He also worked at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead in the General Medical departments and was involved in the management of newborns in the special care nursery. Jeremy’s experience in Women’s health was obtained at the Maternity Unit at Hornsby Hospital where he trained as an Obstetric Registrar, as part of the diploma of Obstetric and Gynaecology. His work there involved running an antenatal clinic, attending deliveries, managing early term miscarriages, working in the gynaecology clinic and performing surgical procedures in the operating theatre.
Jeremy went on to work as a registrar in Respiratory Medicine where he gained considerable experience in the management of asthma, chronic lung disease and lung cancer. Later, he worked as a clinical research fellow where he was investigating the use of inhaled insulin for diabetic patients. He also spent time on medical projects in indigenous Australian communities, Thailand and China.
With this broad clinical experience, Jeremy chose to specialise in General Practice and was awarded a fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2005. Since then Jeremy has worked as a GP in the Hills district and later opened Norwest General Practice in Bella Vista with his colleague Dr Aaron Tan.
