Dr Indu Vetrivel
Dr Indu Vetrivel completed her medical degree (MBBS) in her home country India. She emigrated to England immediately after completing her MBBS where she completed her post-graduate qualifications. She became a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) and worked extensively in general practice. She also gained a Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (DRCOG) as well as a Diploma in Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (DFSRH). She is trained in performing subcutaneous implants and intrauterine devices.
Dr Vetrivel’s special interests are family planning, women’s health and sexual health. She feels privileged to serve the local community as a GP. Moreover, being a female, she understands the importance of a safe and supportive environment for women to discuss their problems with confidence. Dr Vetrivel strongly believes that Central West Women’s Health Centre provides this nurturing environment.
Dr Vetrivel is very excited and really look forward to serving the local community to the best of her ability.
