The Location

http://www.southaustralia.com/en/places-to-go/yorke-peninsula

Yorke peninsula has over 700km of coastline, and is described as one big coastal playground, with plenty of things to see and do for every member of the family.

Minlaton is a country town centrally located on the Yorke Peninsula approximately 200 kilometres from Adelaide.

The town is close to coastal areas which are approximately 30 kilometres away to both the east & west. Coastal towns within this region are noted for their excellent fishing catches from the beach, jetty or by boat.

Minlaton itself has a population of about 1,000 people but it also services surrounding towns. The surrounding towns bring Minlaton’s catchment area to approximately 5,000 people.

The town is well serviced with primary, secondary and kindergarten schools, sporting facilities including a sporting club & 18 hole golf course. Sports on offer include tennis, hockey, basketball, netball, football, indoor soccer, table tennis, polocrosse, cricket, bowls & golf.

The Practice

The Medical Centre is a well-established General Practice which is highly regarded by the local community and is involved in the teaching of rural orientated general practice to medical students.

The Centre has an arrangement with Country Health SA to operate and manage a 24 hour Accident & Emergency Unit. This Unit is attached to the Medical Centre and the service it provides is highly valued by the local community given the fact that there is no hospital in the town. The nearest hospital is the Yorketown Hospital which is approximately 30 kilometres away. All the Centre’s doctors have admitting rights to the Yorketown Hospital.

The Centre currently has 4 general practitioners one of whom will be leaving in early 2016 . It also employs registered nurses who work both at the Centre and in the Accident & Emergency Unit. Both the doctors and nurses are required to participate in the relevant on call rosters.

They cater for a wide range of patients from the new born to the elderly as well as any emergency case which presents at the Accident & Emergency Unit.

There are also a wide range of visiting specialists and allied health services that visit on a sessional basis

The Centre is fully accredited with AGPAL. The GP component of the Centre is open 5 days a week whilst the A&E component is open 7 days a week.

The Practice has a key teaching and training focus and all doctors are required to participate in the supervision of medical undergraduates during their rotational placements

The Company

Currently they own & run 6 General Practices. Two of these are located in the Adelaide CBD, 3 are located in the northern suburbs of Adelaide and 1 is located on the Yorke Peninsula in rural South Australia. In addition they own a purpose-built Teaching & Training facility and an eHealth Business Unit.
