About Us

At Fremantle Family Doctors we have always aspired to provide all of our doctors and particularly our GP Registrars with excellent support including formal and informal teaching.  We are a busy practice, providing a wide variety of GP services in the Fremantle area, from our two sites - Hilton and Beaconsfield. While working mainly at the Beaconsfield site, there will be opportunities for registrars to have more choice in their work hours over the two practices.

Our collegiate practice is made up from GP's in all stages of their career, including extremely experienced GPs and newly qualified GPs, as well as all stages in between. GP Registrars tell us that they enjoy being able to ask questions and not being made to feel in any way inadequate for doing so. The GP Supervisors take on the formal education sessions, however, others in the practices with areas of expertise are also involved in the education sessions over the time the Registrars are placed with us.

We enjoy the freshness and enthusiasm of the GP Registrars who always question why we do things the way we do, and it keeps us current and aware of improvements possible

We have a dynamic nursing team, the 3 nurses work each day and assist the GPs with any tasks possible including immunisations, diabetic checks, education, dressings and triage.

Philosophy

We are a non-corporate, GP owned family practice.  We strive to provide friendly professional care to all our patients.  We never turn away a sick child.  We use technology and outstaff skillsets to ensure that enhanced primary care is undertaken wherever appropriate.
