This episode is the second part of a two-part series exploring the experiences of GPs who have provided their locum services in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
In the first part, we heard from Dr. Katrina White who recounted her involvement in volunteering after the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009.
In this second part, we’re going to look a decade on from Black Saturday to the summer of 2020 where the Gippsland region of Victoria would come to face a two month long devastating bushfire crisis, as fires ravaged across Australia.
Dr. Clare Roczniok, a GP on the RWAV Locum Program, was one of the doctors deployed to Corryong to provide much needed locum relief for health services in East Gippsland. We’ll be talking to her about her involvement with the bushfires in Corryong, and why she loves doing locum work in Victoria’s rural communities.
