Dr Andrea Kelly

MBBS Dip Child Health FRACGP

I am a local graduate who after training at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital/ Princess Margaret Hospital/ Joondalup Health Campus, decided that general practice was my calling. I attained my fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2004 after training throughout regional Western Australia, and since then I have practiced in both metropolitan and rural locations in WA and Queensland.

I enjoy the variety of general practice. Whilst I have particular interests in children's health, women's health, general and preventative medicine and aged care, I enjoy all facets of general practice.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family - my 2 children, husband and dog keep me running!
