National Capital Medical Specialists, NCMS was established by Dr Ian Prosser, Dr Paul Craft and Professor Paul Gatenby in 1998 not long after the opening of National Capital Private Hospital, NCPH in Canberra. The chemotherapy and treatment area of NCPH was set up at the same time to provide services to our patients.

The practice has grown progressively over the years, under the stewardship of our inaugural practice manager Lindsay Gatenby, who was succeeded in 2014 by Raelene Surtees. The current directors of NCMS are Professor Desmond Yip and  Dr Nicole Gorddard .
