Are you facing a medical discharge from the ADF due to illness or injury acquired in service? Finding outstanding veterans health care in Richmond will be one of the first steps you need to explore. At Veterans Health Centre (VHC) we understand the challenges veterans face navigating this life change and the added stress that dealing with the DVA brings.
During this transition to an entirely new lifestyle, your focus needs to be on your recovery and establishing your new normal. Dr Thomas Perkins, an ex ADF doctor, recognised that the difficulties dealing with the DVA were detrimental to this process and opened the VHC as a result. Our one-of-a-kind clinic is staffed with ex ADF personnel dedicated to supporting our veterans in every step of their recovery.
Veterans Health Centre takes a balanced approach to veterans’ health needs. We know that good health is not solely about the treatments we can provide, but also the support we offer. We have seen firsthand the detrimental effects that dealing with the DVA can have on a veteran’s progress.
This is why, as part of our approach to veterans’ health care in Richmond, we also offer comprehensive DVA claims completion and submission service. From initial assessments required by the DVA, to sourcing and completion of all paperwork and final submission, we handle it all. We provide veterans the time they need to focus on their recovery with reduced stress.
In addition to dealing with the DVA we also provide support to veterans for:
- Initial liability assessments and claims
- Permanent Impairment Assessments
- Diagnostic Assessments
- GP Management Plans
- Team Care Arrangements
- Mental Health Care Plans and more.
Through our years of practice, we have established a network of trusted psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and other specialists. The combination of these specialities has allowed us to provide unmatched care to our veterans.
As our patient you can expect tailored care to treat a variety of situations. This includes any issues related to injury management, pain management, chronic illness management, mental health services, support and management and musculoskeletal injuries and their pain management.
Our close connections with social support services such as Mates4Mates provides veterans with opportunities to engage in “compassionate bridging”, form valuable new connections and rebuild their confidence and self-esteem post service.
