12th November 2018
By Belinda McNab
It has been two and a half years since Bingara has had a full-time GP to call their own. Rural and Remote Medical Services are very proud to announce that Dr. Lushanth Aloysious has joined the Bingara Medical Centre indefinitely.
Prior to his arrival in Bingara, Dr. Aloysious worked at Blacktown/Mt Druitt Hospital emergency medicine department.
Hailing from Madurai, a wonderful temple city in southern India, Dr. Aloysious graduated medicine in Chennai. He then worked at National University Hospital, a well renowned medical university in Singapore for 4 years.
Whilst working toward his GP fellowship through the Remote Vocational Training Scheme in Bingara, he will also deliver emergency medicine at Bingara Multipurpose Service. Dr. Aloysious also has a special interest in the delivery of geriatric care.
“It has been a while since we've been able to say that we now have a full-time GP. Dr. Aloysious is settling into his new role very well, both here and at the hospital, as he gets to know our community and his patients” said Ann-Maree Anderson of Rural and Remote Medical Services Bingara Medical Centre.
Dr. Aloysious said “My wife Vidhya and I have had a great start here at Bingara. We were pleased with the warm welcome from the RaRMS team, MPS team and the shire council. We hope to be part of Bingara’s warm community for a long time”.
Dr. Aloysious is also an avid artist and has produced some spectacular artworks on canvas. You may see him down at the local cricket game either as a spectator or participant or out at the local golf course practicing his swing.
Ann-Maree and the staff at Bingara Medical Centre would like to welcome Dr. Lushanth Aloysious to the RaRMS practice and Bingara community.
