Medical Director Note

Below you will find details of the upcoming Rural doctors Master class . I attended this last year and found it to be one of the better skills updates I've been too. I note this year’s program looks just as stimulating.

Summit Health was pleased to be successful in receiving funding from the PHN for ongoing Mental health services.These programs have been delivered for many years by us and we thank you for your feedback prior to our applications success.

We are delighted to see the addition of a second ENT Surgeon to our area with Dr Sam Boase about to start in association with Dr Theo Athanasiadis.

Please check the updated Summit Health Centre website for contact details of consulting services.
