MB BS (Adel), FRACP
Ordinary member of AMA(SA) Council
Dr Clair Pridmore is a paediatric neurologist, currently employed as a Staff Specialist at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital (WCH). She did her basic training at the WCH and most of her advanced training overseas, at the Hospitals for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, London; the Institute of Child Health, London; and the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto. She feels the clinical and life experience gained working overseas in these centres of excellence, in big cosmopolitan cities, has proved invaluable.
Clair is committed to providing high-quality health services for children and teens in South Australia and has worked hard to improve services for children with neurological disorders. She has a special interest in children and families living with epilepsy and continues to work to improve outcomes for this group of patients.
She is well aware of the inequity existing in the delivery of health services for children in this state and the Northern Territory (NT). Those who live in rural and regional South Australia and NT are clearly disadvantaged, particularly Indigenous children. Clair would value the opportunity to help address this disparity.
Clair has a research interest in the genetics of epilepsy. Her interests outside medicine include music (piano), masters rowing, bushwalking, tennis and bridge.
