Fiona has particular expertise in all aspects of women's health care, including complex contraception problems. She is able to offer IUD insertions and implanon management. Fiona is keen to provide GP antenatal care and the follow up of newborns through their childhood milestones. She acknowledges the importance of childhood checks and immunisations and encourages all families to have a regular GP. Fiona is involved in training junior doctors following a career in General Practice, as well as selected students from the local medical school, and John Flynn scholarship students. Due to a strong following of long term loyal patients, there may be a delay in obtaining a non-urgent appointment. However, a thorough evaluation and honest opinion with appropriate follow up is offered in all consultations.
