New Psychiatry Service
We have been able to secure the additional services of a psychiatrist at the Summit Health Centre.
Dr Ben Smith will commence late July/early August initially for 1 session per week. He’s a generalist and sees people over 18 years of age . He is new to the SA Health system having recently arrived from the UK.
In the first instance he will be taking referrals only from GPcare whilst he learns the ropes of the Medicare system however this will then be opened to all practices consistent with our goal to use the SHC to bring services up to this region for GP referral.
GPcare After Hours
We are awaiting a response to our bid to the Country SA PHN for the after-hours funding we have received over the years to support the maintenance of this service. Once it comes through, we will follow-up on our commitment to develop a new remuneration framework that better rewards those GPs that have busy sessions - especially where we have not been able to source a second short-shift GP on weekends.
If we do not receive the funds (in excess of $100,000 is being sought) then we will still consider the above but we will also need to look at how we cover the after-hours period - particularly during the quieter periods - possibly by reducing or removing some weekday sessions.
We will let you know how it goes.
