Practice of the Year


Hepatitis and Meningococcal Vaccines

PRINGS Medical is the 2018 Victorian Practice of the Year, awarded by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, and is now shortlisted for the national award in October.

Springs Medical Board chair Dr Gerard Ingham said "this is deserved and important recognition for our effort and focus to provide the highest quality of health care". "It takes years of dedicated hard work and resources to achieve such a high standard." Springs Medical was nominated after it was recognised as an exceptional practice during an external accreditation assessment in May. Manager Lynda Poke said to have an independent assessor visit the practice and recognise the exceptional service given to the community made them all "extremely proud of what we have achieved as a team". Ms Poke said clinical team leader Jo Millard and practice coordinator Emma Johns had worked tirelessly to ensure the systems and processes would not only meet the standard required to maintain accreditation, but in most cases exceed it.


Vaccines to protect against Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Human Papilloma Virus and Meningococcal strains ACWY, are currently free for many Gay Men, Bisexual Men and MSM.
