RACGP Victoria General Practice of the Year 2019

Bendigo & District Aboriginal Co-operative (BDAC)

BDAC CEO, Raylene Harradine together with BDAC Medical Clinic staff, had the privilege to attend the RACGP Victoria annual event in Melbourne where our clinic was the recipient of the RACGP Statewide award. “These moments don’t just happen; they are driven by the hard work and commitment of staff through teamwork and leadership within the clinic. I recall when I commenced in the role as CEO that I quoted that my vision was that BDAC become an Aboriginal organisation of Excellence and this is happening”. I want to acknowledge the following staff who attended for their dedication:
Dr Naren, Christine Gibbons, Jaydene Burzacott, Crystal West, Heather Gale, Kate O’Callaghan and Dallas Widdicombe and also Barry Fary for his support.”
