Dr Robert Clarke was recently recognised for his contribution to the Port Macquarie and surrounding community as a dedicated GP Supervisor.

Dr Clarke began practice in the Port Macquarie area 20 years ago as a GP before becoming a GP Supervisor over 10 years ago.

General Practice Supervisors Australia (GPSA) Chair, Dr Steven Holmes said “many GPs like Dr Clarke were attracted to supervision because having a hand in the growth of competence and confidence of GP registrars, this adds another layer of complexity and interest to the role of a community GP”.

“Dr Clarke is being recognised for his commitment to providing the very best care to patients whilst supervising, inspiring and supporting the next generation of GP’s and the future GP workforce”.

Dr Bastian Seidel, RACGP President congratulated Dr Clarke, for so many years of service.

“General practice supervisors’ offer one-on-one teaching, supervision, support, feedback and advice, they are at the coal-face of GP training. It is the apprenticeship model that supports best health outcomes for patients, and we are proud to recognise our colleagues for their many years of service”.
