GP Survey Donation

 

21 February 2017

Country people needing city health services benefit from donation

The RDWA has donated more than $9000 to the Cancer Council’s Greenhill and Flinders Lodges.

The money was donated by the resident GP workforce in rural South Australia.

“Our doctors had a choice to receive a fee for completing our GP survey or to donate the fee to a charity of their choice or to ours,” said RDWA CEO, Ms Lyn Poole.

“We chose Greenhill and Flinders Lodges because they help country residents who need to come to Adelaide for cancer treatment,” she said.

A cheque for $9280 was presented to Ms Cynthia Nicholson, who volunteers a large amount of time and energy to raising funds for the Greenhill and Flinders Lodges.

“The accommodation at the Lodges is only available to country cancer patients and their families who need to have cancer treatment in Adelaide. This donation will help towards the renovations we are currently doing to the rooms there,” said Ms Nicholson.
