Medical Practice, they were committed from the start to re-open, ready to serve the locals in Idalia. “We were overwhelmed by the community support and enthusiasm as a patient after patient would pop into the practice just to say hi and thanks for opening,� Dr Clements says. “My first few days of consults were filled with patients coming to check on me and how I was doing, which was quite the turnaround from how my consults normally go!� The Fairfield Central and Townsville Central Medical Practices are also committed to training the future generations of health staff, including medical students, physician assistants and junior doctors. “We want to be known for the quality of our practitioners and our care, particularly in chronic disease management and veteran’s health,� Dr Clements says. “We understand that the patient experience starts from the point of booking all the way through to how you receive your results and we’re committed to quality care throughout.�
