Maxwell Street clinic has been undergoing some revamping to make the clinic more culturally inviting and appropriate.
Thanks to local artist Douglas Ah-See who has allowed us to use his artwork to create a digital wallpaper to use in the front reception area. It is a great addition to the building and a must see for the community!
We have welcome some new staff also, Troy Peckham – Transport Officer, Kacee Ryan – New Direction Aboriginal support worker, Kristy Lee Cornish- Medical receptionist returning from maternity leave after welcoming a beautiful baby boy!
Aidan Ryan and Denise Barwick have recently completed their Aboriginal Health Practitioner training and are now registered with AHPRA.
Aidan is also supporting visiting Pharmacist Fiona Ryan to do Home Medicine reviews in the community.
Once referrals are made by GP, Aidan will then organise to come out to patient’s home with Fiona and review medication. As a new incentive for patients once, this is completed with GP patient they will then receive a $40 fruit and veg voucher. Please call Aidan at the clinic for further details.
Clinic are also involved in National Bowel Screening Pilot that is just been rolled out across Australia.
Staff received training and will now be able to dispense bowel kits and support eligible patients to have national bowel screenings completed.
WE have also just had our second visit from Cardiologist Dr Katrina Adorini who has been busy seeing WACHS patients. Dr Adorini will continue to visit every second month.
