We highlight the fantastic contributions from our staff, medical educators and key partners in our region. The report epitomises and actively demonstrates our ability to innovate. In video interviews, key stakeholders share insights into our partnership and discuss collaborative activities operating in our region. We share our achievements and successes during what was a difficult year and are pleased to say we got through it! We thank all our stakeholders for their support and collaboration throughout 2020. Together we made a fantastic contribution to the health of our communities in Eastern Victoria. To view the report visit www.evannualreport.com.au

Eastern Victoria GP Training was sad to hear of the passing of Dr Carolyn Royse on 16 April 2021. Many of you will have known her as a dedicated supervisor for many years at Nillumbik and Research Medical Centre. In more recent years she has extended her contribution to training as a Supervisor Liaison Officer and active participant in the Regional Interest Advisory Group. Carolyn’s insights, contributions, and support will be missed at EV. Our condolences are extended to her husband Colin and her family, and the team at Nillumbik and Research Medical Centre.
