Mine nurse named Local Hero for community care
He was among nine 2020 Local Hero winners announced by the Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section), recognising Queenslanders who have donated time and energy to keep the Flying Doctor in the air, or assisted in an emergency.
The RFDS said Mr Clark and fellow Ravenswood Gold nurse Vanessa De Landelles were regularly called upon to go above their call of duty as the mine’s dedicated nurses to deliver healthcare to the people of Ravenswood.
RFDS doctor Yvonne Doveren said having the nurses at Ravenswood was a great support to the medical staff flying in to care for the community.
“As we only hold one clinic a month in Ravenswood it is a great relief to our doctors that there are qualified nurses who are happy to follow up with patients and keep us up to date with any concerns while we are not here,” she said.
“The Ravenswood community is so fortunate to have the Ravenswood Gold nurses – they really do go above and beyond both to treat community members and to assist RFDS in holding clinics in town.”
