Congratulations to Dr. Crockett

Dr Crockett sits on a number of committees relating to the mental health and wellbeing of the people of Western Sydney.

National and NSW General Practice of the Year

 

In 2012 Riverstone Family Medical Practice won a Commonwealth Government Primary Care Infrastructure Grant in order to expand the practice premises and services. This has supplemented the contribution of Dr Crockett and Dr Muir and is recognition of the importance of the work being done by RFMP in the Riverstone community.

In 2014 the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners chose to name Riverstone Family Medical Practice as the National and NSW General Practice of the Year. This award is given to one practice each year to acknowledge a strong commitment to the delivery of high quality primary healthcare services to their local community. RFMP was recognised as such a practice with particular note made of the commitment to teaching and to providing culturally appropriate services to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Presentation of the award was made at the annual conference in Adelaide in October 2014. Almost all the practice staff were able to attend this prestigious event so that a group of 12 set out from Riverstone on excursion for 2 days.
