Dr Freda O’Neill
MB BCh BAO NUI, FRACGP, MICGP, DRCOG
Freda obtained her medical degree from University College Dublin in 2008 and completed her specialist GP training in Ireland in 2014. She practised in the fields of general and emergency medicine in both rural and urban hospitals in Ireland before making the switch to general practice. The principal aim of this was to have the opportunity to provide continuity of care to her patients.
Special interests include dermatology, women’s health and preventative healthcare.
Freda made the move from Ireland to Australia in August 2014, & has worked in Hervey Bay, Gladstone, Moruya, Bateman’s Bay and Tweed Emergency Departments, as well as providing GP care in the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and northern NSW areas.
She relishes the opportunity to live close to the beach since moving to Australia, & truly appreciates the wonderful climate and spectacular scenery the local region offers. Outside of work she is a keen clarinettist and has played with the Australian Doctors’ Orchestra and the World Doctors’ Orchestra. She prioritises keeping fit, and goes for daily runs by the ocean.
The practice manager started in January 2019. Brendan has a background in radiation oncology, medical physics and has been in administrative roles for a number of years prior to starting in this role. He likes surfing and sailing so if he is not in he may be across the road at the new Palm Beach artificial reef.
Marina has been working at Health On 21 since April 2019, and enjoys the patient interaction that working on reception brings. As a tea enthusiast she will readily make a good cup of tea while you wait for your appointment. A big perk for Marina is that the practice is just across the road from the beach!
Our Registered Nurse Angelique joined Health On 21 in July 2019. Angelique has a background in remote area/emergency nursing, but has been a practice nurse since 2007. She has extensive knowledge and experience in general practice, and is dedicated to delivering great health care. Angelique is an avid antique furniture collector.
