Dr Louisa Hope

MBBS, BSc DCH, FRACGP, DRANZCOG, Dip Pall Med

I am a GP of 25 years’ experience. I have worked at the Mostyn Street Clinic since 1994. I want to provide patient centred care that is thorough and caring.  I want to work with my patients to optimise their health through education and conversation and provide evidence-based treatment. I particularly enjoy seeing children and pregnant women and want to support women’s contraceptive choices and sexual health. I feel very strongly about the importance of providing good palliative care for people at the end of life.

When I am not seeing patients I am walking in the bush, walking our dog, seeing friends, learning Spanish, still playing cello badly and trying to find time to finish a good book.

Dr Gavin Rowland

MBBS , FRACGP, DRANZCOG

Graduate of the University of Sydney, Dr Rowland’s special interests include mental health, geriatrics and sports medicine.

Dr Rowland joined the Mostyn Street Clinic in 1999. His first book “Mind Beyond Matter” was published in 2015, introducing his theories of how non-material self can explain the phenomenon of consciousness and complete our understanding of reality. Gavin’s hobbies include gardening, running & the “big questions”.

Dr Veronica Moule

MBBS (Hons), DRACOG, FRACGP, Grad Cert Integrative Medicine

After graduating from Monash Uni, and spending 7 years on the Surfcoast completing my general practice and obstetrics training, we moved to Castlemaine in 1999.

I’m passionate about providing birth experiences that are natural, respectful and empowered, I love the great challenge of labour, the beauty of the first meeting of mother and child, and the wonder of caring for families as they grow. I encourage patients to be active decision makers in their health care choices, and look at illness with a holistic view. I have special interests in women’s and children’s health, pregnancy and childbirth, and work in urgent care and Castlemaine hospital’s acute medical ward.

When not working, I play basketball, guitar, paddle in the kayak, and dance (I’m also known to break into interpretive dance during consults). I love to read, and one day I’ll have time to garden. I’m the mother of 4 sons, we buy our wholefoods in bulk and cook in big pots.

Dr Frances Harkin

MBBS (Hons)

Frankie has most recently been working as a registrar in obstetrics and Gynaecology at Bendigo Health, where she completed an advanced diploma in obstetrics.

Dr Fred Jayawardene

BSc, MB BCh BAO

I am a MCCC Registrar who is passionate about providing excellent patient centred care in regional Victoria as I continue my general practice training. I completed my medical training and internship in Ireland before moving to Victoria in 2017.

Over the last five years I have developed my knowledge and skills in a range of specialties including: medicine, surgery, emergency medicine, anaesthetics, intensive care, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology. In 2020 I completed a six month rotation in the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine and continue to work there as an external Forensic Medical Officer.

I enjoy all aspects of general practice; the best part is empowering patients to manage their health with education and multidisciplinary support. I have an interest in preventative health, men’s health and paediatrics. I have some experience in minor procedures and I am completing a postgraduate certificate in dermatology.

Dr Nick Bredenkamp

MBChB, MRCP UK

I qualified and completed my internship in the United Kingdom and subsequently secured a role as a specialty Doctor in Aged Care and completed a Diploma in General Medicine. Since moving to Australia in 2013 I have taken posts in General and Emergency Medicine in order to take on General Practice training.

I spent my first two terms as a GP Registrar at Springs Medical in Daylesford where I was responsible for a varied patient demographic, dealing with anything from acute medical care to chronic disease with a strong and ongoing interest in preventative and men’s health.

Dr Saba Fatima

I worked as a Registrar trainee at Eastern Health where I completed rotations in Emergency Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Haemotology and Oncology, Vascular Surgery and Orthopaedics. I have a particular interest in Obstetrics and would like to participate in Shared Care programs in my career.

I have a desire to not only treat disease but to also maintain health and quality of life for my patients. I am a firm believer in the importance of health promotion through public education.
