Commitment to Rural Care

One day in 1983, Dr Patrick Giltrap decided to stop moving. Six years working as a locum GP in every corner of country NSW, from Narromine to Cooma, had convinced him that rural general practice was the thing for him.

So Giltrap got a map of NSW and picked a place to start his own practice. Gilgandra, a small town of about 3,000 people 65 kilometres north of Dubbo, was where he went.
