Dr Richie Austerberry

MBBS, MRes (Neuroscience)

Medical training

I undertook my undergraduate training in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the north east of the UK. During this time I also undertook a Masters of Research degree. Following 2 years working as a doctor in Yorkshire, UK, I moved to Perth. In Perth, I have worked in a variety of medical and surgical specialities. In recent years, after founding Night Doctor I have focused my energies on improving care provided to patients in their homes in the after hours period.

Areas of special interest

Urgent care Paediatrics Geriatrics Medical technology

Work outside of Night Doctor

I am a software developer and founder of a software company which builds healthcare software applications.

Interests outside of medicine

Music - listening, performance and composition Playing tennis

Why a home visit doctor?

By managing patients in their home environment, I believe I am able to better understand my patient and their health and provide better holistic care. I particularly enjoy reassuring parents who are concerned about their child’s health after hours and keeping the majority of them from having to attend the Emergency Department.
