About Us

The Practice

Adelaide Health Care opened in 1999 as an independent association of five General Practitioners. We remain proudly doctor owned and operated.

We now have seventeen General Practitioners working at the Practice, many of these GPs have postgraduate training and experience in special interest areas such as skin checks and procedures, women’s health, pregnancy and postnatal care, mental health care, chronic disease management, and allergic disorders. We work collaboratively with highly skilled Primary Health Care Nurses and a dedicated administrative team who are essential to our team approach.

We provide high quality primary health services to people who live, work or study in the city or nearby suburbs. In addition to the more traditional approach to the medical care of illness, we promote better health by focusing on illness prevention and improving physical and emotional well-being. We support patients to learn about their health and healthy living.

We are a fully accredited practice in accordance with the standards of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).

Inclusiveness

Adelaide Health Care is committed to equitable and inclusive access to health care free from bias relating to sexuality, gender, or cultural background, and we celebrate diversity.

In particular we welcome Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients, LGBTIQ patients and people of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to our practice community

Teaching

We have been an accredited training practice for GP Registrars since 2003. These Registrars are qualified doctors who have completed their hospital based postgraduate years and are training in the specialty of General Practice. We work closely with GPEx, the GP training provider for South Australia. A number of the GPs at Adelaide Health Care are Medical Educators and/or Supervisors for GP training. At times we have nursing students and medical students undertaking placements at the Practice.

Acknowledgement of the Kaurna people and country

Adelaide Health Care acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this nation. We acknowledge the Kaurna nation, the traditional custodians of the lands on which our general practice is located and where we conduct our business. We pay our respects to Kaurna ancestors and Elders, past and present. Adelaide Health Care is committed to honouring Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich contribution to society.

Sustainability at Adelaide Health Care

We aim to reduce our reliance on paper and disposable products  and divert materials from landfill to various recycling programs. This is an ongoing project, changes made so far include:

  • Solar panels were installed at the clinic in 2016.
  • Segregated bins for landfill/recycling/soft plastics/biowaste.
  • Used batteries are being collected for correct disposal.
  • BioCups in the waiting room.
  • ’Who Gives A Crap’ toilet paper, which is made from recycled materials. The company donates 50% of their profits to help build toilets for those in need.

We are concerned about the health impacts of climate change and strive to be an environmentally friendly practice. There are more changes to come as we build knowledge, awareness and accessibility within the practice in order to ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’.
