More Brisbane residents can now access quality healthcare and experience a new and improved relationship with their GP, as SmartClinics expands from one to seven clinics in the Brisbane area.
SmartClinics has been providing quality healthcare in Chermside since 2011, and is well known by local Westfield shoppers for it’s eye-catching, modern look that sets it apart from traditional GP practices. It boasts a minimal wait time with 95% of patients being seen on time due to the cutting edge technology of Health Max – Australia’s first web-based booking system, designed and developed by SmartClinics and exclusive to SmartClinics and their patients only only.
The next suburb to benefit from SmartClinics’ services is Windsor, with the acquisition of Newmarket Road Family Practice in late 2014. The clinic will soon be refurbished to match the funky fresh SmartClinics brand with modern furnishings, a spacious interior and exciting play area for the kids.
Health First GP clinics located in West End, Arundel, Corinda, Ascot and Alexandra Hills have also recently joined the SmartClinics team, and will soon undergo some nip and tucks to freshen the clinics. More family medical Doctors will also be joining the team, making it even easier for patients to access quality healthcare. This growing network of care allows SmartClinics’ GP’s to access patient health records, shared via a secure program, meaning patients can benefit from continuity of care regardless of which clinic they attend. SmartClinics is set to expand further throughout South East Queensland in the next three years, with its sight set on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
The SmartClinics Family Medical Centre network aims to keep healthcare costs low for patients. Pension card holders and children under 12 are bulk-billed at all SmartClinics, during normal business hours, and receive significant discounts on consultation fees after-hours and on the weekend. Emergency Service Workers will also be bulk-billed as a ‘thank you’ for their service.
