Dr Evie Rank

Evelyn Rank prefers to be called Dr Evie, as she is called Evelyn only when she is in trouble.
She graduated from University of Queensland in 2011, and trained mainly in Ipswich Hospital and Gold Coast University Hospital.
She really enjoys people, loves food and is secretly a little bit of a geek. Her boys drag her out running, which she does reluctantly only so that she can have that little bit more chocolate after dinner.
Her favourite patients (if she is really honest) are those with multiple chronic medical conditions, the elderly and youth who don’t quite fit the box.
Evie spent 3 years at Ipswich Hospital back in 2012 and is thrilled to be back in the area.

Dr Amanda Illingworth


I have been in Australia for over 30 years and a Grange Road doctor since 1991 (does that make me a local yet?).

I was born in South Africa and grew up in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia), which was exciting and adventurous.

My husband and I emigrated to Australia looking for a better future for our family – and found it in Ipswich.

General Practice has been the most rewarding and exciting career for me. I am passionate about maintaining excellence in primary health care and so I am involved in local medical politics and medical education to do my ‘bit’ to continually improve local health care.

I have 2 awesome grown-up off-spring who are true Aussies.

I love to de-stress with making artworks and playing classical guitar.

Dr Scott Kirton


Scott Kirton was raised in Dapto, NSW.

He grew up almost within view (and definitely within smell) of Lake Illawarra, and spent an idyllic childhood sailing and cycling the countryside. He got badly sunburnt every summer on the beautiful beaches of Wollongong.

Scott moved north to Brisbane with his family in 1984 where he attended Aspley State High, and the University of Queensland where he met his wife Lisa. They have two children and two puppies.

Scott joined Grange Road Medical in 1996 and gradually came to realise that Ipswich is far better than Brisbane, so he moved here.

His special interests are skin cancer detection and surgery, and general skin conditions

Dr Tu Khai Huynh


My name is Tu (t-oo) Huynh (Hwən).

I was born in Vietnam, and came with my parents to Australia as refugees in 1979.

I have lived in Brisbane most of my life. Went to Brisbane State High School and graduated from UQ in 1998 with my MBBS and spent 4 years at Ipswich General Hospital. I had experience in Emergency medicine, ICU, and Ophthalmology (eyes) apart from the normal rotations in hospital, before deciding on General Practice.

I have an interest in paediatrics (kids), eye problems, men’s health and skin checks, and perform minor procedures like removing skin cancers.

I have started the Ipswich Travel Clinic to provide travel advice and health needs (vaccines, travel kits, yellow fever certificates) for those travelling overseas..

I have a lovely supportive wife and two kids who are growing up fast.

I have been at Grange Road now for a few years and hope that we can continue to provide excellent service to the community with our collective knowledge and experience in our doctors.
