Yesterday You Said Tomorrow

Half way through the week…did you know what some GPs are thinking?

You’re a Great GP

You’ve studied and trained

You’re here to help!

But who is here to help you?

Those things you didn’t train for

When your computer doesn’t work

When your receptionist books appointments through your lunch break

Who will look after patients when you’re on holiday?

Who will keep you working safely during COVID?

PartridgeGP is here to answer all of these questions for you!

Don’t put your safety, income, and professionalism second

Put yourself first – call PartridgeGP on 8295 3200

Here We Are: 5 Stories That Got Us To Now

We live in strange days. Humans have always made sense of their lived experience through stories. Here are some, courtesy of the excellent Morgan Housel (yes, this guy).

Three days after Ronald Reagan was inaugurated in 1981, New York City Council President Carol Bellamy joined a group of speakers at a luncheon to discuss the country’s future.

The group tried to make sense of a world that was hardly recognizable from a generation before.

Familiar? Read on!

Things that make you go hmmm

When it all turns to custard, as they say in New Zealand, one of the safest places on Earth (as I type), your GP is there for you. Your GP is, really, your best insurance.

If you’re a patient, looking for a great GP, PartridgeGP is here to help you, safely and well. You can book a face to face or telehealth consult right here.

If you’re a great GP/Allied Health Professional wanting PartridgeGP to provide you awesome services, facilities, and team so you can serve patients to the best of your ability, contact us here, here, or call Mrs Hayley Roberts on 08 8295 3200.

Stay safe. Use your GP!

Body Shaming

We all know that COVID19 is around. Luckily in SA we have stuck to

Social Distancing
Hand Washing
Cough Etiquette

And so we have the following stats!

July 8 – well done so far SA

But those extra pounds and kilos have snuck in where even COVID19 hasn’t reached. PartridgeGP is here to help and therefore we posted this on our Facebook page:

Facebook – 13 July

The text was as follows:

COVID clearance certificates and PartridgeGP

Did you know medical certificates expire? They have an end date! So when an employer or other entity asks for a clearance certificate, this is what we are going to write:

Dear Employer,

The whole point of a medical certificate is to certify someone unwell or unfit. This is why there is a beginning date AND an end date. At the end date, the patient is no longer certified unwell/unfit. I have enclosed the negative COVID results and you will note your employees certificate has reached its end date. I further enclose professional advice from our professional organisation in regard to this. It follows that the certificate of ‘clearance’ you are suggesting is unprofessional and those who would provide one are acting similarly.

I hope this information finds you well.

Regards

Doctor Nick
Specialist GP

Hope this helps! If you are still unwell or need any further information, say hi to your PartridgeGP and book in here for a phone or face to face consult!

Divided, the Empire must unite…

Romance of the Three Kingdoms is
one of China’s four Great Classical Novels. The title of this blog post is more fully:

The empire, long divided, must unite; long united, must divide. Thus it has ever been.

PartridgeGP is based on a triple promise that we will be great for our patients and our community, GPs and our staff, and for the owners and the practice. Further, we will provide a comprehensive, professional, empowering, and sustainable service at all times.

Our friendly neighbourhood pharmacist sent this to me (see below). He was a little worried about the threat to his full service pharmacy and also to great General Practice.

Hmmmm

Now different companies will have different service offerings at different levels of the market. Think Porsche and Hyundai. Both very acceptable to different groups. Maybe even acceptable to the same group at different times. I’m not sure they are competitors.

I put my thoughts down here:

Upon reflection…

So keep playing to your strengths, keep doing your best, and unite not divide.

If you want to join a team that’s here to guide and help our valued patients, give Dr Nick Tellis or Dr Nick Mouktaroudis a call at PartridgeGP on 8295 3200!

All of our doctors here at PartridgeGP are fully qualified ‘Fellows’ (or are studying towards this) holding a specialist qualification with either the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM) or both (3-4 years of full time study and 3 exams on top of an undergraduate university medical degree and supervised trainee ‘intern’ year in a hospital). This is our minimum specialist standard and we may have other qualifications and skills.

 

 

Our Fellows provide supervision and advice to our Registrars and you may find that they are called in to consult with the Registrar on your case. ‘Registrars’ are qualified doctors who have completed their hospital training and are now embarking on their General Practice training. Some may already have other qualifications in medical or other fields.

 

 

We also supervise and teach Medical Students from Flinders University. They are still studying to become doctors. All of us – Fellows, Registrars, and Medical Students – make up the Clinical Team here at PartridgeGP with our excellent Practice Nurses. We all uphold the highest standards of privacy, confidentiality, professionalism, and clinical practice.

Welcoming Dr Phillip Maddocks to PartridgeGP

 

 

 

Dr Phillip Maddocks commenced his specialist General Practice training with PartridgeGP in February 2020. Raised in Adelaide, he studied and practiced in NSW, and then returned to Adelaide earlier this year. Becoming an accomplished GP has always been his career goal and he is eager to commence community-based work. I’m passionate about paediatrics, emergency medicine, sports medicine, and teaching. Prior to my career in medicine I held numerous leadership positions across both business and sport, attaining many skills which are transferable to working in medical teams.

Dr Phil has quickly settled in and has hit the ground running with the rest of our Great Team here at PartridgeGP!
