I think we need to take this to another degree, and the only way you get suitable trained staff in rural and remote is to provide them mentoring and a sense of a team even if they are a solo therapist. They need to be linked in with a bigger service.

I strongly support the need to support, education and empower the rural/ remote generalist. They are a critical link in the chain of providing health care.
