Dr Catherine Insley is a GP and a Director of East Sydney Doctors.


Catherine originally trained in London, qualifying in 1988. She continued her GP and public health training in Gosford and the UK . She practiced at the University of Nottingham and also worked in community family planning clinics specialising in IUDs or coils for contraception.

Cath returned to Australia in 1999 and initially worked at the Family Planning clinic in Chatswood  and then the Kirketon Road Clinic in Kings Cross (sexual health and drug and alcohol service).

After a few more years experience in General practice in the Eastern Suburbs Cath joined Gynaecare (Clinic 66) on the North Shore. Over the next 9 years she worked on developing her procedural skills within the family planning arena (IUDs, vasectomies, colposcopies and abortion or termination of pregnancy).  She became the director of this business in 2011 and has recently moved back to the East.

Cath also worked as a coordinator of care for Central Australia Health and RFDS retrievals in remote communities in Central Australia. The majority of this was done over the phone with occasional fly in fly out locums in remote community clinics. 

When she is not at work Cath enjoys time with family and friends, reading contemporary literature, watching films, sometimes cooking, sometimes gardening but always planning her next holiday.
