Allied Health Services Available at Vermont Health Care
Nunawading Clinic & Vermont Health Care have always strived to provide more comprehensive services to the community and are happy to have Podiatry, Physiotherapy, Psychology and Dietitian Services provided at our larger practice at Vermont Health Care. If you are wondering if these will benefit you, please talk to one of our doctors or receptionists to access these services.
Thanks to all our patients who have supported this practice over the years. We are now happy to announce that the online booking service is up and running. The service is run by HotDoc and you can also download the app to your mobile device if you prefer. Not all available appointments are listed online so if you feel your matter is urgent, please call us and we will endeavour to fit you in on the same day. The Urgent Care weekend appointments will need to be made by phone at this time but this might change in the future. Please feel free to provide our staff with feedback so we can help make this program as user-friendly as possible.

Nunawading Clinic & Vermont Health Care have had a long history of teaching registrars over the years and a number have stayed on after completion as part of our current team. We provide a full spectrum of General Practice work from Home visits, Workforce medicals, Nursing Home visits in addition to our comprehensive in-house General practice services. We have five Accredited Supervisors in our clinics and a few of them are also involved as Fellowship Examiners for the RACGP.
We would love to have a chat and help you explore your options in General Practice. If this has piqued your interest, please feel free to forward your CV or alternatively, contact the clinic to speak with a Supervisor (Dr Terence Heng and Dr Christine Lin).
GP’s who have achieved their vocational registration are also welcome to apply for a position as well.

Fracture Diversion Project in Conjunction with Eastern Melbourne PHN
Dr Terence Heng is part of a year-long project where fractures which are amenable for GP management are being seen and managed in our clinic. He has undergone further training and attachments at Box Hill Hospital to provide this service to patients. This service is open to the community as well and does not need a referral. If you have a suitable fracture and have been referred to the fracture clinic or Emergency Department at Box Hill Hospital or Maroondah Hospital, you may be offered a list of GPs in your area who are participating in this project.
Yellow Fever Vaccination
Nunawading Clinic is an Accredited Yellow Fever Vaccination Clinic for travellers to Central / South America & Africa. Some private health insurance companies will partially cover the cost of your overseas vaccinations so we do encourage you to get in touch with them. Our doctors will be able to advise you about the appropriate vaccinations required for your upcoming trip.
