Dr Zoe Boyatzis joined the team at Grand Pacific Health Centre - Nowra in August 2015 for a period of six months as part of her GP training.
Zoe was the first registrar and set a high benchmark for others to follow.
We wish Zoe all the best for the future and hope to attract her back to the practice on a permanent basis in the future once she completes her training in 2017.
Here's what Zoe had to say about her time at Grand Pacific Health Centre - Nowra:
"I completed my GPT2 term at Grand Pacific Health (GPH) Centre - Nowra in 2015 and cannot recommend it highly enough.
GPH is suitable for registrars at all levels of their training and offers a diverse range of patient presentations. In particular, GPH provides a fantastic opportunity for gaining skills in mental health, as well as paediatrics and chronic disease management.
Dr Richard Griffiths is a very supportive supervisor and dedicated to the training of registrars. He provides formal tutorials each week on an array of topics, which are based upon the Registrars’ learning needs. Dr Griffiths is very approachable and always happy to provide assistance when needed.
The nursing and administrative staff are also very friendly and helpful, which makes for a lovely work environment. GPH also offers a number of allied health services and it was wonderful being able to discuss patients with them and receive advice on patient care.
I’d strongly encourage all registrars to consider GPH as it certainly provides an invaluable training opportunity."
Dr Bronwen Spalding worked at Grand Pacific Health Centre - Nowra for 6 months from February to July 2016 during her GPT3 term.
Dr Spalding enjoyed her time at the practice and helped developed practice policies and procedures.
GP registrar Dr Sinead Callaghan is a UK trained doctor who has been working and living in Nowra for the last year and a half. Prior to that she was working in emergency medicine in Sydney for 3.5 years. She has just completed extended skills training in sexual health.
She is interested in all aspects of general practice and has particular interests in women’s and sexual health, emergency medicine and minor surgery.
Dr. O’Callaghan is joining the practice as part of her final GP training term in August 2016.
