Camperdown is situated in the Corangamite Shire in the Western Districts of Victoria. Centrally located within easy commutes of Geelong, Melbourne, Ballarat and Warrnambool. A stone’s throw to the Great Ocean Road and numerous areas of interest.
The Camperdown Clinic is a family owned clinic with five part-time GPs each with their own consulting room. Our patient profile is from birth to patients over 100 years of age. The GPs are supported by Practice Nurses in both the treatment room and with chronic disease care. A pathology collection centre is located within the clinic and the pharmacy is a short two minute stroll.
Our GPs provide Visiting Medical Officer services to the local hospital including obstetric services supported by a professional team of midwives within the hospital. The Camperdown Hospital has an Urgent Care facility plus level 3 obstetric and level 2 neonatal capability and a Residential Aged Care Facility. The hospital is a 22 bed hospital with an active operating theatre supported by visiting specialists whilst the majority of anaesthetics are provided by the towns GPs. There is also X-Ray and pathology services in the hospital as well as a strong allied health team to ensure clinical best practice is provided.
GP registrar training is undertaken via the RACGP and ACRRM programs. Education continues with our relationship with Deakin University and their Rural Doctor training whilst there are plenty of opportunities to undertake CPD activities.
An on-call service is shared between the two GP clinics in town with a senior GP always allocated as ‘second on call’ to support registrars during this period.
