Campaspe News - - NEWS -

EL­MORE Med­i­cal Prac­tice has al­ways been known for its in­cred­i­ble ser­vice to the com­mu­nity.

And now one of its own has been na­tion­ally recog­nised.

Kathy Tuo­hey, El­more Med­i­cal Prac­tice prac­tice man­ager, re­cently trav­elled to Dar­win to ac­cept an hon­orary mem­ber­ship award to the Aus­tralian Col­lege of Ru­ral and Re­mote Medicine (ACRRM), for pro­vid­ing sig­nif­i­cant ser­vice to ru­ral and re­mote medicine in the com­mu­nity of El­more.

Nom­i­nated by Dr Patrick Nzegwu and Dr Ju­liana Quay, both GPs at El­more Med­i­cal Prac­tice, Kathy was in­cred­i­bly hum­bled to re­ceive the award.

“My pas­sion and com­mit­ment to pro­mot­ing and main­tain­ing the health and well­be­ing of my lo­cal com­mu­nity stems from my life­time of hav­ing lived, worked, raised a fam­ily and been part of a close-knit com­mu­nity in ru­ral Vic­to­ria,’’ she said as part of her ac­cep­tance speech.

‘‘The com­mu­nity have al­ways made me feel well-ac­cepted and re­spected in my po­si­tion.

“Work­ing with El­more Med­i­cal Prac­tice has been an in­cred­i­ble jour­ney.

‘‘Ev­ery day is both in­spir­ing and re­ward­ing for ev­ery­one who works there.

‘‘Our goal is to en­sure that we pro­vide the best pos­si­ble health out­comes for our pa­tients.”
