If you a Tindal veteran living in the Northern Territory who has recently left the ADF due to injury or illness acquired during your time in service, one of your first steps will be the need to secure outstanding veterans health care in Tindal. Established in 2019 by Dr Thomas Perkins, an ex ADF doctor, Veterans Health Centre (VHC) was created to deliver veterans an unmatched level of care.
The team at VHC, all ex-ADF servicemen and women, understand the difficulties faced when transitioning back to civilian life. They also recognised the negative impact that dealing with the DVA can have on this process and their recovery from illness and/or injury. VHC is committed to helping ease or eliminate this stress, providing quality support for veterans when they need it most.
When it comes to securing premier veterans healthcare in Tindal, you won’t find anything like VHC. Our well planned and balanced approach involves so much more than clinical treatments for physical and mental health. As part of our services, we also handle all aspects of DVA claims completion and submission. This helps ease the stress and anxiety linked to claims, giving veterans room to focus on what matters most.
We have seen first-hand the negative impacts that dealing with the DVA can have on the recovery process. That is why we handle DVA required assessments, associated paperwork, sourcing of supporting documents and final submission on behalf of our patients.
Alongside this comprehensive DVA support, we also provide the following bulk-billed services related to veterans health care in Tindal:
- Initial liability assessments and claims
- Permanent Impairment Assessments
- Diagnostic Assessments
- GP Management Plans
- Team Care Arrangements
- Mental Health Care Plans and more.
Part of what allows us to deliver such world-class healthcare is our network of trusted professionals. This network includes psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and other specialists. Through consultation and collaboration, we create tailored plans for veterans health care in Tindal.
This holistic approach makes securing support for injury management, pain management, chronic illness management, mental health services support and management and musculoskeletal injuries easier than ever.
Something we also value and focus on at VHC is social support. Part of our role involves facilitating opportunities for veterans to make new friendships, reconnect with their identity outside of service and engage in “compassionate bridging”. This is why we also work closely with social support services such as Mates4Mates.
