VAUGHAN MCLACHLAN

I was welcomed to the Gladstone Road Medical Centre late 2017 and am here 5 days a week.
I am an Endorsed Enrolled Nurse with a background in Aged Care and am currently undertaking a Bachelor of Nursing at QUT. I have special interest in Sexual health, LGBTQI+ health, HIV and Transgender health. I previously sat on the board of directors for Queensland Positive People (QPP) for 2 years.


I aim to provide patient comfort by establishing rapport to ensure you have a friendly and
personable experience. My primary role is to assess patients prior to seeing the doctor ensuring you are seen to in a timely manner, providing a streamlined approach, attending to your health care needs promptly and initiating appropriate screening.


I strive to remove barriers and stigma surrounding the LGBTQI+ and the HIV positive community to allow for open and honest communication between health providers and patients – with the goal of reaching better outcomes for patients and the greater community.


I look forward to getting to know you and being a part of your healthcare team.
