Medical Centre Doctor is Appointed

Published on Wednesday, 14 August 2019 at 7:00:00 AM


Ahead of the departure of Dr. Yoshi Inoue in June 2019, a Sub-Committee comprising Cr Sue Falconer, Cr Stuart Boekeman, Mrs Sian Whitfield and Dr Peter Barrett (WACHS) were appointed with the express task of recruiting a new General Practitioner to the Wongan Hills Medical Facility.

The Shire of Wongan-Ballidu is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Ajit Kumar Chaurasia who will move to Wongan Hills within the next four to six weeks.

Having completed his medical sciences studies and internship in his home country of Nepal, Dr Chaurasia brings extensive emergency room, intensive care, paediatrics, OB-GYN and general medical experience to the role.  

On settling in Australia in 2009, Dr Chaurasia practiced as a Resident Medical Officer and Registrar in several hospitals including Redcliffe Hospital (QLD), St John of God Hospital (Subiaco), Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital, Fremantle Hospital, Bunbury Regional Hospital and Royal Perth Hospital. 

In seeking a more community and family-focused lifestyle, Dr Chaurasia’s most recent appointments, first to Plantagenet Medical Practice (Mt Barker) and then more recently to St Luke’s family practice (Kojonup) reflects his focus towards a career in rural general practice.

Please join us in welcoming Dr Chaurasia and his family to the Wongan-Ballidu community.  We wish him every success in his practice and trust his tenure with us extends well into the future.

For further queries or to book an appointment ahead of Dr Chaurasia’s arrival, please contact the Wongan Hills Medical Centre on 9671 1000 between 8:00 am and 1:00 pm Monday to Friday.
