Health care a heartbeat away A high-tech cardiology unit is proving residents in the outer suburbs can access good-quality health care. The experienced team at Werribee Heart - headed by Professor Robert Whitbourn (pictured) - has been part of Wyndham Private Medical Centre since the beginning. As Professor of Cardiology at St Vincent’s Hospital, the wellrespected cardiologist brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience having also worked at Stanford School of Medicine in California. A teacher and trainer, Professor Whitbourn heads up the Cardiovascular Research Centre, which looks at new technologies and devices to treat heart disease. While consulting in the Werribee region over the past few years alongside Associate Professor Andrew Wilson, they recognised a growing need for services in the outer west.

Werribee Heart now has three rooms at the Wyndham Private Medical Centre — the largest used for stress testing and echo cardiograms to assess heart function. They also have the ability to do 24-hour testing to record ECG (heart rhythm) and blood pressure.

Professor Whitbourn says this level of service is an example of how the unit is benefiting residents in the west. “We’re able to provide a level of cardiac service which wasn’t available before.” Werribee Heart is now taking referrals from the Werribee area, Point Cook, Melton, Geelong, Williamstown and Altona. All patients are bulk-billed in keeping with the philosophy of providing accessible health care.

Alarm over rise in ‘ice’ call-outs Belinda Lloyd said the rise in crystal meth cases was alarming, and warned it could cause severe mental and physical effects. The drug has been linked to stroke, heart failure and violent episodes of psychosis and paranoia. Inspector Damian Christensen of Wyndham police said officers were often put into dangerous situations when confronting ice addicts. ‘‘It’s the very erratic nature of people we have to deal with, whether it’s domestic violence, or someone who is ‘coming down’,’’ he said. ‘‘We have to do a proper risk assessment, which can often be difficult with the limited information from calls that come in, and we have to make some pretty quick decisions.’’ Mercy Public Hospitals executive director Linda

Ex-councillor hits out WYNDHAM Council has threatened to fine an ex-councillor who is protesting the expansion of a massive mound of waste at the Werribee landfill site. Julian Menegazzo, who served on the council from 1981-85, received a contravention notice this month after putting up two signs on silos at his Browns Road property. The signs are part of an escalating community campaign urging the council to scrap plans to expand the above-ground landfill, already towering 26 metres, at its Wests Road tip site. The council is applying to the Environment Protection Authority to enlarge the mound to 45 metres, the height of a 12-storey building. According to council plans, it could eventually tower up to 100 metres. The letter states that if Mr Menegazzo does not remove the signs he could be fined more than $700, and up to $169,000 if the matter is taken to court. Mr Menegazzo (pictured with wife Connie) said the threat was insulting.

‘‘This is a community campaign, and for them to individualise it like this, it feels nasty, and it’s offensive. I’ve now put up a third sign, I’ve sent the letter to my solicitors and we’re waiting for any further action – we’re not going to be pushed around.’’ He said the signs were designed to raise awareness of the negative stigma the waste mound would reinforce about Werribee. ‘‘What’s there at the moment is a pimple compared to what they’re planning, and it’s going to let everyone on the freeway know that we take the waste, that’s Werribee’s function. It’s a bad image for our community.’’ Wyndham CEO Kerry Thompson said the council respected the public’s right to object to the plans but stressed the tip site adhered to strict EPA landfill requirements. She said the notice was issued because Mr Menegazzo erected the sign without a permit. The council’s 2013-14 draft budget has earmarked $1 million to build a new landfill cell at the tip. — Nick Toscano

DRUG abuse in Wyndham is driving up crime and adding strain on the hospital system, as new figures show a sharp rise in ambulance call-outs. Latest data from Ambulance Victoria reveals the number of call-outs across Wyndham for the highly addictive crystal methamphetamine, commonly known as ‘ice’, more than doubled within a 12-month period. Paramedics were called to 19 crystal meth cases in the municipality in 2011-12, compared to nine a year earlier. Statewide, there were 592 crystal meth call-outs last year, up from 282. Turning Point alcohol and drug centre researcher

Mellors said methamphetamine use was a growing problem and users of the drug could often be aggressive towards emergency department staff. Werribee Mercy this year received a $500,000 grant from the state government to help it better respond to drug-affected patients, which Dr Mellors said would be used to recruit specialist staff. Magistrate John Bentley, who regularly sits at Werribee Magistrates Court, said ice had become a ‘‘very serious problem’’ in Wyndham and was inflicting a great deal of harm on the community. Across Wyndham there was a 46 per cent increase in alcohol-related ambulance call-outs, from 142 to 208 last year, while heroin calls were up 52 per cent and cannabis calls 22 per cent.

