Robinson Street Medical Centre – Camperdown
Robinson Street Medical Centre provides health care to an active community, with about 3500 people living within the township and another 4500 in the surrounding district.
The GPs provide a comprehensive procedural rural practice through their work at the Medical Centre and in their roles as Visiting Medical Officers at the Camperdown Hospital, Merindah Lodge Nursing Home and Sunnyside Nursing Home.
In addition to training registrars, they partner with Deakin University to provide supervision to medical students with a fourth year student joining the team each year. Students from John Flynn Scholarship and nursing students also regularly join the team.
A busy, vibrant, attractive town, Camperdown is 200km west of Melbourne. Volcanic activity some 22,000 years ago formed the lakes, craters and hills that characterise the landscape of the district. Sheep, beef, dairy, and crop farming are the primary industries.
Camperdown is 50km from the Great Ocean Road at Port Campbell, 70km from the Otway Ranges, 70km from the regional city of Warrnambool and about 160km from Halls Gap (The Grampians).
