Our Vision

Our Vision

Balance! Healthcare has a vision to provide the infrastructure and environment for the service providers in our network to be the leading, evidence based high quality and well respected comprehensive Primary Health teams. The model driving the Balance! Healthcare GP Super Clinics represents the future of primary healthcare in Australia.

By providing the services to assist in integrating medical, specialist and allied healthcare services within one practice, centred around the client to deliver holistic healthcare, our goal is to facilitate the delivery of quality primary healthcare for the communities in which we operate. We encourage our service providers to focus on preventative healthcare and early detection by looking at environment, nutrition and lifestyle management. The Balance! Healthcare approach is about empowering people to take control and improve their own health.

GP Super Clinics

Balance! Healthcare was awarded a grant by the Federal Government (Department of Health) in 2009 to establish and operate GP Super Clinics in the Blue Mountains and Cairns.

The Clinic is based on a ‘hub and spoke’ model – with purpose-built multi-disciplinary healthcare hubs at Springwood, NSW and Edmonton, QLD with primary care spokes in key service centres throughout the Blue Mountains and Cairns. This model enables us to provide a service infrastructure locally throughout the region and provide a consistent level of care across all our operations.

The practices within the GP Super Clinic are electronically linked, providing a coordinated system of healthcare and secure access to client records. With patient consent, individual medical records will be available to all practitioners, allowing them to gain a complete picture of a client’s treatment program.

We are fully committed to My Health Record.

The main Blue Mountains BP Super Clinic is located at 16 Ferguson Road, Springwood and opened on 30 January 2012. The practice is open 7 days a week.

The main Cairns GP Super Clinic is located at 5 Walker Road, Edmonton and opened on 14 May 2012. The practice is open 7 days a week.

Commitment to Education & Training

GP Super Clinics present an opportunity to enhance multi-disciplinary education in order to enhance working relationships and workforce participation. Education and training is therefore a very important part of the GP Super Clinics for both practitioners and administrative staff.

The GP Super Clinics are designed to be a ‘centre of excellence’ for education and training.

We work with our partners from the University of Western Sydney, University of Sydney, Notre Dame University and James Cook University in Queensland.

Significantly, we have established research and student placement arrangements with a number of Universities to undertake and share academic research, and to provide training opportunities for medical, nursing and allied health students.
