Specialist Services Medical Group
Medical Services - Westmead, NSW
Specialist Services was the brain child by a small founding group of specialist dedicated in patient centered multidisciplinary care in 1997.
Specialist Services aim is to create the highest quality multi-disciplinary specialist medical group in Australia. We are achieving this by bringing the best established and emerging medical specialists into dedicated facilities that incorporate the latest technology, research and education, advanced systems and support personnel with exceptional ability.
Specialist services is owned and run by the medical specialists with the primary aim of delivering world's best care.
Specialist Services was a concept initiated in 1997 by a small founding group of specialists committed to patient centred multidisciplinary care.
Too many groups of medical specialists have been corporatised with the result that the main focus can become the balance sheet rather than the patient and quality care.
We have created a model of specialist healthcare that is unique - Professor Ung said, "We want to build a care model that is centred around the patient, rather than the doctor."
This model of care creates a caring environment where excellence in patient care will always be the focus. The aim is to have facilities and groups of specialists that can work together to offer co-ordinated managment of medical conditions.
An example of this integrated specialist care is our model for the treatment of breast cancer. A lady with a suspicious lump can be referred to a specialist at one of our centres and have the diagnostic testing necessary, consult with a surgeon, a radiation oncologist and a medical oncologist all at the one site and have her whole treatment planned and centrally co-ordinated. Gone are the days of having to see multiple specialists at multiple venues with no overall co-ordination of care delivery.
This is the model of care we are bringing to all diseases with the primary aim of easing the stress and inconvenience that accompanies "old style" specialist care.
