Qualifications and experience
Dr Jonathan Bigwood is an experienced doctor with a background in a variety of specialities and general practice. Dr Bigwood has holistic philosophy in treating his patients and in recent years, he has developed a strong focus on functional and nutritional medicine, which recognises that health problems are often complex and requires detailed investigation of the underlying causes.
Originally from the UK, Dr Bigwood completed his medical degree at St George’s Hospital Medical School in London. He worked in a variety of specialities in his early medical career including gastroenterology, endocrinology, psychiatry and surgery. He undertook his General Practice training in Brighton, UK, gaining further experience in areas including emergency medicine, obstetrics and ENT surgery, and was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners in the UK in 2017. He moved with his family to Perth in 2018 and was granted Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of GPs (RACGP) in Australia.
His interest has always been in supporting patients with long term health conditions, working with them to address all aspects of their health and wellbeing. Throughout his training, he has continued to develop his knowledge and is currently undertaking speciality training with the Australia College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM).
He has worked as a GP in Perth since 2018 and has developed a strong understanding of the Australian medical system. Although Dr Bigwood has fellowship with RACGP, he practices as an Integrative Medicine Doctor at Remede which means that while patients cannot receive a Medicare rebate for their consultations, they can be referred for testing and specialist referral through Medicare. Dr Bigwood’s consultations are much longer than standard GP consultations, allowing him to take the time to be exceptionally thorough to listen to his patient’s issues and then fully investigate & treat the underlying cause of their health concerns.
