Collaborative teamwork is the core of what makes the HAWL Healthcare brand so unique.
It is indisputable that collaborative teamwork plays a critical role in the delivery of high quality health care and patient safety.
As a HAWL GP you are truly supported by your own dedicated nurse to manage and administer HAWL’s Annual Residential Health Care Plan. This specialised concept will allow you more time to address the current health needs as well as the preventive care requirements of the residents.
How it works?
To enable and assist all GPs to oversee the detailed, comprehensive and continuing process of medical care to the residents, the HAWL structure separates from tradition by emphasising that the delivery of premium quality care is not dependent on the GP alone, instead it relies heavily on a partnership between the GP and nurse.
The assigned nurse eliminates any administrative requirement of the resident visit process by recording and compiling a comprehensive health profile which will enable the GP to quickly complete a health assessment when he or she visits the resident. More importantly, the partnering nurse will fill out the necessary documentation including patient notes and Medicare compliant paperwork, paving the way for a straightforward and smooth consultation upon the GPs arrival at the RACF.
The ‘balance of care’ struck by this innovative approach to providing comprehensive healthcare to residents at RACFs, enables the GP to increase their financial reward and work-life balance, while optimising healthcare for their patients.
Duties and responsibilities
Our doctors can expect to take on a leadership and training role, in particular providing clinical oversight to enable our nurses to deliver more complex medical care and procedures.
Consulting with residents and their families, staff, RACF management and other health professionals during twice weekly visits to RACFs as resident numbers increase, our GPs will have the satisfaction of knowing they are delivering direct benefits to RACF residents. A rewarding career that promises to increase the demand for aged care health practitioners over time.
