Stratford Medical Centre has welcomed a new doctor to the team – Dr. Jenny Chandler.
Dr Jenny is a registrar and will be completing her specialist training with us over the next year.
She has more than 10 years of paediatric experience since qualifying as a doctor. She has been working around Cape York Peninsular and moved to Cairns to complete her Specialist GP training.
Dr Chandler was born and raised in Scotland and completed her medical degree there in 2006.
Since then she has worked in Scotland, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia.
She says her passion is children’s health and she has spent more than 5 years specialising in hospital and community paediatrics before entering general practice. She has a National Certificate in Sexual and Reproductive Health.
She enjoys all areas of general practice and says it is an honour to treat the whole family through illness and health.
Outside of work, Dr Chandler loves walking her rescue dog, camping and travelling.
She is mum to two little boys, Louie, 3 and Arthur who recently turned 1, and she is married to another doctor.
