Working with you
Our aim is to work collaboratively with specialists already working in the region and attract more visiting specialists to build all specialist services to meet the growing health care demands of our local community.
High quality specialist services, close to home
We are aware of the challenges GPs face when accessing specialist care for their patients. This may include specialists being based far away and the need for patients to make multiple trips and travel lengthy distances.
That’s why our Specialist Centre aims to bring many of the key specialties under the one roof or provide Outreach services where possible.
Whilst it may not be possible for all specialties to be represented locally in the Great Southern, our coordinated approach to care means that, in some instances, pre and post care can be provided locally through our Centre.
Collaborative, coordinated care
Having multiple specialists under the same roof offers several advantages including better and efficient coordination of patient care and communication between specialists.
We believe that a central referral facility leads to improved outcomes in patient care in our community and we work collaboratively with the public system and the local medical industry to reduce these gaps in our community’s health services.
Always looking to improve choice
Recent data has demonstrated the gaps in services and common trends of people having to travel to Perth from Albany for specialist treatment. This information has highlighted the largest gaps in ENT, Orthopaedics, , Neurology, Cardiology and Paediatrics.
The team at the Great Southern Specialist Centre are working on these identified areas to address the range of specialties offered as well as the increasing the availability of specialists themselves.
If you are interested in practicing through the Great Southern Specialist Centre – please contact the Practice Manager, Latrice Porter and we’d be happy to assist you.
Streamlined referral and reporting
At Great Southern Specialist Centre, we are committed to streamlining the process of referring and reporting. Our centre is committed to ensuring concise and timely reporting so that you can then continue to manage your ongoing care.
