Linda’s field is General Paediatrics and she provides a broad range of paediatric services including developmental issues and complex medical issues. She has at least two years of experience in neonatology and loves working in this area. Linda also has experience in neurology and metabolic medicine, as well as a year of experience at the Child Development Unit in Keperra and in the area of child safety.

She refers when appropriate and is comfortable liaising with allied health, schools and other specialists in order to maximise the care of each child.
Teaching medical students, continuing her own professional education and working closely with colleagues are insightful and rewarding responsibilities to Linda.

Linda has done numerous presentations on paediatrics and neonatal topics.
