Surf Coast Home Doctor is seeking the services of VR general practitioners for our home visit service, operating on the Great Ocean Road in the Torquay region of Victoria. We are an innovative GP service, bringing the Doctor back to the family and the first service of its kind in Australia. Rather than being trapped inside a dull surgery, why not spend the day travelling around this beautiful part of the country, driving along the coastal roads between patients and taking in the amazing views. Our GPs get to see patients in their home environment and rediscover the immense satisfaction that comes from becoming a traditional family GP again.
Surf Coast Home Doctor is an accredited innovative GP service bringing the Doctor back to the family and is the first service of its kind in Australia. Established in 2012, we provide a home-based GP service that is advantageous to both the patient and the GP. It enables patients to avoid leaving the house when they are feeling at their worst or waiting in GP clinics for long periods, worrying about being exposed to further illnesses. The GPs get to see patients in their home environment and become a traditional family GP again. This helps aid management decisions and, from our experience to date, both patients and GPs prefer this method of healthcare delivery. Our mission is to provide comprehensive, convenient, outstanding, skilled, up to date, medical care to the Surf Coast community. We aim to treat all of our patients with compassion, respect & dignity, listen to their needs without judgement and provide a high standard of professional care in a confidential manner and with a holistic approach. By always putting our patients first and listening and communicating effectively with them we can respond appropriately to their individual needs and ensure their peace of mind.
