A message of thanks

After a long period dealing with drought, bushfires, floods, mice infestations and the COVID-19 pandemic, we know the stress and strain on the ground is real.

We would like to say thank you to all our rural GPs, nurses, allied health practitioners, nurses, midwives, Aboriginal health practitioners, practice managers, carers, pharmacists, paramedics, receptionists and administrators – everyone who is part of the rural workforce.

I have never met you in person, but want to as soon as we can. We have spoken and messaged throughout COVID and I have made a new friend. I am inspired by the work you do for your community and the lengths you go to in supporting them. You are positive and grateful for every day you can help others. You are an inspiration to us all. Thank you

From: Robyn Ramsden

Dr Ali, you are such an inspiration. Thank you for all the great work you are doing caring for the Armidale community, in particular the refugee community - who have needed your care and support.
Many thanks
