QUEANBEYAN'S $5 million GP
Super Clinic was officially opened last
Federal Minister for Health Nicola
Roxon joined Federal Member for
Eden Monaro Mike Kelly to unveil a
plaque to mark the clinic's establish-
''Already this clinic is taking up to
40 more appointments a day than the
old clinic, clearly showing that Quean-
beyan needed better health infrastruc-
ture to help local patients get access to
doctors and allied health profes-
sionals,'' Ms Roxon said.
"The new team here at the Queanbe-

level of integrated, multidisciplinary,
team-based, patient-centred healthcare
all under one roof."
The clinic has been operating since
June 14 and incorporates various
services, including GPs, nurses and
specialists, as well as a range of allied
health professionals, such as physioth-

x-ray, pathology and a pharmacy.
These services will help take the
pressure off the hospital.
Dr Kelly said 80 per cent of patients
who went to the hospital's emergency
department should instead have been
seen by a bulk billing GP.
The clinic also provides tele-
medicine and e-health services, mean-

their GP via video conferencing, if
they are unable to leave home. It has
extended hours of opening -- including
weekends -- and offers bulk billing.
Clinic GP Ross Hendry said there
were about 15 doctors currently work-

recruitment process for more staff was
going quite well.
''At present we've got an added
nursing staff, three new doctors start-

pathologist, audiologist, a cardiology
services and a cosmetic physician,'' he
Dr Hendry said pathology and the
pharmacy had been operating since
June and a GP registrar, medical
student and nursing student were
already working at the clinic.
In May The Chronicle reported the
facility was struggling to find a
radiologist, but Dr Hendry said the
organisation was currently in negotia-
tions with three radiology firms to fill
