Dr Chloe Abbott - #Chloeslegacy #MH4Docs

About Chloe

Dr Chloe Abbott was a fourth year doctor in training with aspirations to become an Endocrinologist.

She was a passionate advocate for her medical peers. Prior to entering medicine, Dr Abbott worked as a Podiatrist.

Before this she was an Australian champion swimmer, representing her country at the 2003 World Championships.

Workplace Pressures

Dr Abbott, like many others, felt the significant pressure of her profession. The exhaustive exam preparations in addition to heavy workloads and hours were all sources of pressure.

The Abbott Family

Since Dr Abbott's passing, her family have been strong advocates for improvements in working conditions for junior doctors as well as supporting changes to be made to mandatory reporting.

The ultimate wish is that no other medical professionals are lost to suicide.
