He enjoys Skin Cancer Medicine in addition to Aged Care and Childhood Diseases and Illness.

Dr Chay Davies: MB ChB
Originally from the UK, Dr Davies came to Australia 5 years ago and has spent the better part of 4 years working in emergency departments up and down the east coast, which makes him very adept at dealing with any accident or emergency related situations.
In 2019, Chay said he decided to "see the light and come over to the land of General Practice", and it's been the best decision he has made.
On his days off he can be found at the gym or at the beach with a book in one hand and a coffee in the other, or trying not to fall off one of his many boards.... surf, wake, skate or snow....
Chay says he loves to "ride it sideways at speed!"
* Dr Chay Davies is a GP Registrar and is under the supervision of Dr Dalgliesh
