Thank you Dr Jeff Urquhart and farewell

After more than 10 years of working at HEMC as a part time GP, Dr Jeff Urquhart has decided that it is time to retire from clinical general practice.  Jeff has a transition to retirement plan that will occur over the next several years. He will continue in his Barwon Health role in GP Liaison, orthopaedic outpatients and currently assist in the COVID positive pathways with clinical advice to the remote patient monitoring team.

Additionally, there are a number of hospital IT projects that need further primary care input. These include the deployment of a community EMR and acute hospital EMR with the roll out a new regional secure messaging environment to replace the current retired client.

Dr Jeff has worked at HEMC since the start of the practice and has seen the practice grow and flourish. As Jeff transitions to retirement, he hopes to spend more time with his family and pursue personal interests.

Thank you Dr Jeff, the team at Health E
