I believe every child deserves comprehensive, quality healthcare starting at the local GP.

I believe every child deserves comprehensive, quality healthcare starting at the local GP.

Children’s health is evolving and the role of the GP is more significant than ever, supporting families on their journey, walking with them, understanding their needs, finding the right pathway. The complexity of children’s needs has expanded beyond simple day to day problems. As we learn more about the effects of a child’s early development and influences, we have come to realise we can do so much to make a difference. We can intervene earlier, we can change the trajectory of that child’s entire life. I consider myself a kids GP and feel my calling is focused in this direction. I work as an ‘everyday GP’, but my interest has become more focused on improving health and mental health outcomes for children and their caregivers. Following graduation from medical school at the University of Notre Dame, Fremantle, I have achieved the FRACGP and completed further studies with the child health diploma. I continue to advise both the RACGP and now also Emerging Minds as part of their course development. I have spoken to a number of organisations on various kids health and mental health topics.
