Welcome Dr Celia Worth
We welcome Dr Celia Worth to the Mead Medical team.
Dr Worth is a mother of two young children and completed her medical degree at the University of Queensland in 2008. She then she went on to complete five years of speciality training in obstetrics and gynaecology at predominantly Liverpool Hospital, a busy tertiary centre in Sydney.
In 2017 she made the difficult decision to follow her husband back to his home town in Perth and refocus her priorities to work life balance and being a mother.
Since that time she has been working as a career medical officer in obstetrics and gynaecology at Joondalup Hospital.
For now, she is working towards completing the general practitioner component of becoming a GP obstetrician but hopes to complete her specialist training in the future once her children are at school.
Celia is passionate about every aspect of women’s health and providing women with equitable access to all available resources, information and health care providers.
Her current aspirations include having another child, providing care to women with a holistic approach and locuming in remote areas of Western Australia to bridge the gap in health care provision for women.

Goodbye Dr Helen Wilcox
We’re sad to advise that Dr Helen Wilcox has left Mead. She and her husband have made the decision to move their family back to the UK. Helen spent 6 years with us and will be sorely missed by patients, staff and fellow Doctors alike. We wish Helen and her family the best of luck for the next phase of their lives.
