A Day in the Life Series: Dr Sarah Gleeson - Rural Medicine GP

Dr Sarah Gleeson grew up 50km east of Moree on a cattle and cropping property and has called Goondiwindi home since 2011. She completed her GP and procedural training in regional and rural areas on either side of the QLD/NSW border. After fellowship, she made the somewhat dubious (and blessed) decision of having 3 wild boys in 3 years, and is constantly adjusting to seek the ideal work/life balance. 

She is a senior GP and practice principal at Goondiwindi Medical Centre and VMO (Obstetrics and Emergency) at Goondiwindi Hospital.  She provides an outreach service to Boggabilla every Tuesday and is passionate about trying to close the gap for Indigenous patients.  She is a co-founder of Family HQ (a family health App) and released their App to the market in October 2020 with her sister Liz. Sarah has a part-time position with the UQ RCS as an Academic Clinician and facilitates the twice yearly teaching weeks in Goondiwindi. 

Her husband thinks she’s an angry redhead, but she will maintain she is just passionate (about a lot of things), which is coupled with a distaste for ineffective or inefficient bureaucracy.    Outside of work you will find Sarah outdoors with her family, gardening, cycling, running, reading, enjoying a glass of wine, chasing her kids around, tending to the growing menagerie of animals at home, or listening to humorous podcasts.
