Dr Susan Barnett
Dr Susan Barnett has been a Gp in 2003 and then became GP Counsellor in a private practice since 2010. She also works as a Medical Educator doing external visits for Gp Registrars as part of their training for EVGPT.
Susan believes that GPs are well placed and often under utilized in helping our patients and families that are impacted by mental health issues. The recent Covid impact has certainly highlighted the importance of being trained in providing good psychological support/management.
Susan has joined the ASPM committee with the hope she can be actively involved in creating changes in our work force to inspires others to consider upskilling to work in this area of medicine.
