(Executive Officer) – Ellenborough
Rob has lived the past 9 years in semi-retirement at Ellenborough in the Mid-North Coast hinterland. He spent most of his working life in the Top End of the NT where he practiced as a physiotherapist and health programs manager, mainly in the context of remote Aboriginal health care. His skills and experience lie in the areas of cross-cultural primary care planning, program management, and remote workforce planning. Rob is the past Chairperson of Services for Australian Rural & Remote Allied Health (SARRAH).
Rob has a vision that Allied Health Professionals on the North Coast will provide high-quality, evidence-based and accessible services to the residents of the North Coast based on equity and service need. His hope is that AHP services will be patient-centred and evaluated and that they will be champions of multi-disciplinary team-based approaches for achieving the best possible health outcomes via the most efficient models of care.
