Thanks for checking us out at Westgate Health Cooperative, located in the inner West of Melbourne.
We are different. We are a Not For Profit health centre, offering GP, Nursing and Allied Health Services – and even a Dental chair. We believe in providing affordable health care, so we bulk bill, and we teach our doctors how to bill using MBS, so that they are making a fair and reasonable income. We’ve been around for 40 years. We have a long history of training fabulous Registrars. We have a sunny tea room, the best fish and chip shop next door, and we do a coffee run every morning (we share the shout around). Our doctors are amazing – ethical, hard working, caring, dedicated, thorough, patient – as are our Nurses, Receptionists and Admin Staff. We work as a team. We communicate with each other. There’s free parking. You will get a proper induction and supervision that is in accordance with the guidelines. Our Board are very professional, and support us to be the best we can be.
What we are not – we are not a sausage-factory bulk billing service. While we offer bulk billing, this is in line with our ethos of affordable health care. Most of our patients are with us for years, and we do not take “walk-in” bookings. We are well known in the community and have an outstanding reputation for the level of care we provide. We get regular feedback to that effect. We also often get government grants because of our community focus.
If you really want to learn, grow and thrive in a friendly, ethical, professional environment, we would love to meet you. We are looking for Registrars who live in the West, as we hope one day you will make us your forever home.
