Fiona is a rural generalist working in the emergency department and short stay unit at the Mersey Community Hospital. She has extensive medical experience from general practice (in Tasmania and the Hebridean islands of Scotland) to emergency to paediatric intensive care, and in recent years has become deeply involved in the provision of palliative care for those attending the emergency department with terminal illnesses.

 

Driven by the need to offer better options in end of life care and move it away from the intensive medical environment she decided it was time to actually do something substantial by establishing a hospice and education centre, not only to provide care but to spread skills to all parts of the community.

 

In her spare time Fiona is a practising potter and fosters difficult and antisocial cats and kittens for Just Cats Tasmania.
