Welcome to the Bridge Clinic website. We welcome your feedback so feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 08 8539 3232 so that we can continue to improve the information we provide.
Our building project continues to offer us challenges in providing daily services to our patients. To date it has been an exciting process, with the opening of our new reception space, nurses treatment rooms and ambulance area. We will very soon open the next stage, including new emergency doctors’ rooms, completion of the upgraded nurses work spaces, a considerably larger waiting area, some new consulting rooms, patient and staff toilets, children’s play space and expanded IMVS rooms. Although the furniture will be sparce for a little while longer (until we complete the renovation on the Altmann waiting area too) we will, down the track, also have some lovely new seating.
A big thank you to our patients and the Bridge Clinic team for forbearance as we move services and people around the building to accommodate the builders, minimize the impact of noise on service delivery and generally ‘make do’ in some areas as we continue development. Mobbs Construction and their team continue to be very accommodating and flexible to ensure we remain open and able to provide healthcare for our patients.
We are still on track to finish the project in about August and it will be exciting and a relief to see the builders utes finally pull out of the driveway and wave goodbye!
Over the past few months we have welcomed a number of new faces to our team, including Dr Rebecca Allmond, Dr Hafiz Abd Rahim and Dr Paul Angus. We are very pleased to have additional doctors with the team, allowing us to offer more appointments each day and continue to offer obstetric and anaesthetic services locally.
We have also welcomed our 2014 Parallel Rural Community Curriculum students Emily and Jennifer and they will study with us throughout the year, culminating in exams in November. We hope they both enjoy their experience.
As we have done in previous years, we will continue to host interns and registered medical officers (RMOs) this year. In addition, we have 3 medical students being hosted for 4 or 6 week placements and a John Flynn Scholarship student for 2 or 3 week placements several times throughout the year. All of these placements provide valuable education opportunities for young people who are training (and being encouraged) for a future in rural general practice. We really appreciate that our patient population so readily accepts these people into our practices and allows them the opportunity to meet you and learn from you.
Flu clinics are currently underway and patients have enthusiastically taken advantage of these again this year. Our reception and nursing staff can advise you on booking for these clinics.
Childhood immunizations are an important part of the preventative healthcare services that we provide at Bridge Clinic. Don’t forget to check your child’s immunization record and ensure you book a time with your GP to keep these up to date.
Hope you are able to make your health your number one priority.
