Two wonderful videos featuring rural doctors and their patients

Rural GP Dr Ken Wanguhu

The passionate country doctors featuring in these videos with their patients are great examples for rural general practice. Warning: After watching the interviews you may feel the sudden urge to pack your bags and move to the country.

Dr Ken Wanguhu: “Being a GP has taught me that there is a lot more to medicine than disease… It goes beyond the disease to the patient and their family and to the community, and that’s general practice.”

The second video features Dr Mel Considine and her patient Phil from rural South Australia. Phil: “And the first thing I remember was this lovely lady leaning over me, and she said ‘I’m Doctor Mel, the duty doctor today, and I’m here to look after you.'”

  1. Thank you for sharing these videos! So wonderful to see rural physicians embracing the positive aspects of working in small communities. I especially loved how Mel said she learns from her patients – so true!
