Dr Steven Johnston
Senior Medical Officer/General Practice Anaesthetist
Weipa Integrated Health Service
I love being a general practice anaesthetist (GPA). It’s great to be able to support the local obstetrics service. Becoming a GPA was definitely one of the best decisions I ever made – I love the work, I love the place.
Dr Katherine Lynch
Senior Medical Officer
There is so much opportunity out here. You can do more here than what you can do in the city. You come out here, you will make a difference to people's lives. You will gain skills that you would never have got the opportunity to gain and you will get to do so much. You'll experience a community that is really, truly grateful for having you here.
Dr David Walker
Executive Director of Medial Services and General Practitioner,
I came to the area in 2006 and loved the town, fell in love with the people, made lots of friends, and ended up staying. Rural medicine is what you make of it and I’ve been really lucky to get opportunities here that I probably wouldn’t get anywhere else. I get to practice at the top of scope and look after patients for as long as I can.
