Welcome Dr Julia Fortes

Don Medical Clinic welcomes locum doctor

Dr Julia Fortes

MBBS, BMedSci, DipPaed, FRACGP

during the month of January 2016.

Dr Fortes grew up (mostly) in the UK and went to medical school in Newcastle upon Tyne. She worked north of London for a year before (somewhat on a whim) deciding to try her luck as a doctor in Australia and buying a one way ticket there. Luckily for her, she fell in love with the country and the surf and decided to stay.

After a stint in Paediatrics at Sydney Children's Hospital, she left to travel the country for a while as a locum emergency doctor before moving to the North Coast of NSW and deciding to train there as a GP. She continues to love to see kids as patients, but enjoys the variety of General Practice, and has newfound interest in Womens' Health and preventative medicine.

Now she is on the road again but stopping in for a while in Devonport as a locum as she loves Tasmania is excited to spend some more time there.

When she is not working, Julia loves to travel, surf and ride her bike. In Tassie, she can also be found hiking in the magnificent National Parks.

Join us in welcoming Dr Julia to our team.
