Information for patients

 

About us

Perspective Medicine is a group of associated internal medicine physicians committed to providing high-quality and coordinated specialist medical care. Each physician working within this group conducts their own individual medical practice, but the administration is centralised for the convenience of patients and referrers. You may be referred to another member of the group depending on the care you require, or for reasons of availability for urgent issues.

Contact us

Our preferred means of contact for all enquiries whether they relate to appointments, payments, documentation or clinical issues is our privacy-compliant email address enquiries@perspectivemedicine.com.au. Written communication allows us to ensure that your questions are addressed accurately by the correct member of our team, and recorded for quality and audit purposes.

All emails sent from our email address will be encrypted to protect patient privacy, in line with the Australian Privacy Principles. Emails will contain a link to our secure server and can be accessed using these steps. Once you have accessed the message, you can reply directly and/or download attachments if required.   

Urgent clinical issues or emergencies should directed to standard urgent-care services, including Nurse-on-Call, your general practitioner, local emergency department or the ambulance service.
