COTA NSW Board since 2016
Chair of the Learning and Development Committee
Dr Stephen Ginsborg is a general practitioner working on the Northern Beaches of Sydney for over 40 years. He is a Board Member of Sydney North Primary Health Network (PHN). He also sits on the Boards of Community Care Northern Beaches (CCNB), Manly Warringah Division of General Practice, and Kamaroi School.
His interests include mental health, and elder, palliative and intergenerational care. He cares for all ages, but the challenges of ageing have great resonance for him in his work. He is committed to developing strategies that assist community, GPs and other health care professionals to offer options for people, based on compassionate care in a manner and place of their choice.
Stephen liaises with and learns from his local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. For many years he has been working with Groundswell to bring the Compassionate Communities model of care to Australia.
