Dr Erin Ransley

MBBS FRACP
Paediatrician

Dr Ransley grew up in Tasmania before completing medical school in Western Australia. In 2008, she relocated to Queensland where she completed Paediatrics training at the Royal Children’s Hospital (now closed) and the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.

Dr Ransley has advanced training in neonatology and paediatric rehabilitation, with experience in treatment of neonates and children with complex medical issues including cerebral palsy and brain injuries.

Dr Ransley has developed long-term relationships with many of her patients and their families. She enjoys working with children of all ages, seeing them grow and overcome any hurdles along the way.

Her work with children and infants diagnosed with more complex health issues means she understands that some patients face greater challenges and experience different journeys.

Whatever challenges confront your child as they grow, a multidisciplinary approach can produce the best outcomes. At Paeds in a Pod, our specialists collaborate on treating patients and ensure parents stay informed and can make the best decisions to suit their child’s needs.
