Following more than twenty years in the general practice training sector, eighteen of which have been in the role of Chief Executive Officer at GP Synergy, John Oldfield is leaving GP Synergy.
During his tenure, he oversaw two amalgamations and the expansion of GP Synergy to become the sole regional training provider of the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program in NSW and ACT.
“The Board joins me in thanking John for his hard work and commitment to the advancement of general practice training and wishes him well in the future,” said GP Synergy Chair, Dr Ian Kamerman.
With the transition of the AGPT program to the two colleges of general practice well underway, Dr Kamerman said GP Synergy is well placed for the exciting future that lays ahead.
“GP Synergy is a long-standing organisation, with significant expertise and experience underpinning our strong reputation for delivering high quality general practice education and training across rural, remote and urban settings.
“As we transition towards College-led training, we are focussed on meeting the needs of GP registrars, GP supervisors, our patients and communities.
“We are looking forward to working closely with both colleges during the transition period including opportunities to increase the interest and attraction of doctors into our rewarding profession.”
GP Synergy Chief Operating Officer, Company Secretary and Deputy CEO, Georgina van de Water, has been appointed Interim CEO.
