Active Health Portland was developed as part of the Federal Government’s GP Super Clinic Program. Our practice features state of the art facilities, experienced supervisors and a wealth of learning opportunities. Our GP trainees join Deakin medical students in the learning environment. As a result, our clinical team holds weekly face to face vertically integrated teaching. Group teaching is in addition to dedicated individual teaching sessions.
Active Health offer multiple services all under the one roof. Services include GP consults, Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Exercise Physiology, Counselling, Mental Health Nurse, Headspace consultations, Speech Pathology, Dietitian appointments and Diabetes Educator services. There is a fully functioning rehabilitation gym that holds regular exercise groups run by Exercise Physiologists.
Portland is a picturesque coastal town and a wonderful place to live, work and even raise a family. Our beautiful town offers the winning combination of coastal, rural and low density urban areas. The choice is yours – live by the sea, in town or on a farm. Today, Portland enjoys contemporary popularity derived from tourism. Fishing is the obvious pastime with a choice of breakwater, surf or river fishing with the harbour boasting one of the best boat ramps in Victoria. Water sports on offer include yachting, surfing, sail boarding and wave riding, canoeing and water skiing with the avid motorcyclists catered for on forest routes through nearby mountain locations. Whales are still popular, and throughout the winter months, can be viewed during the annual migration to warmer waters.
