Winner of 2020 AAAPC Travelling Fellowship

Congratulations to Dr Michael Wright of University of Technology, Sydney

Michael will be travelling to the UK to visit the University of Manchester and other leading GP researchers “to investigate the establishment of primary care networks in the English National Health Service (NHS) and provide understanding about whether these structures are likely to reform delivery of UK general practice services, and whether they are applicable for Australia’s health system.”

We look forward to hearing from Michael about his findings when he returns - safe travels Michael!
