She grew up in Swansea, South Wales. She qualified in Medicine from St George's Hospital Medical School, London in 1996. She began working at the University of Birmingham's Department of Primary Care in 2000, while she was a GP registrar. She later gained a PhD.
She has clinical duties one day a week at the Cloisters Medical Practice in Lichfield, Staffordshire, where she is a GP principal. In 2008 she set up a private service, offering Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccines.
In 2012 she became the RCGP's first female honorary treasurer. During her first eighteen months as treasurer the RCGP had a dispute with a construction firm and successfully defended a legal challenge about examinations run by the college brought by the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO). She had also spoken in favour of acupuncture, after published evidence led to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommending it as an option for the treatment of low back pain. She is a Governor at the Birmingham Women's NHS Foundation Trust, with a term of office that runs until October 2017.
In 2016, she was one of four candidates that stood to succeed Maureen Baker as the Chair of the RCGP Council. In July, the college announced that Stokes-Lampard had been elected as the next RCGP chair, and would begin this appointment in November 2016. She became Chair of the Royal College of GPs on 19 November 2016.
In September 2016, she was named at the top of a list of powerful GPs compiled by Pulse magazine.
