Dr Duncan McKellar

Dr Duncan McKellar is an old age psychiatrist. He was a member of the Oakden Review panel with the South Australian Chief Psychiatrist in 2017 and co-author of the landmark Oakden Report. Following the publication of the Report, Duncan took a lead role in the Oakden Response Oversight Committee appointed by SA Health and was appointed to the role of Head of Unit for the Older Persons’ Mental Health Service in the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network (NALHN) to lead the implementation of the recommendations of the Report. After operationalising the closure of the Oakden Campus, he led the development and commissioning of Northgate House, which has developed as an exemplar of new ways of working with people with dementia with complex needs in South Australian public health services.

Dr Duncan McKellar chaired the statewide working groups for the development of new models of care, staffing profiles and reducing restrictive practices in older persons’ mental health services. He also co-authored the Older Persons’ Mental Health Service Culture Framework, which has underpinned reform processes within the older persons’ mental health service and NALHN. He has a keen interest in promoting positive organisational cultures that will be committed to compassionate relationship-centred care, delivered by deliberately developmental inter-disciplinary teams with people, their families and carers at the centre of activity and service development.
