Hamilton Medical Group
The Hamilton Medical Group has been in existence and serving the local community and surrounding areas since the 1940’s. General Practitioners and a Consultant Physician provide patients with a wide range of skills and specialities from one location.
Our Group offers surgery hours for appointments, and a full after hours service. Duty doctors are rostered on call to cover these services. For after hours, the practice uses an answering service in Melbourne. Patients still ring a local telephone number, but are diverted to Melbourne where a message is taken and forwarded to the duty doctor. Therefore patients have access to medical assistance 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
Our consulting rooms (The A.D Matheson Clinic) are situated within the grounds of Western District Health Service (Hamilton Base Hospital). The close proximity to the hospital not only allows our doctors to see in-patients more easily and quickly, especially in an emergency situation, but it also allows some of our doctors to provide anaesthetic and obstetric services to the hospital.
The Hamilton Medical Group offers a range of services such as GP Management Plans for patients with chronic or terminal diseases, Dieticians and Diabetic Educators. We also have a number of Specialists who visit and consult from the rooms. Working alongside the Western District Health Service we are able to help patients access Allied Health Services, District Nurses, Physiotherapy, Pain Management, Podiatry and Palliative Care.
The newly renovated building provides the doctors and staff with a modern space to work in and our patients with a calm, relaxing place to receive their health care. Telehealth consults have been implemented. This new method of consulting saves patients having to travel to see a Specialist and involves the patients GP in their care.
The Hamilton Medical Group is a teaching clinic. We have Medical Students from Flinders University and Deakin University each year at the clinic and GP Registrars from Murray City Country Coast GP Training.
The current team of dedicated health care professionals and staff strive to achieve the best possible outcome for all patients attending the Hamilton Medical Group.
