Cowra doctor Louise Baker has been elected to the committee of the Rural Doctors Association of NSW.
Dr Baker was appointed to the committee at the recent annual general meeting of the Association.
Dr Andrew Egan was elected as President of the Association at its recent AGM, replacing outgoing President, Dr Emma Cunningham.
“With the NSW State Election getting closer, it is critically important that the major parties get behind the rural health sector in this state, and guarantee that the funding will be allocated to the next phase of the Pathway to give certainty to the young doctors who want to train as a Rural Generalist and become the rural and remote doctors of the future.” Dr Egan said.
Dr Egan will be supported in his new role by Dr Cunningham, who will remain on the Committee in the Ex-Officio / Past President role; Dr Chalres Evill (Alstonville and Locum) as Vice President; Dr John Curnow (Jindabyne) as Treasurer and; Dr Ian Kamerman (Tamworth) as Secretary
Joining Cowra’s Louise Baker on the committee are Dr Judy Toman (Moruya), Dr Rachel Christmas (Temora), Dr Angus Brown (Scone) and Dr Claire Cupitt (Locum).
Dr Egan is a procedural GP in Cooma who also provides VMO on-call services in Obstetrics, Anaesthetics, Emergency medicine and general in-patient medical care.
