Dr Philip Downing completed a Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery from the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom, in 1987. Additionally, he obtained a Diploma in Obstetrics from the University of Auckland in 1991. His repertoire of skills as a certified doctor in Perth primarily pertains to chronic disease management, mental health, paediatrics, skin cancer surgery, family planning and antenatal care.

He is a caring and compassionate GP in Perth who maintains a maxim of always placing the needs, concerns, and comfort of the patient ahead of his own. Moreover, Dr Downing is affiliated with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. In his spare time, he enjoys kitesurfing and quality time with the family.

I travelled around the world and in 1990 ended up in Perth for the windsurfing. I was young enough for that to be a good enough reason to stay, not that you need a reason to stay in Perth. I now have a beautiful wife and family.  I try to practice what I preach and believe in a healthy work life balance. I still kitesurf, but when it’s not windy I can be found at Perth medical centre as one of the 3 principals. We have a large number of professional men on our books who, speaking as one, are not typically good at seeking healthcare; I consider this a mission to improve these statistics.
