Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service’s Dr Daniel Hunt has been recognised for his unwavering commitment to his patients and community with the 2022 Royal Australian College of General Practitioners award for Western Australian GP In Training of the Year.
The Jaru man and former NAIDOC Scholar of the Year works across all Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service clinics providing GP services. He has been proactive in Derbarl Yerrigan’s COVID-19 care program, providing telehealth services to patients in isolation, outreach through COVID-19 vaccinations to homeless and vulnerable patients, and has been instrumental in continuous quality improvement projects including hepatitis B, syphilis point of care, and sexual health.
Dr Dan has also been a strong GP clinical lead in Derbarl Yerrigan’s social and emotional wellbeing program. Congratulations to Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service and Dr Dan for this recognition of excellence in general practice. AHCWA extends our best wishes as Dr Dan progresses to the Australian GP registrar Awards.
