Dr Carolyn Beaumont, General practitioner

FRACGP, MD, DipChildHealth, BMedSci(Dist), BMus(Hons), GradDipEd

Carolyn is a general practitioner with Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. She is an Australian authorized prescriber of nicotine. She founded the Australian prescription service MedicalNicotine in 2020. Her innovative telehealth service SmokerHealth has recently been founded in 2023.

She is a strong advocate for healthier alternatives to smoking, and she has helped thousands of Australian ex-smokers remain smoke free. Her service began in 2020, as she developed more awareness and understanding of the plight of chronic smokers – those who desperately want to stop smoking and have tried many traditional options without success.

At the same time, Carolyn recognizes that the best option is for people to never become addicted to tobacco or nicotine in the first place. She has created a school presentation, in which the dangers of blackmarket vaping and tobacco addiction in the young are discussed. 

She has recently been recognized by her local council, having been nominated for the 2023 local council ‘Woman of the year award’ for her work in tobacco harm advocacy, support for ex-smokers and school education.

Carolyn has been published in national newspapers, interviewed on radio, co-authored medical journal articles and is a regular speaker at international tobacco harm reduction conferences and forums. She is a member of the JAPAC tobacco harm reduction regional expert group, bringing together field experts from the Asia-Pacific region to educate and influence global tobacco harm reduction policies.

Please note: These prescriptions are not available for anyone under 18. However she is more than happy to discuss other smoking cessation options for this age group.
