CORPORATE SERVICES

“Quality healthcare when you need it most”

Ascot Family Practice has developed corporate relationships with several “blue chip” corporate customers. With over 20 years experience, we pride ourselves on the delivery of friendly, professional customer service. We partner with your company to understand your business and provide extensive experience in industrial health to the transport, building, mining, construction, industrial and manufacturing.

The following medical services are available at our practice:

Accident and Emergency Treatment
Our fully equipped modern treatment room is well equipped to deal with most acute injuries on site. We have a registered nurse in attendance at all times. The medical team can suture cuts and wounds, stabilise fractures and deal with eye injuries.

Commercial Drivers’ Licence
The National Medical Standards (private or commercial) and the guidelines Assessing Fitness to Drive are used to assess whether an employee has a mental or physical incapacity (a medical condition) that is likely to affect an employee’s ability to drive a motor vehicle safely.  The doctors at Ascot Family Practice are familiar with the medical standards used to assess drivers for fitness to drive commercial vehicles. Our doctors provide advice, based on the standards, about how an employee’s particular health condition might affect their ability to drive safely and how it might be managed.

Injury Management  - Call Ascot Family Practice because “accidents at work do happen”
Ascot Family Practice offers a totally integrated injury management service.  From diagnosis, to treatment and assessment of the employee’s ability to return to work, we coordinate and facilitate an early return to the workplace.   Injuries that occur in the workplace are dealt with promptly and efficiently.  Suitable duties programs are encouraged, for those requiring this approach.  We provide assistance to stream-line worker’s compensation paperwork. With open communication, we keep you fully informed of your injured employee.

Should an incident occur, our doctors will provide an early and accurate diagnosis, arrange physical treatment and rehabilitation programs and attend to any psychological issues. If we are unable to treat the employee at our practice, your nominated representative will be contacted. Ascot Family Practice has developed relationships  with local private hospitals and allied health providers to ensure continued quality healthcare.
