Dr Ian Taylor
MBBS, FACRRM, DRANZCOG
Dr Ian Taylor graduated in medicine from UWA in 1980, and after post graduate training at Fremantle Hospital, moved with his wife Diane and their small children to Geraldton to join the GMG in 1984 “for a few years”. Thirty years later, they are still here except the kids have grown up and most of them now live in Perth! In their 30 + years in Geraldton, Ian and Di have seen enormous growth to the town and the Geraldton Medical Group, and are proud to call themselves country folks, and in particular, Geraldtonians! Dr Taylor is a Fellow of the Australian College of Remote and Rural Medicine and holds a Diploma from the Royal Australian and NZ College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. In June 2019, Ian delivered his last baby and has now officially retired from Obstetrics. His special interests in medicine include anaesthetics, aged care and palliative care. Over the years, Ian has been actively involved in the Geraldton Community, and has been a member of the Rotary Club of Geraldton Greenough for over twenty years and a past president. Ian is Chairman of the Midwest GP Network and the Geraldton Hospital Medical Advisory Committee. He has spent some time as an actor and director at Theatre 8, and is a very keen photographer. Grandparenthood has added a new dimension to Ian and Di’s lives, necessitating frequent trips to Perth! They are passionate Fremantle Dockers members, very obvious from the purple décor and paraphernalia in Ian’s office! He is still hanging out for that elusive premiership…! GO DOCKERS!
