SSW GP Link - looking out for all GPs in south west Sydney....

February 01, 2018

We have two articles for February 2018 and these will be my last posts to the you. I will continue to be active in bringing issues affecting SWS GPs to the fore. I will continue to work towards improving the care that we as GPs, provide to our patients. Most importantly, I will be here to ensure that our interests are protected. GP Voice will be your voice As they say, as one door closes another door opens. While I am no longer associated with GP Link from hereon, I will concentrate my activities on a new site. A number of similarly minded GP colleagues have constituted an Editorial Board to guide the new site, I look forward to your support.


I wish the new board at GP Link the best for the future as I say my goodbye.

Can we do better than accepting without question the progressive nature of T2D?

Chronic Hep B Mx - Fairfield GPs can do it better!

HCCGPs from the Fairfield area did us all proud in south west Sydney. They were part of the B Positive Program which demonstrated that with training, increased community awareness and coordination, primary care patients with chronic hepatitis B received anti-viral treatment which was 3X higher than the average uptake in Australia. The pilot program also increased GP and community awareness of Chronic B Hepatitis.
