Doctors on leave – locum arrangements

Those lucky doctors who can take their leave outside of school holidays have made some travel plans. Dr Cara will be away from 8 May – 15 June. Dr Vanessa is away from 16 May – 13 June. Dr Patti will be away for a week or so in June. This leaves a few gaps, but fear not – we have made arrangements to cover this period.

Dr Beth Oliver is joining us again for the month of May. She will be working on Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays. Some of our patients have already met Beth and have given us great feedback about her care. She will hand over any patients that need follow up to their regular doctor. We hope to have Beth back again later in the year.

We are also pleased to welcome Dr Shereena from Monday 8 May. She will be working 3 days a week over the next few months. Shereena has been a doctor for the past decade, and has worked as a GP in the inner west for many years. She enjoys the diversity of General Practice, but has particular interest in Paediatrics, Women’s Health and preventative health care. She holds a Diploma in Child Health and is an Antenatal Shared Care GP. Shereena’s other job is at Tresillian Family Care Centres supporting mothers of children aged 0-3. She also holds a Diploma in Dermatology and  undertakes skin checks and basic skin cancer excisions.

You might also see one of our other doctors while your usual doctor is away. We will organise follow up with your regular doctor on their return if there are ongoing issues.
