Dr Samantha Wyton was born and raised in Longford and graduated from the University of Tasmania in 2013. She worked at the Launceston General Hospital prior to starting General Practice training, largely in paediatrics.

Sam achieved Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) in 2020, and completed a Diploma in Child Health in 2017. She became Southern Tasmania’s first NDC accredited practitioner in early 2022.

Sam’s perspective is holistic and person-centered, encompassing all the challenges and joys of raising young children, and she particularly enjoys supporting parents who have concerns about their own body image. She practices weight-inclusive care with a trauma-informed approach. Sam is inclusive of diverse genders and sexualities, and is happy to welcome patients identifying as women at The Bubble Hobart. Sam's goal is to ensure that her patients feel safe accessing healthcare.

Sam has lived experience with breastfeeding difficulties and is passionate about supporting families to achieve their feeding goals. Sam would be happy to work with you for any women’s health concern, but has a particular interest in PCOS management, persistent pelvic pain, perinatal mental health, and post-natal care (including Mums and Bubs).

Sam practises psychological medicine and is a registered provider of focussed psychological strategies at The Bubble Hobart. She is neurodiversity-affirming and uses a variety of approaches including mindfulness, CBT, ACT, and DBT techniques. Sam welcomes referrals from your regular Specialist GP with a GP Mental Health Care Plan.

Sam is also consulting Specialist GP at John Street Medical in Kingston and Tasman Medical Practice in Nubeena. She holds a number of advisory roles including the New Fellows Representative for RACGP Tasmania, national RACGP New Fellows Committee and Readiness National Advisory Group for Domestic Violence Training. Sam enjoys teaching medical students and is a GP Registrar Supervisor. She has been a medical volunteer with Camp Quality for over 10 years and loves attending camp each year.

In her spare time, Sam enjoys fossicking for crabs and rocks with her young son and daughter in their backyard beach. You’ll also see her shuffling along at either park run or weekly run club!
