Expect more

Expect more

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,

But ALSO

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,

AND

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?

…..

Tips:

✅ 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

Healthy Ageing at Rosedale Medical Practice

Healthy Ageing at Rosedale Medical Practice

We had the pleasure of welcoming Primary Care Nurse Consultant Jane Bollen and GP Dr Chris Bollen to teach at our practice yesterday.

Jane and Dr Chris have a special interest in the care of older people, and taught us about healthy ageing, with a specific focus on identifying, preventing and managing frailty in our day to day practice.

Jane previously worked at Allenby Gardens Family Practice in Adelaide running a nurse led (team-based care) “Healthy Ageing Clinic”.

We learnt many valuable lessons that will form part of our quality improvement initiatives as a practice, and that will help us in achieving our objective of “keeping older Australians independent and safe in their own homes”.

Behind the Scenes – Data Driven Improvement

Behind the Scenes – Data Driven Improvement

Rosedale Medical Practice prides itself on providing “high performing primary care” with four key principles at its foundation:

✅ Engaged Leadership
✅ Data-driven Improvement that respects the privacy and confidentiality of our patients
✅ Empanelment
✅ Team-Based Care

By the end of April 2020, we provided influenza vaccines to 79.03% of our active patients over the age of 65. This means that we exceeded the average for our region by a solid 20.25%.

What does this mean for you?

Your journey doesn’t stop when you leave our practice. Neither should your health care. Our ‘Care Outside the Box’ philosophy is a commitment to reach outside the four walls of our practice, and provide you with all the resources that you and your family need to make the right decisions for your health.

We will continue to share our approach with you through updates to our website as well as our Facebook posts. Stay tuned.

Best wishes,

Team Rosedale
