PRACTICE VISIT | Carmen and Julie from Cardwell Family Practice recently shared with Kristie from NQPHN's practice support team their new way of letting patients know what services are on offer. This fantastic chalk board behind the reception counter has been very successful in increasing appointments and allowing patients to see what is coming up in the weeks ahead. What a great idea!
