CV of Dr. Elizabeth Murray


Dr. Elizabeth Murray, a registered specialist radiation oncologist with a special interest in breast cancer, is an oncologist in the Southern Suburbs, focussing exclusively on breast cancer treatment in her clinical practice. She has a private practice in which services include chemo - , hormonal, biological and radiotherapy. Elizabeth practices evidence-based treatment and care of breast cancer patients. She believes that breast cancer patients should be discussed at multidisciplinary clinics or panels and be assessed pre operatively by a specialist surgeon and specialist oncologist.

Elizabeth has  experience in writing expert witness reports and in Oct 2018 2018 attended a Medical Protection Society Workshop in this regard.

March 2020- Elizabeth works from home and keeps to a strict lockdown protocol. She maintains most patients by telephone and sees essential ones in a low COVID risk environment.  Recommended treatment takes COVID risks into account at present. Masks provided
