Seeking exceptional veterans health care in Springfield tailored to meet your unique needs? Ex ADF Dr Thomas Perkins and his team of ex-service men and women are here to help. Established in 2019, Veterans Health Centre provides world-class health care alongside comprehensive DVA claims support for veterans discharged due to illness or injury obtained during service.
The team at VHC understands how challenging it can be to transition into civilian life after years within the ADF; a process that is made harder still for veterans who have to deal with the DVA. Our goal is to create a winning health care plan for veterans while eliminating the stress and anxiety caused through interactions with the DVA. We aim to provide the space needed to focus on their recovery and new lifestyle.
At VHC we take a balanced approach to veteran care by looking beyond the clinical aspects to provide comprehensive DVA claims completion and submission, along with social support. It’s this holistic approach that sets us apart from other centres for veteran care.
We have seen the negative impacts on health and recovery that DVA induced stress can cause. This is why we offer intensive DVA claims support as part of our treatment services. We believe that this contributes to the best possible environment for recovery, as well as optimal claims outcomes.
We handle all DVA required health assessments, any associated paperwork and the final DVA submission. Our processes have been hugely successful in eliminating any unnecessary stress for our veterans.
DVA support is just one of a range of services we offer. We also provide the following bulk-billed services related to veterans health care in Springfield:
- Initial liability assessments and claims
- Permanent Impairment Assessments
- Diagnostic Assessments
- GP Management Plans
- Team Care Arrangements
- Mental Health Care Plans and more.
Our years spent in practice have helped us develop a trusted network of health care professionals. This includes psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and other specialists. Through a combination of our varied skills and expertise we have developed a level of veterans health care in Springfield which is truly unique.
Our highly personalised approach allows us to expertly manage ongoing care for a range of issues. This includes, but not limited to, injury management, pain management, chronic illness management, mental health services, support and management and musculoskeletal injuries and their pain management.
Social support services such as Mates4Mates form another integral part of the care we offer. Through these support services veterans have the opportunity to form new relationships, reconnect with their identity and engage in “compassionate bridging”. This facilitates a gentler, more supported transition to life outside the ADF.
