Jennifer Moss, Practice Manager, Tumby Bay Medical Clinic
Jennifer is GPSA’s first Practice Manager (PM) to receive a Recognition Award, having been nominated for going above and beyond to support GP registrars through their placements at Tumby Bay Medical Clinic.
Jennifer stepped into the demanding role of PM just as the practice increased its GP registrar and med student training positions. Quickly assessing the needs of the trainees, she was soon providing accommodation for registrars on call overnight at the local rural hospital, especially those who normally live out of town. This doesn’t just mean providing a bed, but opening up her home for company and support and family connections.
Within the practice, Jennifer is known for remembering (and making a fuss over) staff birthdays and other special occasions, creating a close-knit, supportive ‘work family’ environment. As her nominating colleague states:
“These are the things that make our work such a great place to be and helps everyone in the busy-ness of day-to-day general practice work more productively for our community.”
