The big news for Phillip Island health is that Dr Carol will be leaving in August. She has bought a raspberry farm with her family in the Otways. She is very excited about this as it has been her dream to own a berry farm. She will be leaving in mid August.
Of course, the practice will continue with Mel working more days and Mandy continuing her Reiki on Wednesdays. Dr Carol’s patients will be able to continue in the practice and be seen by Mel or they may choose to move to one of the local GPs. Mel, as a nurse practitioner, can deal with all issues within her scope of practice and can refer when she needs. She can write scripts, order investigations, diagnose problems, refer to specialists and do most things that GPs can do.
Carol is sad to be leaving the practice and hopes patients will continue to support it.
Please speak to Carol as soon as possible if you need to transfer your file to another practice.
