Dr Jane moved to Melbourne to be closer to family. She initially trained as a naturopath but was dissatisfied with the limitations of naturopathy, so she decided as a mature age student to retrain into Medicine and then, to specialise in General Practice.

She worked for some years in a large General Practice in Armidale, Northern New South Wales. Most recently, she has been doing locums in a large number of locations in Rural and Remote parts of Queensland.

She is an extremely capable and accomplished general practitioner. Dr Jane is offering an extensive range of after hours appointments. Book online via our home page. She will be offering an extensive range of after hours appointments for busy people who find 9am – 5pm appointments inconvenient.

We are delighted to welcome her to our team.
