Meet the team
Our Doctors have a wealth of knowledge and experience in General Practice and provide a service that is patient focused, individualised and considers the holistic needs of each patient. We frequently teach medical students and we encourage you to participate, contributing to how future GPs will practice. Your permission will be sought by reception prior to a consultation with a medical student to ensure you’re happy to have them present.

I am a UK trained GP who came to Australia in 1993 for an outback adventure working with the Royal Flying Doctor Service in Kalgoorlie. A 1 year contract soon became 12 years in Kalgoorlie.

I offer all GP services and have procedural skills which include, the fitting of contraceptive devices, such as Implanon and intrauterine devices (IUD’s) , skin cancer surveillance and removal of lesions.
