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

Patient-centred care – what is it?

Patient-centred care is something that all Australians should benefit from.

According to the Australian Commission on Quality and Safety Health Care, patient-centred care is care that is respectful of, and responsive to, the preferences, needs and values of patients. The dimensions of patient-centred care include:

  1. Respect
  2. Emotional support
  3. Physical comfort
  4. Information and communication
  5. Continuity and Transition
  6. Care Coordination
  7. Involvement of Family and Carers
  8. Access to Care

Benefits of patient-centred care

Research shows that patient-centred care improves patients’ experience of their care. When health professionals, managers, patients, families and carers work together, quality and safety of health care increases, costs of health care decrease, health professionals better enjoy their work and patient’s experience of their care improves. (Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (2011), Patient-centred care: Improving quality and safety through partnerships with patients and consumers, ACSQHC, Sydney).

How do we get there?

So how does this work in practice? We truly can’t go past Oregon’s core attributes of Patient-Centred Primary Care Homes.

Dr Jaspreet Saini PCMH Principles

I believe that all involved in the delivery of health care should read this on a regular basis. I truly do believe this is the gold standard. This is what my patients demand of me, and anything less is unacceptable – to them and to me.
