Dr Nina Sandford
Dr Nina is one of our General Practitioners at SmartClinics Walton Bridge. Dr Nina studied at Flinders University and spent three years training in Darwin, followed by a twelve month stint at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. Her specialties include emergency health and sexual health.
Dr Nina recently moved to Brisbane with her partner and they are looking to settle down in Queensland and buy a home. Her hobbies include bushwalking, camping and knitting.
This is my first year in general practice as a Registrar.
I studied at Flinders University for both post-graduate and undergraduate degrees. I hold a Bachelor of Clinical Science and a Doctor of Medicine (MD) qualification. I have also earned my Emergency Medicine Certificate through the Australian College of Emergency Medicine.
I am a Registrar with the RACGP and do training through GPTQ.
I am able to empower my patients to make good health choices, advocate for them when they need it, and help them across all aspects of their health care needs. I like the variability of practice, and seeing patients throughout a whole lifetime of healthcare.
Never forget a hat! I always have one in my car, just in case.
I believe that making sure I am addressing my patients’ needs is critical to being a good GP.
I have three tips for the flu season: Don’t go to work if you’re sick, always wash your hands, and look after yourself.
I always encourage my patients to talk about whatever is on their minds.
I am new to General Practice, and I am sure that I have a lot to look forward to.
A Registrar is a doctor who is training towards full Fellowship with a College. In my case, I am aiming to be a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
