THE Far West NSW Medicare Local (FWML) has announced the appointment of Stuart Gordon as the new chief executive officer.
FWML chairperson Dr Paul Collett said Mr Gordon brought a wealth of experience in health service development and management in Australia and overseas, along with profound commitment, well developed relationships and demonstrable achievements in the promotion, development and delivery of services with Aboriginal communities and for rural and remote communities more generally.
“As the CEO of the NSW Outback Division of General Practice in western NSW, Stuart had a detailed understanding and impressive track record of achievement in rural and remote primary health care and this was reflected in his selection from a strong field of other applicants for the new position” he said.
Mr Gordon now joins 62 other executives across Australia who will be heading up the rollout of the national primary health care reforms under the Medicare Local framework. He is a local to Bourke and has worked in senior and executive roles in the far west region of NSW for more than 20 years including roles in ATSIC, NSW Health, Division of General Practice primary and health care management roles overseas.
Mr Gordon said that he was excited to be selected to lead the new organisation and have an opportunity to continue to work with health professionals and organisations as the FWML begins its work in the north west.
“The FWML is the largest geographically in NSW and includes some of the states most disadvantaged communities and it makes a tremendous difference to one’s understanding of, and commitment to the bush when you and your family live and have lived there for generations,” he said.
