We are pleased to welcome Dr Deena Parbhoo, an experienced Royal Children’s Hospital paediatrician, who will be with us on a weekly basis for patient consultations.
Doctors of Northcote is one of five general practices chosen as part of a new pilot study aiming to boost child health care in the primary care system by placing specialist paediatricians in local general practices.
The study examines the impact on child health outcomes of providing greater specialist support to general practice in treating and managing paediatric patients.
Our GP’s will participate in monthly, in-practice case conferences with the Dr Parbhoo. They will also be able to access the paediatrician via phone and email for same-day advice.
Patients can obtain a referral from one of our participating GP’s following an initial evaluation.
To book an appointment please speak to reception.
