Dr Kate Russell is pleased to have returned to The Wesley Hospital after the birth of her third child after starting at The Wesley in 2015.
Dr Russell is a General Paediatrician with an interest in child development and infant health. She has worked in various hospitals both in Australia and the Pacific.
Dr Russell obtained her undergraduate Bachelor of Science and her Bachelor of Medicine degrees from the University of Queensland. Dr Russell also completed the majority of her Paediatric training in Queensland at the Royal Children’s Hospital, with periods spent in Western Australia and New South Wales hospitals.
Whilst in Western Australia, Dr Russell spent 6 months in a Child Development Unit and 6 months with the neurology team at The Princess Margaret Hospital. She has also worked with foster children and their carers in her training, both with the Child Advocacy Service at the Royal Children’s and at the Paediatric Outpatient clinic at The Tweed Hospital.
Dr Russell is an experienced clinician having independently run clinics throughout her career. Although she has an interest in infant health, her ability to communicate with and talk to children of all ages puts her in a superior position to treat difficult cases including ADHD and developmental delay.
She is a member of The Royal Australasian College of Physicians.
