MBChB and FRACGP
Travel Medicine and Sports Injuries
I received my degree at the University of Cape Town and then immigrated to Australia in 1995 where I completed my general practice training and fellowship, as well as a diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I am married with 2 daughters and in my free time enjoy travelling and playing a variety of sports.

BMed and FRACGP
Obstetrics, Psychiatry and Palliative Care
I went to Newcastle University then worked in the Northern Territory and PNG before returning to the Manning Valley. I have a small beef farm and am active in local Choral groups. My particular medical interests are in complex psychiatry and dementia, and palliative care. I also do quite a lot of minor surgery for skin cancers. I am experienced in GP obstetrics, and take on patients of all age groups with any problems.

Paediatrics and Geriatrics
I was born in Switzerland but immigrated to Australia when I was 6 with my family. I have worked at WFHC since 2003 and live locally with my family. My main interests outside of medicine are outdoor activities especially mountain biking, walking and spending time in and around water.

Palliative care and Geriatrics
I’m a long term resident of the Manning and have a beef farm locally. I’ve been at WFHC since 2002 and have a broad range of skills and interests especially in Palliative Care and Obstetrics. I also do implanon insertion and removal. I’ve had 12 months off dealing with breast cancer but am back again seeing any of my previous regular patients.
Dr. Callum Walker
I grew up in Newcastle before heading off to medical school at the University of New England in Armidale. It was here I developed a love for rural medicine. Recently, I have been in Muswellbrook working in both the GP clinic and in the emergency department. I have been working towards fellowship with the RACGP and I look forward to continuing this journey in Wingham. Outside of work, I enjoy swimming and anything with a ball!
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
“I would strongly recommend Wingham Family Health Clinic to any GP Registrar. I have been part of the practice from GPT1 through to Fellowship and beyond, which is a statement in itself. Throughout my training I had access to friendly, accessible and knowledgeable supervisors supported by excellent nursing and administrative staff. The scope of exposure for exam preparation was ideal and the variety of work allows for exposure to procedural skills in a supportive environment. The level of experience of the senior staff is extensive and advice is easily accessible at any stage of your training. A wonderful, community clinic that is well-respected and supportive of Registrar learning on both a personal and professional level. ” – Dr Nicole Jackson
“I have worked at WFHC as a first term registrar and as a GP. The supervision and training I received was second to none. There is ample opportunity to learn and practice procedural skills. The demographic in Wingham offers GPs and Registrars the opportunity to practice everything from antenatal care to palliative care with so much in between. The staff at WFHC are the most professional, caring and fun team to work with. Anyone who works here can expect to be busy, challenged and well supported.” – Dr Trisha Fowler
