Federation Clinic congratulates Dr Jessica Madden on achieving Fellowship as a General Practitioner. The Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) is a specialist general practice qualification accredited by the Australian Medical Council. The Fellowship is an important recognition denoting safe, specialised, high-quality general practice care and is widely recognised internationally.

Jess is one of many GP Registrars who has completed their training at Federation Clinic over numerous years. We are delighted that Jess will be staying on as part of the Federation Clinic team. In addition to her general medicine and general practice qualifications (BMedSci, MBBS Hons, FRACGP), Jess has also completed her Diploma of Child Health through Westmead Children’s Hospital, mental health skills training, and additional training in psychological trauma. Jess has a particular interest in the area of adolescent health.

For further information, or to book an appointment, please speak with your doctor or to one of our reception team.


In an emergency please call '000'.

Every effort is made to keep appointments running to time, however, due to the unpredictable nature of our work this is not always possible. Patients are encouraged to contact us prior to an appointment to check that the schedule is running to time.

Please give thought to the amount of time your appointment may require. If there are multiple or complex issues that need discussion, please let reception know when booking your appointment so that sufficient time can be allocated with the doctor.
