Our practices are accredited with Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL).
Accreditation is voluntary however our practice views it as portraying a message of ‘quality in practice’ and a commitment to continuing improvement in Australian General Practice.
Both practices have a strong teaching focus and we have one or two general practice registrars with us each year.
Since January 2005 we have been fortunate to have an intern rotating every 10 weeks from the Lyell McEwin Hospital.
This scheme has been an enormous success, and favourably viewed by patients, interns and the practice alike. The interns practice under close supervision of practice doctors, and are involved in all aspects of practice work both general practice and hospital based.
Two Flinders University Medical Students are placed with the practice for their entire third year (of a four year postgraduate course) under the PRCC program (Parallel Rural Community Curriculum). This is a well established program that is already operating in three other regions of South Australia. Two students are allocated to our practice for 12 months, and would also be immersed in the clinical life of the practice for the duration.

Doctors

Our doctors are supported by professional and experienced administrative staff and equipment at all times. Currently we have a practice manager, an office manager, eight receptionists and in addition to the seven practice nurses and a mental health nurse.
