    Meet our new GPs – Dr Neil Mackay and Dr Borna Das

    A warm welcome to our new GP registrars – Dr Neil Mackay and Dr Borna Das, who joined our Moruya GP team on Monday, 1st February.

    After four years training in orthopaedics in far north Queensland, Dr Mackay completed his first 12 months of the 18 month GP  registrar training programme in Pambula last year and joins us to complete his final training semester – Neil and his young family have decided to settle here in our local area. 

    Dr Das has now embarked on her first six month GP training semester after recently working as a Senior Resident Medical Officer (SRMO) in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology department of Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital.

    Queen Street Medical Centre is recognised as a leading, accredited GP training practice in NSW, attracting a record number of applications for this 2021 training year. Our GP registrars usually elect to complete at least 12 months of their 18 months training at our Moruya practice. Many of our former GP registrars have settled permanently in our local area and remain with our practice.

    Medicine reviews are proving good for patients and doctors

    It’s just over 12 months since we announced the appointment of our clinical pharmacist Jo McMahon. The clinical results and feedback from our clinical team and our patients are impressive.

    “I have checked blood results and calculated renal function for hundreds of medicines to ensure that the dose is correct. Patients discharged from hospital who need to understand changes that have been made to their prescribed medicines can be followed up and I can liaise with the patient’s community pharmacy if required.”
