Dr Jamie Coutts graduated from the University of Aberdeen with commendation in 1999. He initially worked at a variety of hospitals across the UK before spending 18 months travelling and working across Australia. It was during these travels and his time in Perth that he fell in love with South West WA.
He returned to Scotland to complete his GP training and gained MRCGP with distinction in 2004. He was a partner in a rural General Practice on the edge of the Scottish Highlands for 6 years.
Dr Coutts continued to feel drawn towards WA and joined Busselton Medical Practice in 2014. He is an experienced GP who enjoys all aspects of Family Medicine. He is passionate about the importance of continuity of care and thoroughly enjoys providing a comprehensive, holistic service to his patients. He has completed additional training in Mental Health including Alcohol Misuse.
He has extensive clinical interests which include chronic disease management (particularly diabetes and ischaemic heart disease) and the management of obesity-related issues.
Outside of work, Dr Coutts enjoys spending time with his family in the Great Australian Outdoors. He keeps fit by riding his road bike as often as he can and enjoys long walks with his dog.
He is an avid football (soccer) fan and is a long-suffering supporter of the Scotland National Team. When not plotting Scotland’s rise to World Football Domination, he will often be found coaching Junior soccer.
