Medicine on Blackwood - Your Medical Home
We are conveniently located at 24 – 28 Blackwood Street in Mitchelton – next door to the IGA Supermarket. Parking is right at the door and disabled access ensures an easy visit.
Within the practice or an easy stroll from us, you will find a compounding pharmacy, diagnostic imaging, pathology, physiotherapy, psychologist, dentist, remedial massage therapist, dietician, podiatrist, audiologist, exercise physiologist and naturopath.
Our modern, well equipped practice has a comfortable waiting area with a colourful and enticing children's play area to occupy the most demanding tiny tots!
We are sympathetic to the needs of teenagers and young adults who may feel unable to discuss their physical, emotional or mental health needs with their families. We provide an approachable environment where young people can find confidential non-judgmental health assistance.
Together we provide quality care for everyone and follow the ethos of providing a Medical Home for our patients.
What is a Medical Home?
Simply put, it is the general practice chosen by you, the patient, to be responsible for your ongoing, comprehensive, whole-person medical care.
At Medicine on Blackwood, patients and their families enjoy a continuing relationship with a particular GP with support from a practice team and other clinical services in the 'medical neighbourhood'.
The medical home coordinates the care delivered by all members of your care team and when required this may include hospital inpatient care. Our focus as your medical home is to ensure you experience integrated health care.
This patient-centred model for health care is effective, efficient and welcomed by patients and providers.
You can learn more about "The Medical Home" by visiting The Australian Centre for the Medical Home at medicalhome.org.au.
