North Ryde Medical Centre is a health care facility which brings together independent doctors and allied health practitioners (psychology, physiotherapy, podiatry, lactation consultant) into one convenient location so they can serve the community’s health needs. The doctors and allied health practitioners, supported by the nurses and admin team, strive to treat every person in an ethical, non-judgemental, and inclusive manner.
The GPs consulting at North Ryde Medical Centre honour the origins and long-standing traditions of General Practice medicine, aiming to provide person-centred, continuing, comprehensive, and empathic care in all aspects of their patients’ health. Providing care from the newborn to the elderly, serving all facets of the community, and treating the person as a whole, are at the heart of that profession which is so proudly called General Practice.
With all the doctors being recognised by the Medical Board of Australia as Specialist medical practitioners (such as Fellows of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners), or Registrars (who are fully-qualified doctors undergoing speciality training and supervision), and the Allied Health Practitioners being fully registered with their respective regulatory boards, the community can trust that they are being treated to the highest standard.
Whilst maintaining professionalism, all the practitioners’ down-to-earth, patient-centred approach means they all value good communication and rapport with their patients, and value the privilege of getting to know how a person’s health fits into their life story.
The doctors and allied health practitioners consulting at the practice are all independent practitioners and not employees, and therefore are able to treat their patients with full professional autonomy, without the need to answer to any other stakeholders. All decisions are in their patient’s best interests.
Navigating the health system and deciding what treatment is best for you and your family can be complex and confusing, and so your GP at North Ryde Medical Centre can help you co-ordinate your care, so that your GP can become your “medical home”.
No matter who you are, no matter what stage of health, and no matter what stage of life, all people have a right to physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing.
So who is your GP?