���

Fairer budget for Wyndham: PM WITH less than four months to go until the federal election, Prime Minister Julia Gillard has defended the budget as being one that will underpin a ‘‘fairer future’’ for Wyndham residents. But the state government says Wyndham families are in the firing line of a budget decision to slash the baby bonus, and criticised the budget’s failure to bankroll major road infrastructure. Handed down on May 14, Treasurer Wayne Swan’s sixth federal budget has earmarked $176,000 to tackle dangerous black spots on Wyndham roads. They include the intersections of Tarneit and Shaws roads at Werribee, Haines Drive and Storkbill Road at Wyndham Vale, and Morris and Hogans roads at Hoppers Crossing. Canberra coffers funnelled a further $527,700 directly to Wyndham Council for road upgrades under the Roads to Recovery Program, and $448,500 to design a sustainable community next to the upcoming Tarneit West station on the Regional Rail Link, under the Liveable Cities Program. Ms Gillard said the DisabilityCare scheme would give 4182 residents in her Lalor electorate lifetime support. “This is a big picture budget, focused on making the right decisions to ensure Australia’s future,” Ms Gillard said. Western metropolitan Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury said a big blow to Wyndham residents was replacing the Howard-era baby bonus with a much lower payment. A new payment linked to Family Tax Benefit A will slash the payment for a first child from $5000 to $2000 and for subsequent kids from $3000 to $1000. ‘‘There’s a birthrate of 70 babies a week in Wyndham, and this is going to have a huge impact on families,’’ he said. Mr Elsbury welcomed the ‘‘minor’’ budget allocations for Wyndham roads, but said Ms Gillard had failed to help fund the $40 million Sneydes Road interchange — ‘‘the biggest infrastructure project in her own backyard’’ — and left the state government to go it alone. ‘‘It just shows which government is serious about funding infrastructure works in the western suburbs.’’ — Nick Toscano

Earth moves for new residents BY LAURA LITTLE FIVE adults with severe or profound disabilities will be able to live independently after work began on supported accommodation units at Werribee. The units, in Prouse Place, are being built by Yarra Community Housing and Mind Australia. The federal government has contributed $1.93 million to the project through its Supported Accommodation Innovation Fund, while the state government provided $2.45 million to Mind Australia over four years to help with the development. Disability Reform Minister Jenny Macklin said the units would allow people with disabilities to live independently in their own home, with

the added peace of mind that help is close at hand if needed. “People with disability need access to a range of supported accommodation models which allow them and their carers to participate as valued members of their communities,’’ she said. “We believe people with disability should have the same opportunities as everyone else, including the ability to live independently.’’ The project will involve the construction of five separate, fully self-contained one-bedroom units, plus communal space. There will also be a studio apartment for support workers. Mind Australia chief executive Dr Gerry Naughtin said the development would look like any other small unit complex in the area. The

project is expected to be completed mid-2014. As reported by the Weekly, Wyndham has an acute shortage of permanent supported accommodation, forcing some parents to look after their adult children well into their 70s and 80s. The municipality has one overnight respite facility, BaseCamp 3030. Dr Naughtin said he hoped the units would offer people with disabilities more supported living options and the ability to make a choice about where they live. ‘‘Mind Australia will provide support services to people with disabilities who have not been able to be supported in existing services.’’ Yarra Community Housing chief executive Rob Leslie said the development would help people with disabilities live in affordable housing.

