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.
