Dr. Tamsin Franklin

General Practitioner and Principal of Turn The Corner

I founded Turn The Corner Medical Clinic in 2014, aiming to provide great quality medical care.

I live in Northcote. My kids go to school and Uni here, I walk my dog in the local parks, and I eat and drink at our cafes. I believe being a local GP is truly a privilege – hearing your stories and struggles, and assisting in finding a way to make the most of having the gift of life.

Turn The Corner enables Sanjiwani Public Health Mission in remote Nepal to provide care for the people of the Ghandruk area. Kamala is the local nurse and midwife, caring for pregnant women and delivering their babies in conditions that are hard to comprehend from the comfort of our lives here in Australia. Bishal is the local health assistant, managing the illnesses typical of a rural developing world area. Through our care, Kamala, Bishal, and the rest of the Sanjiwani team are paid a salary, trained and equipped.

My goal is to make a difference – both here and there.

I qualified in Australia and hold a Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