Rail’s slice of cash pie

Struggling: Sari Smith and Simone Riley protest outside Julia Gillard’s office in Werribee against cuts to the single parent payment scheme . Picture: Scott McNaughton

Sole parents decry welfare cuts BY NICK TOSCANO SINGLE parents have renewed their demands for the federal government to reverse its controversial cuts to parenting payments. At a rally outside Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s office in Werribee on Friday, a group of mothers, children and representatives of the Single Parents Action Group claimed women had been robbed of flexibility, and were more likely to stay in abusive relationships because they couldn’t afford to leave. From January 1, about 84,000 single parents whose youngest child had turned eight were moved on to the lower-paying Newstart — losing between $60 to $110 a week. Werribee mother-of-three Sari Smith, who became a single parent after leaving her violent marriage in 1991, said the changes were forcing thousands of parents into a ‘‘one-size-fits-all’’

policy. She said parenting payments had been her lifeline, and pushing mums onto Newstart would strip them of the flexibility to move in and out of work while engaging in higher education and caring for their kids. ‘‘My children needed my care after a difficult divorce,’’ she said. ‘‘I relied heavily on parenting payments and other supports from Centrelink to get by. Because I was not forced into full-time work, I was able to take appropriate care of my children while studying for a higher degree and continuing to gain experience in the tertiary sector.’’ Ms Smith, 54, said the budget measure to restore single parents’ access to the education supplement, worth $31 to $62 a fortnight from next January, was a step back in the right direction. ‘‘You can’t do both. You can’t earn enough money in a menial job and have any time left to study.’’ Single parents on Newstart will also be able to

earn an extra $38 a fortnight, under another budget measure, but Ms Smith said it went nowhere near restoring what had been lost. Greens federal candidate for Lalor, Beck Sheffield-Brotherton, stood with single parents at Friday’s rally, claiming the ‘‘needless’’ cuts would plunge many families deeper into poverty. ‘‘Australia is a rich country that has ridden out the global financial crisis far better than other places, but we’re acting as though we’re so poor that we can’t afford to care for the vulnerable.’’ Ms Gillard said the old rules, providing parenting payments until the youngest was 16, meant many ended up trapped on welfare. ‘‘If they commence a bit of part-time work when their child is school-aged . . . it will be better for them because they’ll have a job for the rest of their lives, and better for the child to have someone in the household modelling what it’s like to go to work every day.’’

WERRIBEE line commuters will benefit from the $100 million set aside in the state budget to improve services on the other side of town. While most of the money announced on May 7 will be spent on the Frankston line, Public Transport Victoria has confirmed that part of the funding will be used to improve Werribee and Williamstown services. A PTV spokeswoman said the Werribee, Williamstown and Frankston lines were connected, meaning they had to be upgraded at the same time. She said works on the Werribee and Williamstown lines would include signalling upgrades, installation of mirrors on platforms and CCTV systems, and upgrades to track and power substations. It’s hoped the works will reduce delays on the lines, which were hit with four track and signal faults in eight days earlier this month. On May 2, commuters faced delays of up to 40 minutes because of a signal fault at Laverton, while another signalling fault at South Kensington on May 6 resulted in delays of up to 15 minutes. Passengers were again kept waiting on May 7 and 9 after track faults were detected at Seaholme and Newport. The improvements will allow the new X’Trapolis trains to run on the Werribee and Williamstown lines. Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder said the new trains were faster and more reliable than older trains operating on the network. A PTV spokeswoman said it was not known when the improvements would begin because the department was still developing a schedule of works for the project. — Laura Little

Dozens made to wait over 24 hours BY LAURA LITTLE WERRIBEE Mercy Hospital accounted for more than a quarter of instances where Victorian patients waited more than 24 hours for emergency treatment between January and March. The latest Victorian Health Services Performance Report reveals that 380 patients waited longer than 24 hours for treatment in emergency departments, with 96 of them waiting at Werribee. Frankston Hospital had the highest number of patients (126) spending more than 24 hours in the emergency department, while Western Hospital had just two patients wait longer than a day. Mercy Public Hospitals executive director Linda Mellors said that in most cases patients waiting more than 24 hours for treatment were waiting for a bed in Werribee Mercy’s strained mental health unit. Dr Mellors said it was hoped the 54-bed mental health facility announced in the state budget would help reduce emergency department waiting times. The $34.7 million development will add 25 mental health beds to the hospital.

She said the hospital was also working to better manage complex emergency department presentations by investing in new equipment, liaising more with local GPs, providing extra beds in the hospital’s transition care program and making changes to its short stay unit. Altona MP Jill Hennessy said the performance report revealed a blow-out in waiting times at the hospital on top of increases in ambulance ramping and response times across Wyndham. “In almost every measure, our health system is going backwards – this is what happens when you cut $826 million from the health system over 21⁄2 years,’’ she said. However, Health Minister David Davis said Werribee Mercy Hospital was performing well and had managed to treat 100 per cent of category one patients as soon as they arrived at the emergency department and 85 per cent of category two patients within 10 minutes of arriving at the hospital. The government requires 80 per cent of category two patients to be treated within 10 minutes.

