“I am dedicated to assisting and advocating for rural doctors and rural communities to ensure all in Australia have the same health equity.”

Dr Marion Dover is a rural generalist with a busy workload that sees her sharing her time as a Emergency Medicine and Obstetrics GP and Visiting Medical Officer across 
Bellingen, Dorrigo, Gloucester, Taree, Armidale, Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie Hospitals.

Marion is a mum to two gorgeous children and her passion for improving rural birthing services was fuelled by the need for Marion to travel over 120 kilometres to give birth to her second child.

As a young doctor based in New South Wales, Marion brings a new perspective to the discussions around the Rural Doctors Foundation Board table.
