made an Honorary Life Member of the Society.

Margaret studied medicine at the University of Liverpool, qualifying in 1965. She married Roger in 1964 and they had two daughters, Alexandra and Elizabeth. She worked as a GP in the Weaver Vale Practice in Runcorn from 1979 until 1997 and was very proud that she, a working-class girl, had become a Doctor.  If you wish to write to the family, Please contact the office for an address.
