Since March 2020, my professional role has mainly been as Primary Care Lead for the COVID-19 pandemic response in Queensland. I am a member of the Pandemic Health Response Implementation Advisory Group (PHRIAG) that was convened by the Director General and liaise between Queensland Health, the State Healthcare Emergency Co-ordination Centre (SHECC) and primary care stakeholders, including: AMAQ, RACGP, ACCRM, GPTQ, JCU, RFDS, Office of Rural and Remote Health, all seven PHNs and the Queensland HealthPathways (HP) Community.
My usual roles are as a General Practitioner in Logan and Clinical Lead and Liaison for Queensland Health and the Gold Coast Primary Health Network (PHN) since 2014.
Prior to 2014, I was a rural GP and an Associate Adviser for NHS Education for Scotland. In that role, I helped to establish the national Scottish Patient Safety Programme (SPSP) and contributed to or led the design, development, testing, implementation and evaluation of a wide range of tools and educational resources to improve the quality and safety of primary care.
