If you are, or have recently been discharged from ADF service due to illness or injury acquired while enlisted, finding veterans health care in Amberley that understands the DVA is critical. Selecting a health care provider during this transition to civilian life and navigating the ins and outs of the Department of Veterans Affairs can be incredibly overwhelming.
At a time when your focus needs to be on your health and rebuilding your life outside of service, added complications can be detrimental to your recovery. Dr Thomas Perkins, as an ex ADF doctor, recognised the challenges faced by our veterans and this gap in their care. This lack of support inspired Dr Perkins to establish Veterans Health Centre, a one-of-a-kind clinic staffed by ex ADF servicemen and women whose goal is to give back to our veterans.
If you are preparing to submit DVA Claims whilst posted to/or based in Amberley, make sure you speak to with our team first.
At Veterans Health Centre we take a holistic approach to supporting veterans and their health. We recognise that one of the things that so often impairs or stalls their recovery is the toll on their mental health when trying to interact with the DVA.
This is why we pair our approach to veterans health care in Amberley to meet their physical and mental health needs, along with a complete DVA claims completion and submission service. We handle the initial assessments, all associated paperwork and DVA submission for our patients. This gives them the space they need to focus on their recovery.
Outside of dealing with the DVA we also support veterans with:
- Initial liability assessments and claims
- Permanent Impairment Assessments
- Diagnostic Assessments
- GP Management Plans
- Team Care Arrangements
- Mental Health Care Plans and more.
Our network of trusted psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and other specialists combine to create an unmatched approach to your care. We deliver entirely personalised and tailored ongoing care related to injury management, pain management, chronic illness management, mental health services, support and management and musculoskeletal injuries and their pain management.
We also have relationships with providers of outstanding social support services, including Mates4Mates. The idea behind these services is to provide veterans with avenues for “compassionate bridging”, making new connections and rebuilding of self as they re-enter civilian life.
