Dr Liam Cavanagh is a local GP and the father of Leanna Cavanagh. He is currently engaged to Bernice Blackstock.


After becoming concerned for her unborn child in January 2014, Priya Sharma saw Dr Cavanagh following her body continually rejecting food. Dr Cavanagh told her that her baby was fine, but he was concerned for her health. He tried to give Priya the number for a support group but Priya refused to take it.

Later in January, Val Pollard called Dr Cavanagh out to Pollard's Barn to examine Eric Pollard who she was concerned had contracted HIV. The doctor examined Eric and came to the conclusion that Eric had flu.

In October, Lisa Dingle visits regarding her breathing. Dr Cavanagh refers her for more tests at the chest clinic immediately. He prescribes her a GTN spray.   

December 2014 saw Dr Cavanagh providing advice to Lisa's daughter Belle Dingle regarding her mental health. He suggests counselling but Belle remains defiant and refuses to speak to anyone. 

Liam was put on the judging panel for the Hotten Retail Awards and David Metcalfe tried sucking up to Liam, desperate to win the award. Maya and Liam had marital problems and Maya instigated an affair with David. Liam found out and declared he wanted to divorce Maya. Liam developed a hatred for David and took pleasure in telling him that his estranged wife Tracy Metcalfe had aborted their baby - infuriating Tracy who threatened to report him for breaking patient confidentiality.

Liam decided to sell their house, throwing Maya onto the street as the house was in Liam's name. Liam moved in temporarily with a friend until their house was ready, which Liam's daughter Leanna was not happy about. He began an affair with beautician Bernice Blackstock. Liam encouraged Bernice to break up with her boyfriend Daz Spencer so they could stop sneaking around, but Bernice was reluctant to as Daz relied on her and she didn't want to hurt his feelings.

He proposed to Bernice in July 2019 (during the Wild West Brawl), and Bernice accepted. They are due to get married at some point.
