MEDICAL RESEARCH AND STUDIES
Part of Castle Hill Medical Centre (CHMC) commitment to excellence in health care delivery is the ongoing involvement in medical research. CHMC and its patients have been involved in many studies, over the past 18 years, ranging from flu research to the management of smoking related chronic bronchitis (COPD).
At present we are looking for patients who have diabetes but who may not be treated adequately on a single medication as part of the Discover Study, a worldwide collaboration of which there are only 5 sites in Australia.
Dr Peter Hay has a particular interest in the management and research of diabetes and is the principal investigator for this study and many other studies run by CHMC.
PRE-EMPLOYMENT MEDICALS (PEM)
Pre-employment medicals (PEM) are a service that many companies are now utilising and are finding increasingly helpful in the modern workplace.
PEM involve a detailed examination of a prospective candidate before the employer hires that person. The role of these medicals is to ensure that the candidate will be fit for the proposed job and to flag any unseen health concerns. This allows for a healthy workforce as well as minimising the risk of injuries and subsequent ‘lost-time injuries’.
At Castle Hill Medical Centre, we have extensive experience of Pre-employment medicals. We carry out a variety of different PEMs on a daily basis to over 100 local businesses. These range from small family run operations to international corporates and construction sites. We are familiar with both office based enterprise and the more manual/physical side of operations involved in construction and mining. Recently Castle Hill Medical Centre has been the preferred provided for both the PEMs and injury management of the Northwest Rail Link Project.
