Wyndham Vale GP Super Clinic Opens

Leader of the Opposition, Bill Shorten, Shadow Minister for Health, Catherine King and Member for Lalor, Joanne Ryan today welcomed the official opening of the new Wyndham Vale GP Super Clinic.

Labor recognised the need to plug the gap between local GPs and hospitals when in government. This super clinic is being delivered thanks to a commitment by Labor to provide access to after-hours services and ensure high quality healthcare is available in growth areas.

This super clinic will co-locate multidisciplinary primary care, provide bulk billed and after hours services and reduce the load on local hospitals.

The super clinic will cut waiting times and work in tandem with private practice and the South Western Melbourne Medicare Local to make seeing a doctor easier and quicker and to provide high quality primary care.

‘This is great news for the community of Wyndham Vale. It’s great news for the region and a much needed facility in this area of high growth. With approximately 70 babies born each week, 15,000 new residents in the last two years and a population of 200,000 expected by the end of this financial year’ said Joanne Ryan.

‘Labor invested $15 million towards establishing the Wyndham Vale GP Super Clinic, which is now providing bulk-billed primary care services to people of this community, encouraging them to seek care when they need it’.

‘None of these services would have been delivered by the Liberal Party and are all services that are at risk thanks to Tony Abbott’s plans to introduce a GP Tax and abolish Medicare Locals’ said Catherine King.

Ms Ryan said “ISIS Primary Care has driven this project locally, taken on the challenge and excelled. The building is beautiful, functional and has plenty of room for future expansion as the needs of our community evolve”.
