It's been a long time coming but it looks like it will be a reality very soon. I'm opening Canberra's first multidisciplinary sports medicine clinic. Each practitioner will be independent and most of them own their own practices as well.
It's a place where experienced practitioners from different disciplines can come together and discuss the management of patients to optimise their care. We'll be involved with teaching allied health students as well as working on research projects so we're on the cutting edge of new developments. We'll also be helping to set up some public multidisciplinary clinics for special populations.
Because we are all independent it means that if you already have an allied health practitioner or surgeon or sports doctor or physician you can still access our services and we would be more than happy to work with the practitioners and GP who you feel are right for you.
In the team so far besides myself there will be a physiotherapist, podiatrist, dietician and orthopaedic surgeon.
The best thing? Free accessible parking! Plus a friendly reception team and online appointment bookings.
Stay tuned for more details very soon!
