NON CLINICAL PROFESSIONAL INTERESTS Chair and cofounder of the Abrolhos Group, our not for profit.  One of the founding members of the rural doctors movement in WA, I hope to live long enough to see the goals of RDA and ACRRM achieved in my home state. 1994-95 Midwest GP Division founding chair 1996 Fundraising chair Geraldton Grammar School, inaugural board member 2000-01 RDAWA president 2002-03 RDAA vice president 1999 – current. Rural Clinical School Clinical Lecturer.  2006 commenced with SJOG Health Social Outreach to assist the Roebourne AMS. 2006-2012 Chair MAC SJOGH.  Involved in WACRRM, ACRRM, and local hospital committees for many years. Proud convenor of the annual Abrolhos Islands conference for 5 years, went into recess and morphed into the first of Annual Scientific Meetings of the RCSWA. I convened the first meeting in Geraldton, subsequent meetings were held in Kalgoorlie, Bunbury and Broome.  It has changed its name to Rural Health Conference and is now cohosted by the Rural Clinical School WA and Rural Health West. I take two half days off from the practice per week. Over time this will gradually increase. I plan to stay in Geraldton and continue practising for the time being. I would like to see the national promulgation of formalised shared care programmes under ACRRM guidelines,  successful introduction of the rural generalist pathway in WA  along similar lines to Queensland.  This would mean Western Australian Country Health Services becoming a primary allocation centre.

My father’s side were Protestant Irish from County Armagh descended from refugee Huguenots from the north of France and Normandy. There remain a number of Pedlow families in the town of Lurgan, Armagh, just south of Belfast.
