Are you a veteran residing in Darwin who has been discharged from the ADF due to illness or injury acquired while in active service? If so, you need the exceptional veterans health care in Darwin that only Veterans Health Centre (VHC) can provide. Established in 2019 by ex ADF Dr, Dr Thomas Perkins, VHC aims to deliver an unmatched level of care for veterans.
At VHC we recognise the challenges faced by veterans as they transition to civilian life, whilst also navigating their health concerns and the complexities of dealing with the DVA. Through the care provided by Dr Perkins and his team of ex-ADF servicemen and women, VHC works to eliminate unnecessary stress and provide support to veterans as they rebuild their lives.
We are proud of the reputation we have built as a premier provider of veterans health care in Darwin. Our holistic approach to assisting veterans goes beyond the provision of clinical treatment for physical and mental health concerns. We also provide comprehensive DVA claims completion and submission, taking the stress and anxiety out of the process and enabling our veterans to focus on more important things.
We know the negative impacts caused through interaction with the DVA can impair progress and recovery. This is why we handle any initial assessments, all associated paperwork and DVA submissions to eliminate unwanted stress for veterans.
In addition to extensive DVA support, we also provide the following bulk-billed services related to veterans health care in Darwin:
- Initial liability assessments and claims
- Permanent Impairment Assessments
- Diagnostic Assessments
- GP Management Plans
- Team Care Arrangements
- Mental Health Care Plans and more.
Our exceptional care is in part facilitated by our trusted network of psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and other specialists. By leveraging this expertise and collaborating to create personalised health care plans, we deliver a level of veterans health care in Darwin which is truly unique.
This well balanced and organised approach means securing support for injury management, pain management, chronic illness management, mental health services support and management and musculoskeletal injuries, is both simplified and effective.
Social support plays a key role for veterans and is something we value highly. We encourage our veterans to form connections with support services such as Mates4Mates where there are ongoing opportunities for veterans to engage in “compassionate bridging”, form new friendships and identify their renewed sense of self as they re-enter civilian life.
