Fiona is the Pri­ma­ry Health Care (PHC) Safe­ty & Qual­i­ty Man­ag­er for Top End Health Ser­vice (TEHS) North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry. Since 2015 she has led TEHS PHC towards imple­men­ta­tion of the Nation­al Safe­ty and Qual­i­ty Health Ser­vice (NSQHS) stan­dards in prepa­ra­tion for accred­i­ta­tion. TEHS PHC includes 26 remote Pri­ma­ry Health Cen­tres, Prison Health and Urban Com­mu­ni­ty Health ser­vices, Hear­ing Health and Oral Health pro­grams and Can­cer Screen­ing Services.

Fiona’s qual­i­fi­ca­tions and expe­ri­ence as a Reg­is­tered Nurse and man­ag­er range across acute and pri­ma­ry health care for close to 30 years. For 10 years she worked in pri­ma­ry health in the NT with both gov­ern­ment and non-gov­­ern­­ment organ­i­sa­tions. This enabled her to devel­op a broad under­stand­ing of the chal­lenges health pro­fes­sion­als face dai­ly in prac­tice as well as the over­all chal­lenges of the remote clin­i­cal and cul­tur­al setting.

For 6 years, Fiona worked as NT Clin­i­cal Man­ag­er for Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC). Dur­ing her tenure at RAHC, she suc­cess­ful­ly imple­ment­ed the RAHC Remote Edu­ca­tor (RE) pro­gram to pro­vide sup­port to clin­i­cians on their first placement.

Fiona was appoint­ed to the NT PHN Advi­so­ry Coun­cil in 2015 and elect­ed to the CRANAplus board the same year.

The obvi­ous com­mit­ment and pas­sion of CRANAplus to prepar­ing, sup­port­ing and speak­ing up for our rur­al and remote work­force has been an inspi­ra­tion to me as a Board mem­ber and a nurse.”
