"We're working to improve health care in our community through strong general practice"

October 2017

Congratulations to GPpartners' new Board. Dr Geoff Harding was elected at the

recent AGM to fill the vacant position.


The GPpartners board now has Dr Geoff Harding, Dr Jeanne Carpenter and Dr

Murray Bingham as directors. Dr Geoff Harding is a GP at Sandgate with a

special interest in musculoskeletal medicine. Geoff has extensive governance

experience, including being a Council Member of AMA for the Greater Brisbane

Area. We look forward to some innovative ideas for GPpartners.


Thank you to the attendees at the AGM held at the Broncos Leaques Club on

the 11th of October. There was considerable discussion about opportunities for

General Practice and the changes that are coming. It is good to see the interest

in GPs owning their own practices. There are some ideas about how these GPs

can be supported with maybe a cooperative to share costs and resources.


The first board meeting is in November.
