Dr Nathan Smalley
MBChB, FRACP, FCICM
Nathan grew up in London and Aberdeen, and studied medicine at the University of Glasgow. He worked as a trainee in Edinburgh and throughout the United Kingdom before moving to Australia in 2004. He completed his paediatric and intensive care training in Melbourne and has since held paediatric and paediatric intensive care consultant positions in Townsville, Brisbane, Mount Isa & Perth. Nathan started South West Paediatrics in September, 2015. He continues to work (very) part time in the Paediatric Intensive Care unit at Perth Children's Hospital, but much prefers life in the country than in the big city.
Nathan lives in Quedjinup, and enjoys playing the guitar, eating the odd sausage roll from Tas's Bakery, and playing with his sons and his dog, Elfie, at the beach (even though she eats his reticulation).
Dr Aggie Judkins
MBBS FRACP GradDip (Infant & Parent Mental Health)
Aggie studied medicine at UWA in Perth. After completing her intern year at Royal Perth Hospital she ran away to work in Darwin for two years, which is where she commenced her paediatric training. She completed her training as a General Paediatrician at Princess Margaret Hospital where she worked from 2004 - 2018 and recently relocated to Perth Children’s Hospital. Aggie is passionate about parent and child attachment and mental health and completed a Graduate Diploma in Parent and Infant Mental Health at the University of Melbourne in 2013. She runs the Unsettled Baby Clinic at PCH and also works at the Elizabeth Clinic in Perth.
Aggie is Mum to Noah and Maya, and fur baby Ferris, a Dalmatian. They have travelled ‘down south’ every summer and winter for many years and it has always been her dream to split her time between Perth and the South West.
When not otherwise occupied Aggie likes to run, read books, as well as cook (and eat food cooked by others) and spend time with her family and friends.

BSc, PG Dip Child & Adolescent Health, PG Cert Clinical Nursing (Paediatric Intensive Care)
Carly studied nursing at Curtin University and has worked at Princess Margaret Hospital as a Clinical Nurse in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit for 12 years (where she still does occasional casual shifts). She has done 3 years of postgraduate study in Child and Adolescent Health and Paediatric Intensive Care Nursing. Her parents are both accountants and she inherited their love of maths and organisation. Carly is a Type 1 Diabetic, so she has first hand understanding of how chronic illness can affect a person's life.
Carly grew up in Perth but spent all of her holidays through her childhood and adolescence in Yallingup and Dunsborough, and always knew she wanted to live in the south west when she "grew up". Carly also lives in Quedjinup with Nathan and Elfie (pictured) and enjoys sitting out on the back deck listening to the leaves rustle or by the fire with a good book.
Holly is a born and bred Busselton girl, and an experienced medical receptionist, who many of you may recognise from her time at Busselton Medical Practice & Bunbury Eye Doctors. Holly enjoys triathlons, snacks and puppies (especially her own little dachshund puppy, Bindi).
