We are excited about 2023. The crisis around General Practice is getting more attention in the press and hopefully this will be a turning point for the better. The beauty of primary care is to be able to look after a patient holistically and hopefully prevent many health problems. It has been an absolute joy to have our registrars, Dr. Lisa Hong and Dr. Natasha Nointin with us. We feel they could experience the excitement and love we all have for our profession here at Eleanor Clinic.
Is is a true privilege to be a General Practitioner. Sharing the hard and sad moments with you, and also the joy. Sometimes there’s a lot of things we can do and organise helpful interventions. At other times, it is being there with you in difficult circumstances. Having build up such an excellent referral net work with allied health practitioners, psychologists and psychologists often allows us to get our patients seen by the right people in short time. A big Thank You to all our wonderful network partners for the excellent collaboration last year.
Dr Natasha will be continuing her training as a Specialist General Practitioner in Moonee Ponds and will hopefully return to Eleanor Clinic after she concludes her training.
Dr. Lisa has finished her training and is expecting her second baby – so double congratulations are in order! We are delighted that she will return to Eleanor Clinic at the end of the year as a Fellow of the Australian College of GPs.
Let 2023 be the beginning of a great year for all of you and the people you care about, our team, General Practice in Australia overall and excellent health care. Thank you to all of you for your support and palpable excitement for our little local clinic that could, right here in our Inner West.
