To friends of Edmonton family medical centre,
I will be finishing up working in rural and regional Australia, with the bulk of it here in Cairns, at the end of this year and
will rebasing myself back in the capital cities from March 2017. You will be looked after by the other number of doctors
here, with at least one new one starting up next year, and the staff and nurses will assist you with that.
It has been a valuable experience working in areas of need the last four years or so where there’s been fewer doctors and
obtaining more hands-on experience. I would firstly and foremost like to thank the GP principal Dr Anthony Kresevic who
has been very generous and accommodating. I have enjoyed working with Dr Shaku Shanmugam all my time here as well
as the other doctors, the vital team of nurses led by senior nurse Sylvia as well as the very helpful front desk staff with the
very capable and experienced practice manager Debbie.
I’m here til Christmas and then will be working and helping out in outback Australia over summer as well as a volunteer
trip to PNG before starting my new job/s where I still hope to periodically venture out on short-term trips.
I am grateful for many of you entrusting your care to me – some of you have been through very testing times in your health
and lives, and I hope that I have been of assistance to you with God’s help,
Dr Richard Wong
