New Family Doctor Starting Practice!

Dr Paul Shire is a UK trained general practitioner who has recently moved to Victoria looking for a new life experience for his young family. He brings with him a wealth of experience from the world-renowned British National Health System and has excellent skills in all areas of General Practice.

His areas of special interest include diabetes care and men’s health. He holds the Diploma in Child Health and has confidence to manage children and their parents skilfully. He has also worked as a sessional doctor in sexual health and is a specialist in fitting long acting contraceptive methods.

Dr Shire will be working at Pakenham Family Health on a full-time Monday-to-Friday basis. This will greatly help in alleviating the current difficulties that we are experiencing in accommodating the requests for same day appointments from our patients.

We are excited to have such an enthusiastic young doctor join our clinical team and look forward to working with Dr Shire for a long time!
