Allied Health Services Available
Current patients of the clinic may have noticed an increase in our allied health services in the last year or so. Vermont Health Care has always strived to provide more comprehensive services to the community and are happy to have Podiatry, Physiotherapy, Psychology and Dietitian Services. If you are wondering if these will benefit you, please talk to one of our doctors or receptionists to access these services.
Thanks to all our patients who have supported this practice over the years. We are now happy to announce that the online booking service is up and running. The service is run by HotDoc and you can also download the app to your mobile device if you prefer. Not all available appointments are listed online so if you feel your matter is urgent, please call us and we will endeavour to fit you in on the same day. The Urgent Care weekend appointments will need to be made by phone at this time but this might change in the future. Please feel free to provide our staff with feedback so we can help make this program as user-friendly as possible.
Congratulations to our recent registrars who have done us proud by passing both AKT and KFP components of the exam. We wish you all the best in your future endeavours!
Vermont Health Care has had a long history of teaching registrars over the years and a number have stayed on after completion as part of our current team. We provide a full spectrum of General Practice work from Home visits, Workforce medicals, Nursing Home visits in addition to our comprehensive in-house General practice services. We have interviewed many excellent candidates this year and have reached our quota of registrars for 2020.
We have three Level 1 accredited supervisors in our clinics and a few of them are also involved as Fellowship Examiners for the RACGP.
We would love to have a chat and help you explore your options in General Practice. If this has piqued your interest, please feel free to forward your CV or alternatively, contact the clinic to speak with a Supervisor (Dr Marino Alexopoulos & Dr Terence Heng).
GP’s who have achieved their vocational registration are also welcome to apply for a position as well.
Newest additions to the VHC team
A BIG warm welcome to Dr. Anthea Tan! Anthea joins us after spending the past 10 years working as a GP in Regional Victoria.
We also wish to welcome our latest registrars, Dr Rowena Cao and Dr Juen Li Ding to our team.
Fracture Diversion Project in Conjunction with Eastern Melbourne PHN
Dr Terence Heng is part of a year-long project where fractures which are amenable for GP management are being seen and managed in our clinic. He has undergone further training and attachments at Box Hill Hospital to provide this service to patients. This service is open to the community as well and does not need a referral. If you have a suitable fracture and have been referred to the fracture clinic or Emergency Department at Box Hill Hospital or Maroondah Hospital, you may be offered a list of GPs in your area who are participating in this project.
