Rural Medical Service Award
Each year, NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) recognises General Practitioners (GPs) who have provided long-standing medical service to remote, rural and regional NSW.
The Rural Medical Service Award honours GPs who have spent the past 35 years or more providing exceptional health care to the people of remote, rural and regional NSW.
The service can be cumulative or consecutive, and GPs who are currently practising or have been working for 35 or more years in rural NSW (RA2-5 or MMM2-7) are eligible.

2021 Rural Medical Service Award
The resilience of our remote, rural and regional communities in NSW and the ACT, and the multidisciplinary rural health workforce, have been sorely tested again in 2021 by drought, bushfires, floods and the COVID-19 pandemic.
In spite of these challenges, rural health professionals have continued to deliver high-quality health care to their communities, and we take this opportunity to thank all our health professionals for their hard work and dedication, not only this year but throughout their careers.
For those who have reached the impressive milestone of 35+ years service, we acknowledge you for the long-standing contributions you have made to your communities.
Nominate yourself or another outstanding doctor now. Nominations will be accepted until Friday 29 October 2021.
The Award presentation
Typically, the Rural Medical Service Awards are presented during RDN’s annual Rural GPs Conference dinner.
This year, we will announce the Rural Medical Service Award 2021 awardees on Friday 26 November during the evening launch of the virtual Rural GPs Conference.
This year the Rural GPs Conference is presented as part of RH21 – a month of rural health events and activities. Interested in finding out more about RH21?
Further details will be provided closer to the event.
We understand an integral component to the Award is the opportunity to gather with your peers, family and friends at the Conference dinner. We hope to be able to present the Conference dinner and Award ceremony as usual in 2022, and in this case, we will invite all recipients to attend the dinner and be celebrated in person.
