The Doctors and Support Staff

We introduce you to the doctors who consult from Firle Medical Centre

The independent General practitioners at Firle Medical Centre are all fellows of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. It is this body that determines that all General Practitioners are at a standard to practise unsupervised in General Practice.  

General Practice is a complex specialty.

All the independent General practitioners are free to practise in their own way. The benefit of being independent and not employed is that non-medical people and other doctors are unable to influence, directly or indirectly, what occurs in the consulting room. It does mean that each doctor has a different style, different expertise, and different philosophies on management. Our independent General practitioners support each other when one is away, however, some requests can only be actioned by your regular GP. Depending on the experience of your doctor, some routinely prescribe medication that others don’t and some have clinical and surgical competencies that others don’t. Some doctors work slower than others, some work faster and some will refer a problem to a specialist whilst others may have the experience to manage the same problem at a specialist level. This reveals the complexity and diversity of General Practice and the more doctors a practice has, the more diversity it has and the more services it can provide for you in one environment with a shared medical record. It is strongly recommended that you develop a relationship with one of the doctors to strengthen the doctor-patient relationship and ensure that the medical service continues to meet your expectations.
