About me

Pain control an managing difficult to treat symptoms in patients with cancer, both those undergoing active oncology treatment and those with more advanced disease, form the main part of Dr Amsler's work. A comprehensive review of the patients' physical, emotional and social needs is the most important part of her practice.
She also has a substantial interest in symptom control patients who suffer from chronic illnesses other than cancer, such as Parkinson's Disease and other degenerative neurological conditions, chronic cardiopulmonary conditions such as COPD and heart failure as well as advanced renal failure.
Having studied in Aachen Germany, Dr Amsler came to the UK as a junior doctor and soon decided to specialise in Palliative Care. She trained in symptom control and palliative care in various hospitals and hospices in Cardiff, Oxfordshire, Cambridge and Essex. Dr Amsler was Medical Director at Isabel Hospice in Welwyn Garden City from 2007 until 2018 and now works at Saint Francis Hospice in Havering-atte-Bower, nr Romford, Essex.
