Health Care Assistance for Veterans in Newcastle

Are you a Newcastle veteran recently discharged from the ADF due to illness or injury acquired during service? If so, you deserve the very best veterans health care in Newcastle, something Veterans Health Centre (VHC) excels at providing.

Following his departure from the ADF, Dr Thomas Perkins recognised the need for a renewed approach to veterans health care. Subsequently, in 2019 VHC was opened to deliver unmatched care to our deserving veterans.

Dr Perkins is not the only ex-ADF team member, VHC is staffed by several ex-servicemen and women who deeply understand the challenges faced when adjusting to life outside of service. They also understand that these challenges, compounded with the stress caused by dealing with the DVA are counterintuitive to a veteran’s recovery.

This is why we offer a combination of care aimed at both supporting your recovery and eliminating DVA issues. It’s tailored, genuine care for veterans when they need it most.
