Getting to know you – meet new member David Tickell

Our “getting to know you” segment ensures PREDICT members are aware of new members, their interests and areas of expertise and where they are located.¬† This month we introduce David Tickell from Ballarat Health Services.

“Ballarat Health Services is located 120km west of Melbourne, servicing a catchment area throughout Western Victoria of 250,000. It has 17,000 paediatric ED presentations per year, along with 250 paediatric/adolescent and 30 neonatal separations per month. It is staffed by 8 general paediatricians without dedicated paediatric ED medical staff.

Our research interests are largely smaller scale, clinically relevant projects restricted to those relevant to rural/regional general paediatrics, however we are also generally keen to involve ourselves in relevant larger multicentre studies.”
