The Rudd Government has signed an agreement with Rural and Metropolitan Health Pty Ltd to provide $2.5 million for the establishment of the Port Stephens GP Super Clinic.
The Port Stephens GP Super Clinic will be centrally located for the community in the main shopping precinct of Nelson Bay at the former Nelson Bay Plaza.
The facility will accommodate up to six full-time general practitioners, three nurses and a range of medical specialists and allied health services.
The Port Stephens GP Super Clinic will provide integrated health services to meet the needs and priorities of the local community. It will have a strong focus on preventative care and chronic disease management, especially in the area of diabetes.
The Port Stephens GP Super Clinic intends to provide many bulk-billed and weekend services.
It will also work closely with local nursing homes and community-based organisations such as Port Stephens Community Transport and Port Stephens Community Options Program.
Operators of the GP Super Clinic, Rural and Metropolitan Health Pty Ltd, are committed to providing quality health solutions. The organisation was established by two general practitioners, Dr Warwick Yonge and Dr George Manoliadis who have worked in the local region.
This announcement follows community consultation held in Port Stephens last year where 90 health professionals and community members attended.
GP Super Clinics are a $275 million commitment of the Rudd Government, providing primary health care services when and where they are needed.
They are a key part of the Government’s plans to improve Australia’s health care system.