Upgrade offers sporting chance BY LAURA LITTLE REDEVELOPING the Werribee Sports and Fitness Centre will allow more children to take part in sport, centre users say. Wyndham council’s draft 2013-14 budget includes $10.9 million to begin redeveloping the ageing centre, which is used by netball, table tennis, volleyball, badminton and basketball clubs. The funding will allow work to begin in early 2014 and will continue into the 2014-15 financial year. In February, the state government contributed $650,000 to the $45 million project which will convert an existing six-court indoor facility into a 12-court complex, including a large gymnasium, exercise studio, show court, childcare centre and outdoor netball courts. Werribee Basketball Association president Mark Hall said users had

been waiting more than 10 years for the upgrade, which would make the centre the largest indoor court facility in the west. ‘‘Population growth has been enormous within the past few years and we have not been able to accommodate the extra demand,’’ he said. ‘‘During that time, there has been a number of new football and cricket grounds but no more indoor courts. This has meant we had to turn away young children who have wanted to play basketball. This redevelopment will mean that we will be able to create more opportunities for all participants, eliminate byes and play games even when it rains.’’ The centre’s committee launched a campaign in February, calling for all levels of government to fund the redevelopment. It also urged businesses and centre users to get behind the works.

Back in the saddle for mane event THE southern hemisphere’s oldest equestrian event will continue to be held at Werribee Park after the state government announced funding for this year’s event. The government will contribute $35,000 to help Equestrian Victoria stage the Melbourne International Three-Day Event in June and the national showjumping championships in September. Sports and Recreation Minister Hugh Delahunty said the events produced future equestrian stars. ‘‘These prestigious equestrian events provide the perfect platform for aspiring world champions to impress for national team selection and earn the ultimate honour to compete in future world championships and Olympics.’’ He said Werribee Park was the ideal venue for the events, which include elite dressage, cross country and showjumping competitions. The 56th Melbourne International Equestrian boost: Megan Jones competes in last year’s three-day event.

Three-Day Event will host horses and riders from across Australia, including former Olympians. The national championships, which were first staged by Equestrian Victoria last year, are expected to attract competitors from across Australia and New Zealand. The championships determine three Australian champions — one for each of the senior, junior and young rider categories. There is also a transTasman teams and a state teams competition. The event is a qualifier for riders to gain selection to the Australian team for the 2014 World Equestrian Games, which will be held in France. Equestrian Victoria chief executive Greg Pratt said the funding would allow the organisation to maintain a high standard of competition. The Melbourne International Three-Day Event is on June 8-10, with a community day on June 7. Tickets are available from Ticketek. The Australian Showjumping Championships are on September 19-22. — Laura Little

Gillard lays down gauntlet to rival BY LAURA LITTLE AND NICK TOSCANO THE battleground is set for September’s federal election as Prime Minister Julia Gillard throws down the gauntlet to the Liberals’ newly announced Lalor candidate. Ms Gillard, the MP for Lalor, has hit back at claims from her opponent, western suburbs lawyer Nihal Samara, that she had neglected the needs of her electorate. Mr Samara said Ms Gillard had become too tied up with internal Labor Party politics and national electioneering, adding that she had lost touch locally. But Ms Gillard pointed to her government’s multi-billion-dollar investment in the Regional Rail Link, $133 million for building projects at 57 Lalor schools, and $28 million for upgrades to Werribee Mercy Hospital as proof that her ‘‘priority has always been to listen to and fight for our local community’’. Following the $18 billion deficit in the 2013-14 budget, Mr Samara claimed Labor’s economic ‘‘mismanagement’’ was increasing

cost of living pressures on Lalor families. He said the Tony Abbott-led coalition had ‘‘real solutions to get the budget back in black in a responsible manner’’. ‘‘In this circumstance, we have got a clear direction . . . we have got real solutions for ensuring that the cost of living doesn’t increase. We have seen that reflected with the Labor Government where they have simply failed, both at national level and locally here too.’’ Ms Gillard said Labor had a track record of keeping the economy strong. ‘‘Over the past five years, we created 95,000 jobs. We have low unemployment. We have a AAA credit rating. And we have solid growth,’’ she said. ‘‘The Liberal Party, on the other hand have nothing — no plan, no policies and no idea.’’ Greens candidate for Lalor, Beck SheffieldBrotherton, said only the Greens would offer a fresh voice and break away from the ‘‘trivial’’ politics of the Labor and Liberal parties.

