The MGA launched our first series of the MGA Clinical Influencers Podcast in early 2022 with six episodes led by Professor Muiris FitzGerald. The second and third series are led by Professor Patrick Murray who is delighted to be joined by a UCD School of Medicine Alumnus for each conversation.
Graduating from UCD Medicine in 1988, Dr Ray Power completed his GP specialist training before working in Australia with the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the University of Western Australia.
A co-founder of Centric Health in Ireland, Dr Power believes that the doctor-patient relationship is at the core of effective healthcare promoting patient health and wellbeing. He believes the impact of deep and meaningful relationships between patients and their GPs is about prevention and not hyper-intervention, it is moving from a sickness to a wellness model, it is about having the time to hear patients’ concerns and strive to keep them healthy in their own communities.
Join Prof Murray and Dr Power as they reminisce about their days as UCD medical students and as Dr Power shares his insights into a general practice health system focused on patient wellbeing.
