The highest standard of patient care and medical services.
Heyfield is a small rural community 200+ km south east of Melbourne. The Heyfield Medical Centre provides the highest standard of patient care and medical services to over 3,000 patients and is located half an hour from the large regional centres of Traralgon and Sale.
Near Lake Glenmaggie on the road to Licola and the High Country the doctors at HMC run as an acute care practice incorporating a holistic approach toward diagnosis and management of illness.
The Practice is co-located with Heyfield Hospital that offers 10 standard beds, 52 beds of aged care (30 low care and 22 high care). The hospital is a private not-for-profit community owned facility.
Access to appointments:
ACUTE ACCESS APPOINTMENTS
We offer a range of options to enable optimal quality access to a Doctor.
ON THE DAY
Appointments are kept and opened up ON THE DAY for acute presentations requiring a standard appointment.
ON CALL DOCTOR
The on call doctor will have spaces left for urgent problems where the patient is acutely unwell, these are not available until that consulting session starts.
Each day (when required), this is a short appointment only and should be restricted to only one issue.
You may have to wait and you will not be given priority over patients who had their appointment pre booked.
No prescriptions for narcotics or benzodiazepines will be written and this should not replace your normal review with your GP.
SUPERVISED MEDICAL STUDENTS
We host senior medical students from both Monash and Melbourne University who are “parallel consulted” (supervised) by a Senior Doctor.
All senior doctors working in the Practice will be involved in this supervision on most days they are consulting.
Making an appointment with a student who is being supervised by your doctor of choice is another way to access them when they are already booked out.
This Clinic provides an after hours service for this community with a service that is coordinated through the Heyfield Hospital. This is for urgent issues only.
The on call doctor can be contacted by calling the Hospital after hours. Calls are triaged by the Hospital and advice may be given by the Nursing Sister in consultation with the Doctor on call. Click here for clinic hours
