MT Beauty GP Jeff Robinson has been named the Telstra Health RDAA Rural Doctor of the Year.
The humble medico and his wife, Libby who is also a GP, have been part of the Mount Beauty and Falls Creek communities for the past 17 years.
Dr Robinson said the recognition was largely due to an extensive support team.
“None of this is possible without the support of my medical colleagues, nurses and staff at our practice and local health service,” he said.
“Above all, I recognise the support of my wife and family, who are understanding enough to share me with my work as a rural GP.
“I am very lucky to have Libby as my partner — together we share the demands of work and family, while living a life which is truly rewarding.”
