Securing outstanding veterans health care in Brisbane is made easier thanks to Dr Thomas Perkins and his team at Veterans Health Centre (VHC). Dr Perkins discharged from the ADF in 2019 and opened VHC with the goal of delivering world-class health care and DVA claims support to veterans discharged due to illness or injury acquired during their service.
At VHC we know that the stresses and anxieties involved with dealing with the DVA and finding the best health care, while trying to transition to civilian life, are often overwhelming. Our team of ex-ADF servicemen and women aim to minimise or eliminate these challenges so you can focus on your recovery and new life outside of the ADF.
Something that sets VHC apart from other health care providers is our balanced, holistic approach to veteran care. We go beyond the clinical aspects of your physical and mental health needs by also providing comprehensive DVA claims completion and submission.
We know the toll taken on individuals and families when dealing with the DVA impacts negatively on recovery. Our comprehensive services have been created to provide a better platform for our veterans to pursue an optimal recovery while still achieving the necessary outcomes with the DVA.
We handle the initial assessments, all associated paperwork and DVA submissions to eliminate unwanted stress for our patients.
Alongside DVA support, we also provide the following bulk-billed services related to veterans health care in Brisbane:
- 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 health care professionals includes psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and other specialists. This combination of expertise enables us to create an unmatched level of veterans health care in Brisbane.
Our tailored approach to ongoing care includes support for injury management, pain management, chronic illness management, mental health services, support and management and musculoskeletal injuries and their pain management.
We also facilitate the formation of connections with providers of exceptional social support services, including Mates4Mates. These services have been developed to create opportunities for veterans to engage in “compassionate bridging”, develop new friendships and rebuild their sense of self as they re-enter civilian life.
