Dr Richard Kwong of the Eastbroke Medical Centre Southern Highlands has received the Rural Medical Service Award at a ceremony in Sydney.
The award recognises and acknowledges rural General Practitioners who have achieved long-standing medical service to regional, rural and remote communities in New South Wales. As is to be imagined, it is a very small number of GPs who dedicate their career to rural practice for so long.
The award was presented by Dr Ian Cameron, CEO of the Rural Doctors Network, at Crowne Plaze, Coogge, on Saturday 26 November 2011.
Dr Kwong is a very highly skilled GP, having achieved Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, as well as having achieve his Diploma of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. Dr Kwong received his Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery from the University of New South Wales in 1970.
Congratulations from all at Eastbrooke!
