Dr Ines Rio

General Practitioner, Vic

Ines’ clinical work is as a general practitioner at a community health centre and as a GP obstetrician at The Royal Women’s Hospital. Her desire to reform and improve systems to better meet the need of patients has led to her involvement in a wide array of strategic, advisory, planning, regulatory and leadership roles.  She is currently the Chair of the North-Western Melbourne PHN, on the Board of Medical Practitioners Board of Victoria, Chair of AMA Victoria Section of General Practice and Medical Advisor for the City of Melbourne.


Ines is a champion of integrated, quality, effective, equitable, efficient, sustainable and acceptable service delivery between different health care professionals and sectors, capacity building in primary care and providing effective primary care solutions to meet the needs of those whose health needs are currently not adequately met.
