Felicity can’t imagine being anything but a doctor. And once she became one, she realised that what she needed most, was to be actively involved – not just handing out prescriptions, on the sidelines – she wanted to help her patients develop a healthy lifestyle.
That need was most apparent, while working in a hospital – because she wasn’t satisfied with sending people home and not knowing how they recovered. She now ensures her patients are well informed – understanding their medications, diagnosis and treatment plan – so they can play an active, ongoing role in their own health care. And although she enjoys all areas of her work, her particular interests lie in paediatrics, women’s health and minor surgical procedures.
