Are your expectations of your general practice high enough?
Here’s what I’ve learnt from talking to the most innovative, caring and compassionate practice owners and leaders around the world:
General practices are an amazing powerhouse for not only providing you compassionate, comprehensive and personalised health care when you visit,
Providing proactive outreach care that is targeted at keeping you well even when you’re not physically at the practice.
At Rosedale Medical Practice West Pennant Hills, it’s an approach we call “Care Outside the Box”, and something we strive to deliver on each and every day
Hint: We have a long way to go, and we aim to get even better at getting better.
Here’s what we think great care should look like:
“…care that warms your heart as soon as you enter,
extends well beyond the four walls of our practice.”
What is YOUR practice doing for you?
Is it time to raise the bar?
Will you demand better for you and your family?
✅ A great relationship with your general practice is a wise investment in your health, as well as the health of your family
✅ GPs can help you with a broad range of health concerns, including your physical, mental and emotional health
✅ A great way to plan your first consult is to ask for a general health check

Where do I start? There was so much value in this fireside chat with Kelly Chard, Merryn Thomae and Dinesh Palipana.
2020 has been a really hard year. It has “helped us examine our values and ask some really hard questions.” (Dr Palipana).
We’ve seen a cultural shift towards becoming a “caring community”, better able to care for ourselves in addition to our patients and clients. 2020 has fostered a “new ability to reach out and ask for help and ask for support” (Dr Thomae)
We’ve also seen a paradigm shift in the way we see health care teams. In health care team 3.0, our accountants and IT professionals are important members of our TEAM. They play a key role in helping us to understand our business environment, respond to threats and opportunities, and take even better care of our patients by expanding our focus to both business AND clinical excellence.
And this was just a small part of our conversation.

Feeling so #grateful to receive this lovely message from our medical student. Thank you to our team and our wonderful patients for being so welcoming and for helping to create an environment of learning for our future generation of doctors. We believe that by positively impacting every person that we meet, we create a cascade of events that helps to deliver a better future for all of us.
“I can’t describe the impact you and the Rosedale team have had on me both personally and professionally; I was blessed to spend my final rotation with all of you and you gave me so much to reflect on during these holidays… Thank you for so selflessly mentoring me :)”
Seriously, there are some things that we do in health care that are just too prescriptive. Occasionally, we get health care so wrong that we do silly things – like waking patients up to give them sleeping tablets.
Sometimes, breaking the rules is exactly what’s needed to improve patients’ experience of their care.
The Leadership Alliance (Alliance), convened by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, consists of approximately 40 North American hospitals, associations, and other care systems committed to delivering on the promise of the “Triple Aim”
In 2016, organisations forming the Alliance asked this question of patients and staff:
“If you could break or change any rule in service of a better care experience for patients or staff, what would it be?”
Below, Berwick et al list the top 10 most frequent suggestions.
