Place of birth: Allerton, Liverpool, England
Maiden name: Kate Marie Healy
Date of marriage: 1998
Education: Notre Dame Catholic High School, Everton Valley, Liverpool (11-18 years)
former Employment: P/T GP (General Practitioner) in Melton
Kate studied medicine at the University of Dundee, in Scotland. She initially specialised in gynaecology but later changed to become an anaesthetist.
She first met husband Gerry McCann at the Western Infirmary in Glasgow, Scotland.
It is reported that she made the decision to work as a GP because the hours would be more suitable and flexible to arrange around a family.
It was after she returned to the apartment at 10.00pm that Madeleine was discovered missing. Like virtually everything in the case, there has been much debate and denial about what was actually said when she raised the alarm. Common belief is that she shouted 'They've taken her' and this has caused much debate over why she chose those particular words and who 'They' could be.
There are three interviews in the official PJ-Files:
Kate Healey McCann was never interviewed by British Police.
