TasOGS' all-female team of experienced Women's Health GPs offers women's health expertise without the same waiting time often required to see a Specialist Gynaecologist. Even if specialist gynaecologist input is needed in your care, our Women's Health GPs can liaise directly with an on-site gynaecologist to begin initial investigations and treatment options.

Dr Emily Ware

Women's Health GP
FRACGP DRANZCOG(Adv) MBBS(Hons) BMedSc

Emily is a General Practitioner (GP) with an Advanced Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Emily has a keen interest in women's health and wellbeing, and enjoys all aspects of holistic women’s healthcare. Emily holds a qualification in obstetric and gynaecology ultrasound, and is able to insert and remove contraceptive IUDs.

Originally from Tasmania, Emily graduated from the University of Tasmania with first class honours. She completed her general practice training in Hobart and was awarded the Gold Medal for the highest GP exam result in Tasmania. 

Prior to her general practice training Emily worked in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the hospital setting in both Hobart and Melbourne. In 2013-2014 Emily and her family moved to Bangladesh to serve in a rural hospital. Here Emily worked on a busy obstetric and gynaecology ward, taking both a clinical and teaching role for this community.  This colourful and confronting adventure gave Emily a deep admiration for women from all cultural backgrounds and provided the wider perspective of how varied life can be for women placed in different parts of the world. This overseas experience brings a deeper understanding of culture, holistic care, and empowerment to Emily’s practice with her patients.

Emily is married with three busy children. She is known for her rather vocal encouragement on the soccer sideline and loves watching her kids have fun in sport. Emily also loves to cook, dance and go camping with her family. Combining these three with her passion for travel is her favourite way to spend family holidays.

Emily is looking forward to meeting you through TasOGS and is delighted to be part of this dynamic women’s health team!
