Rural Medical Service Award
Each year the Rural Medical Service Award acknowledges rural doctors who have achieved long-standing medical service to regional, rural and remote communities in New South Wales (NSW).
The service can be cumulative or consecutive and GPs who are currently practising and have been working for 35 or more years in rural NSW (RA2-5) are eligible.
Applications for this year's awards will open in August 2019. For more information about the awards email firstname.lastname@example.org.
