As Dr John Douyere flies into Charleville, Quilpie and Cunnamulla as part of our GPs4RuralDocs program, his career has come full circle. He spent 23 years as a rural doctor just a few hours away in the beautiful outback town of Longreach.

John knows better than most how important the GPs4RuralDocs program is to the healthcare workers that dedicate their lives to these rural communities. He understands the challenges they face when it comes to looking after their own health and wellbeing.

“Looking back on it now, I think that my overall health probably would’ve been better if I’d had access to something like this,” he says when reflecting on his own experiences as a doctor in Longreach. “Because when you’re in it, you can’t see it and you can’t see that you’re not looking after yourself particularly well.”

Despite the challenges that come with life as a rural doctor, there are no regrets in John’s voice when he talks about the many years spent in Longreach with his wife, Jayne, and their two boys. It’s mostly pride in a community he loved and satisfaction in the career path he took. A career path that was never forced upon him.

It was something he chose.
