Multidisciplinary Teams in 2020: Team members complete patient care
HHMP Multidisciplinary Care
In the early days of HHMP, the GP was expected to do it all. Our new Multidisciplinary model of care means that GPs now work in a team.
Our new video highlights the HHMP multidisciplinary team journey.
Hunters Hill Medical Practice is Australia’s oldest continuously operating medical practice with a history tracing back to the 1860s. Medical care at the time was very different than it is today. Doctors were often solo operators who were expected to know and fix everything. Some allied health and specialist fields that we now take for granted did not even exist!
At Hunters Hill Medical Practice, we not only value the role of all members of the health care team , we also understand the patient’s desire for quality and convenience. As such we have collaborated with trusted allied health and specialist colleagues to create a multidisciplinary team that can provide co-located services to our patients. This brings enormous advantages with regards to accessibility, time efficiency and communication.
Co-located Allied Health
- Speech Pathology
Co-located Specialist Services
- Orthopaedic Surgery
- Plastic Surgery
- Vascular Surgery
- Paediatric Respiratory and Sleep Physician
- Respiratory and Sleep Medicine
- Upper GI Surgery
- Colorectal Surgery
With some planning and collaboration we help our patients achieve better outcomes. A typical example is that of a patient who may be booked in to see the orthopaedic surgeon for post operative review; the surgeon may call in their GP to discuss the wound review and then the physiotherapist to plan out the rehabilitation. Another example might be someone needing to see the cardiologist and endocrinologist for their heart disease and diabetes which could be organised on the same day as their GP review and blood test.
Multidisciplinary team care is the best way to delivery complete patient care.
