Ascot Vale Health Group is a family General Practice consisting of eight Doctors including two registrars (three of these Doctors have been in practice together for over 30 years) and we have been together as a team for many years, proving a friendly and comfortable environment to work in. We offer three supervisors (Dr Michael Skehan, Dr Peter Byrne and Dr Peter Unger) and two practice nurses (Mon – Fri) to assist with health care assessments, wound care, spirometry, immunisations, care plans, minor procedures etc. Billing procedures are mixed with DVA, private, Workcover, TAC and bulk billing (bulk-billing is available for those on pension/health care cards for appointments made prior to 5.00pm Mon-Fri only – fees apply at all other times).
We operate on a rotating roster, which is evenly distributed between all doctors, and have full-time reception staff for continuity.
Three of our GP’s are involved with Aged Care servicing five local aged care facilities – registrars are welcome to attend visits, if you have an interest, but scheduled rounds are not compulsory. Ascot Vale Health Group is a purpose built facility allowing smooth ‘day to day’ functioning. Our patient demographic is wide and varied, therefore, giving registrars ample exposure to a diverse patient base. We are able to offer registrars easily accessible Supervisors, dedicated/uninterrupted education/teaching time, thorough orientation and we are negotiable on days/hours etc ensuring both registrar and practice needs are met.
Our aim is to provide registrars with a friendly but most importantly, a supportive environment. We aim to be flexible in helping meet your needs and we hope to make your stay comfortable, enjoyable and facilitate your educational development.