Re: Lawyer bares plan to unseat PM (Weekly, May 15):

will take place. This is the best opportunity to vote for Liberal, as Labor will not do anything as they know they will win this seat comfortably. The best solution is to make this seat marginal so that both parties will work for this seat. Arvinbhamoz What a lacklustre effort. Even when the Labor party is going to lose at the next federal election, the Liberal party puts in a weak effort to wrest the allegiance from the traditional Labor voters. I hope the new arrivals wake up to the reality of a rubbish dump, a container terminal and more congestion that is slated for the west’s residents. You are still being treated badly by the main parties. Jen

Unless we made this seat marginal, no development

elcome to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in East Melbourne, Australia’s only public hospital dedicated to beating cancer. Professor Rob Ramsay, head of cancer biology, is stationed on the third floor of the building in an unassuming lab where he leads a research group fixed on investigating cancer. ‘‘We’ve got no confusion about what we’re doing. We’re an organisation dedicated to looking after people with cancer and their families,’’ Ramsay says of his employer. ‘‘We’ve got one mission: cancer research.’’ One of his team’s latest projects surrounds the treatment of radiation therapy in people with brain tumours and looking at the significant loss of neurogenesis – the body’s ability to regenerate nervous tissue – which can cause loss of cognitive function, including learning and short-term memory. Ramsay says the natural process of tissues expanding rapidly and replacing themselves can be ‘‘hijacked’’ by cancer. ‘‘So when you treat a patient with cranial radiation you knock that process down amazingly fast. It’s very sensitive. The problem is that we need those cells to recover. Because if [they] don’t you lose your cognitive function, you don’t remember things.’’ Ramsay and his research team have been focusing on finding ways to cure primary cancer with the least amount of collateral damage. ‘‘The idea is that we try and do more damage to the tumour cells than to the local cells and normal cells. This is one of the greatest challenges of radiation treatment. You want to get the biggest bang for your buck without doing too much damage.’’ This particular area of cancer research intrigued him because a lot of treatment in the past had focused on curing the disease and not worrying about the aftermath. ‘‘You move from the traditional approaches: we’ll cure the cancer at any cost. That’s a great outcome, but now we look at the whole journey – survivorship. ‘‘What you don’t want to do with a patient is cure the disease but take away quality of life. And

it’s not just the quality of life of the patient, but the family too. If your mum’s had cancer and she’s had the treatment but lost some of that spark she used to have ... it’s a loss.’’ Ramsay grew up in the working-class suburb of Altona and recalls always liking biology. ‘‘I spent a lot of time in the paddocks of Altona and the swamps and I loved plants and little animals.’’ He went on to study science at La Trobe University and became hooked when undertaking practical work. ‘‘I thought this is fantastic, I want to do more of this. I thought at that point I’d love to have my own lab. I had no idea what that meant. But I wanted to do my own experiments and be a scientist.’’ Ramsay’s education evolved to include postdoctoral work in New York at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and then the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. He joined the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in 1995 to lead the Differentiation and Transcription Laboratory’’, part of Australia’s largest cancer research group. One of the most recent experiments has involved using lithium in post-radiation therapy to protect the brain from the worst side effects. The lab put six mice onto a wheel and X-rayed them with a radiotherapy machine, protecting their body but exposing their brain, and then looked at recovery with and without lithium. Early signs have been positive. ‘‘The discovery process is so exciting,’’ Ramsay says. ‘‘When you find something no one else has seen before and it connects two things together ... that’s fantastic.’’ Ramsay is quick to point out that his work connects with a network of dozens of laboratories around the world pulling together to tackle cancer. In many ways, as a researcher, he relies on the feedback of his clinical colleagues to gauge successful outcomes and work on new treatment possibilities. Out in the field, so to speak, at places such as Peter Mac’s new site in the west, the Sunshine Hosptial Radiation Centre in partnership with Western Health, is where Ramsay says many decades of research bear fruit. ‘‘The west has a huge cancer burden,’’ he says. ‘‘What Sunshine does is help deliver treatment and radiation therapy that’s part of the central pillars of the treatment we use.’’

