Dr Angela Bennett - Independent GP


Not currently accepting new patients.

I’m originally from Newcastle and graduated from Newcastle University in 1991. Much of my early working years were in Canberra, initially mainly in Emergency Medicine and Paediatrics. I started General Practice training in Canberra in 2002 with rural training in Bega in 2003. In 2007 I moved back to Newie where I worked at a small family Practice in East Maitland for nine years. Here I learned the value of continuity of care in a small town, and find it very rewarding caring for people and their families over the long term. I can’t pick any particular area of interest – the variety of General Practice is another drawcard for me. The opportunity arose to relocate to the paradise of this area in 2016 and we are now here to stay. I have been working in the area since early 2017. When I’m not at work you’ll find me walking the dogs, queuing at the markets, gardening or in the kitchen trying or inventing new recipes.
