Mission Statement

 

gpmaroubra is a specialist primary care clinic committed to providing outstanding health
care to individuals and the community; and excellence in professional medical training for
students and junior doctors.

 

People who attend gpmaroubra feel that their health needs are being met at the highest standards of
care, and that enough time is spent with a doctor or nurse in the delivery of health care.

 

gpmaroubra is not a medical centre. It is a medical home for people where all your healthcare needs
are coordinated. Our doctors are chosen for their abilities to deliver outstanding healthcare by:
excellence in medical knowledge; excellence in communication; ability to work as a team member and
commitment to the ethos of outstanding, patient-centered, whole-person care. Our doctors all have or
are in the final year of gaining their specialist fellowship in general practice: the FRACGP.

 

Our team at gpmaroubra is passionate about the delivery of high quality whole person primary care
through a collaborative model of medical practice. This means we all work together: reception,
managers, nurses and doctors, to give people the best possible health outcomes.

 

Specialist general practice involves a deep knowledge of medicine and an integrated understanding of
all aspects of a person’s life that determine their health and wellbeing. This whole-person care
addresses the psychological, social, spiritual, nutritional, environmental and physical dimensions of a
person’s health and wellbeing.

 

At gpmaroubra we are also committed to the highest standards of professional development including
the enthusiastic teaching and training of medical students and junior doctors. We understand that as
teachers we also learn from our students and our patients.

 
gpmaroubra provides a supportive and stimulating work environment that promotes an interactive
and collaborative relationship amongst us all.
