Dr Roleen van der Merwe joined the team at Life Fertility Clinic in 2022 and consults at Bowen Hills and North Lakes. Roleen has over 20 years experience as a GP, with a special interest in women’s health. She is working within the Bulk Bill Program at Life Fertility Clinic.
Roleen obtained her medical degree in South Africa, and later emigrated to Australia. She initially worked at a Women’s Health and Mother Baby Hub, focussing on pregnancy care, postnatal care and the health of baby. In 2014 Roleen completed her fellowship training in general practice (RACGP). Since then, Roleen has worked in a busy GP practice and continued with her interest in paediatrics and women’s health. She is also qualified in the insertion and removal of Mirenas / IUDs.
She has additional mental health care training in focussed psychological strategies and therefore shows compassion with good counselling skills. Patients find Roleen warm, caring, and approachable.
In her spare time she enjoys going for a run and eagerly participates in fundraising walks.
