Philosophy Our goal is to provide a practice that operates in a family friendly manner, while dealing with our patients, our community and staff in accordance with our values. We believe that involvement in the community includes a social responsibility. We participate with the community in local activities especially those with a health and well-being focus. From a wider community perspective, we are also committed to ongoing development and training of new doctors, medical students and other allied health students. We wish to be involved with GP registrar training as well as medical students from the ANU. Being involved in training local students will encourage them to stay in our local area once qualified and assist in reducing the critical doctor shortage.
