Dr Marlon Radcliffe
As a general paediatrician, Dr Marlon Radcliffe manages the health of children, including physical, behaviour, and mental health issues. This includes the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases.
Dr Radcliffe was drawn to study medicine by a desire to help others and to see happy, healthy children, in happy healthy families, in happy healthy communities, in a happy healthy world! While still working towards this goal, he is also inspiring the next generation of paediatricians to do the same, having spent time as a staff member of various universities throughout his career, and now as a Senior Clinical Lecturer with the University of Queensland.
Dr Radcliffe completed his Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery in 1982 and attained a Diploma in Child Health in 1990, and a Fellowship in Paediatrics – all in South Africa. He worked in various hospitals there, as a general paediatrician and in neonatal intensive care.
He spent 10 years in New Zealand working in hospitals as a general paediatrician prior to his move to Australia in 2006, having attained his Australasian Fellowship in Paediatrics (FRACP) in 2005. His first appointment in Australia was as a general paediatrician in Kalgoorlie, where he spent valuable time learning about Aboriginal culture. He joined Redcliffe and Caboolture Hospitals as a general paediatrician later in 2006 and worked as Clinical Director of the paediatrics department at Redcliffe Hospital from 2012 to 2018. He now shares his time between Redcliffe Hospital and Paeds in a Pod.
Being a parent to three children and grandparent to two adds to Dr Radcliffe’s ability to support families as their children develop and grow.
