An election for the position of Chair, Custodial Health Network, was held following the retirement of Dr Tom Turnbull. Dr Penny Abbott has been elected as Chair. The RACGP SI thanks Dr Turnbull for his work as Chair and wishes him well in his new role.
The Breast Medicine Network has been a sub-group of the Cancer and Palliative Care Network for the past two years. In view of increasing activity, a decision was made by the RACGP Specific Interests to reinstate the group as a stand-alone network and call for nominations for the position of Chair. A ballot was held and Dr Alia Kaderbhai has been elected as network Chair.
