Because our health is the most important Project
Comprehensive patient care
We consider all appointments with patients as a chance to not only solve the issues brought by
our patients, but also to actively review other areas of health we can optimise, including:
Appropriate cancer screening and reviewing vaccination status
Screen for preventable illness such as cardiovascular risk factors
Updating past medical and family histories
Review dietary and exercise regimes
At Project Health General Practice, we believe quality health care should be comprehensive, and that it takes time to properly explore a person’s health from the big picture. Our default is to book new patients for 30 minute consultations and, where time permits, a 15-20 minute consultation as the standard length for existing patients. A ‘brief’ appointment of less than 15 minutes may be appropriate after a therapeutic relationship has been established and if only fairly simple issues need to be discussed.
Our GPs are fully qualified and registered with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM), and also with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and appropriate regulatory bodies.
We are proud to be an AGPAL accredited practice.
Medicine is fast paced and rapidly changing,
and our doctors endeavour to keep abreast of the latest
in evidence-based medicine, so that we are well-placed
to discuss various investigation and management options with you.
Our practice complies with all relevant State and Territory legislations and laws.
Zero Tolerance Policy
We respectfully advise you that abuse of any kind and/or violence will not be tolerated.
We have a ZERO TOLERANCE approach to any verbal, aggressive and violent abuse and behaviour towards our staff or other patients.
All our staff are trained and dedicated to serve you and you will be treated with courtesy and respect at all times.
In return, we ask that you and anyone that you bring with you to the Practice treat our administrative and clinical staff with the same courtesy and respect.
Our vision is to provide exceptional, comprehensive primary healthcare to the residents of the Latrobe Valley
We aim to be the best destination for healthcare. Our mission is to be known by our patients, and our community as a general practice with extraordinary patient care. We want to provide continuity of care, and be known for our compassion, expertise, and integrity.
Responsibility belongs to every person in every role at Project Health General Practice. We strive for excellence in all that we do and believe that responsibility and accountability go hand in hand. At Project Health General Practice, integrity is more than a word; it is our ethos. We do the right thing, even when the right thing is the hard thing. One Team: We work together to make our business thrive. We are stronger and more successful when we leverage the diverse experience, intellect, and strengths of the Project Health GP Team. Project Health General Practice is built on people and relationships, and caring for the broader community.
