I'm Emma McBride, the Federal Member for Dobell and I'm proud to call the Central Coast home.
I grew up in Wyong, went to high school in Tuggerah, and love our way of life.
On weekends, you'll find me on patrol with Toowoon Bay SLSC, volunteering with Long Jetty Landcare, swimming at the Ocean Baths, or bushwalking in Wyrrabalong National Park.
Before entering Parliament, I worked as a pharmacist for almost 20 years, including ten years at Wyong Hospital.
I understand the importance of quality, affordable healthcare close to home and I want to make sure our community gets the care it needs.
In 2019, I was given additional responsibilities as the Shadow Assistant Minister for Mental Health and Carers.
Then, following the 2022 election, I was sworn in as the new Assistant Minister for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention and the Assistant Minister for Rural and Regional Health.
I am determined to use these roles to improve healthcare for all Australians, especially those living in rural and regional communities.
My job is to represent you. If I can be of any assistance, or if you have news about a community event or group you'd like to share, please contact my office.
