Tanjil Place Medical was established in 1994 and moved to its current premises in the centre of town in 2007. We have 10 General Practitioners both full time and part time. They cover a variety of special interests including chronic disease management, aged care, palliative care, women’s health and skin cancer surveillance and treatment. The medical staff are supported by practice nurses, who not only staff the treatment room but also run clinics in chronic disease management, diabetes education, women’s health and ante natal.
Visiting specialists include two physicians (Dr Brett Forge and Dr Alistair Wright) and a paedeatrician (Dr Charlie Hamilton). We also have various allied health practitioners who consult at the practice and they include, a physiotherapist, two psychologists and an audiologist. Two Pathology collection centres and Xray services are co-located with the clinic.
Doctors from Tanjil Place Medical participate in a shared after hours roster through the Moe After Hours Medical Service located in Fowler Street Moe. A doctor or nurse is available for advice or consultation until 10.30pm. Telephone (03) 5127 9111. Alternatively after clinic hours you can contact the After Hours Doctor on 0467 891 558 for medical advice. This service may attract an out of pocket after hours service fee of $150.
Home Visits are provided to regular patients by arrangement with their doctor. Please discuss your requirements with Reception.
Our Centre participates in state/territory reminder systems which inform you of recurring healthcare issues such as annual check ups, care planning and immunisations. Please advise Reception if you do not wish to receive reminders. Patients will be contacted for recall where clinically indicated.
Most issues are best dealt with in consultation with you doctor. If you do need to speak to a doctor the receptionist will take a message and the call will be returned, usually later in the day. If the matter is urgent you should inform the receptionist and she will speak to a doctor or nurse at the time of your call.
Test results can be obtained in a booked consultation. Referrals to specialists must be made during a consultation and will not be provided from a phone request. In unavoidable circumstances Doctors may provide repeat referral or scripts, however this is done at the Doctors discretion and may attract a fee.
