We have hit the ground running 🏃♂️ starting back on the 4th January after a short break and already we have exciting news.
We are still on track to have 🇦🇺 Dr. Felicity Paget 🇦🇺 start on the 13/01/2020 and we know she willl be an amazing 🤩 addition to our team.
In the background Dr. Livingston has been squirrelling away working, studying and doing courses and as a reward for his hard work he gets to add another string his bow.
As well as having:
🆘 Advanced Specialised Training in Emergency Medicine (AST EM) 🔪 Diploma in Skin Cancer (Dip Skin Ca) 🖥Remote Area Ultrasound Exemption (RAE)
He was awarded a timely and welcome Christmas 🎄 Present on the 24/12/2020.
The paperwork has been submitted and the approval granted with notification today.
Dr. Livingston has now been approved and formerly recognised as a GP Surgeon.
This is a rare qualification with less that 300 recognised GP surgeons in the whole of Australia. That’s less than 0.8% of the total number of GPs in the country. Quite an accolade.
This additional ability and skill only further bolsters his skill and ability to work in his role as a Rural Generalist (RG) with an AST in EM & Surgery.
This is just the beginning. Dr. Livingston has also been contacted about a few other, unique, opportunities so watch this space 😉

After a lot of negotiation and with the rolling out of the WA Rural Generalist Programme.
🎉 We have some exciting news! 🎉
Dr Felicity Paget is an Australian 🇦🇺 Born and Trained Doctor 🧑⚕️ who is embarking on her journey to become a Rural Generalist. 🦘
Of all the places Dr Paget could have taken she specifically chose to train under Dr. Livingston due to his reputation amongst his RG colleagues across Australia.
Special thanks also goes to Rachel Livingston who worked hard in the negotiation, communication with the regional training organisation, application process, Medicare process and every other process in between which kept Dr. Paget on track to apply here. Considering there is a general drought in most shires of even a doctor this is quite a coup here.
For those unaware about what a Rural Generalist is?
“A rural generalist is a medical practitioner who is trained to meet the specific current and future health care needs of Australian rural and remote communities, in a sustainable and cost-effective way. A rural generalist provides both comprehensive general practice and emergency care, and required components of other medical specialist care in hospital and community settings as part of a rural healthcare team.”
(National Rural Generalist Taskforce Advice, December 2018)
Dr. Paget starts on the 11th January 2021 and will see her first patients from the 13th January 2021.
Make an appointment the usual way