On a Monday afternoon, we meet Andrew Conolly, a patient undergoing radiation treatment for a brain tumour. The Bacchus Marsh resident was diagnosed in January, initially believing his symptoms to be a result of depression. Ramsay meets Conolly and listens to his story. ‘‘It sobers your thinking,’’ he sums up. ‘‘It’s one thing to focus on your animal models and theory, but when you deal with a human being who’s actually articulate and interested in what I’m trying to do ... it’s sort of invigorating.’’ Conolly, 56, was in Sydney when he realised something wasn’t right. Flown back to Melbourne, he underwent several tests before the tumour was revealed. ‘‘I cried,’’ he says of the diagnosis. His partner Ruth, constantly by his side, interjects: ‘‘The first

thing Andrew said is “thank god it’s not my mind’’, alluding to his fear of ‘‘losing his marbles’’. Conolly underwent an operation to remove the tumour on January 19, surgeons cutting out as much of the brain as possible without causing irreparable damage. A scar around his skull is clearly evident. ‘‘I actually felt fantastic. My brain was working well,’’ Conolly recalls of his feelings immediately after the operation. The healing process then began, followed by courses of radiation therapy and chemotherapy. The radiation treatment involves two-minute ‘‘zaps’’ at the Sunshine site. Doctors have cautiously given him a year-and-ahalf to live. ‘‘I have a sensation that my process and the way I’ve been responding to what’s been done to me has been quite good,” Conolly says. “So I think maybe a bit longer – maybe three. ‘‘But at the end of the day you have to plan to do everything you want to do in the year-and-a-half.’’ Conolly has chosen to tell his story in the hope of raising awareness and helping others going through the same struggles. ‘‘I think people should know about it, they should be aware. Most people who are older suffer it and they don’t really share any news. They come and go. I felt that I was lucky. It’s such an impactful thing on people’s lives.’’ Conolly is quick to acknowledge Ruth’s support and the need for family support. ‘‘You need a partner. You need someone who works through it with you,’’ he says. ‘‘You can still do a lot of things but not everything. We don’t know if I’ll be able to do all those things later because I’m still in the treatment process.’’ Conolly will undergo further chemotherapy in coming weeks and will then have a better idea of where his future lies. In the meantime, he has adopted a new approach to life as a result of the tumour. He says his fate has helped him reunite with his four children. ‘‘I’ve had issues with kids at a range of times. That’s all been undone now and it’s fantastic. Out of the whole process, the ability to go back to family and forget everything else has been great. ‘‘In one sense I wouldn’t care if I croaked early as a result of it [cancer] because it actually brought back my family.’’ Ramsay is well aware that patients like Conolly line the hallways of hospitals around the country, and the outcome isn’t always positive. But he genuinely loves what he does and says his greatest reward now comes from taking something he has discovered in the lab and convincing his clinical colleagues that it has merit and may improve a patient’s outcome. ‘‘I think that last part of the journey isn’t always horrible. Sometimes people find it an enlightening experience. I wouldn’t say it’s a great experience; it couldn’t possibly be,’’ Ramsay says. ‘‘People die of all sorts of things. You want to make sure they die with dignity, without pain ... you know you’ve given it your best shot.’’ ■ Visit petermac.org

And the mystery object is… Telling the time has become more complicated than it needs to be, writes Rod Easdown

A

That leaves the numbers on the left. Ah. Now Hublot claims to have set a record with this watch by achieving a 50-day power reserve. That is, after you have wound it (yep, you wind it) it will keep going for 50 days before you have to wind it again. (My $80 Swatch goes for three or four years between battery changes and a new battery costs $10.) So those numbers on the left indicate how many days you have left before, ahem, you take the special winding tools out of the schedoni leather and carbon-fibre presentation case, expose the winding crown (it’s under the hinged titanium and carbon-fibre triangle at the top of the watch) and wind. The time-setting mechanism is under another of these little secret panels on the watch’s underside. You’re wondering about the centre barrel thingy with the little drive sprockets at each side? Me too. But as far as I can tell, they’re something to do with the 50-day power

Puppy carers needed!

t this point you’re wondering what exactly it is in the accompanying picture. Scary as it may be, it’s possibly the future of watches. And it’s very, very expensive. So expensive that the 234-megabyte media kit describing it doesn’t mention the price anywhere, but says that just 50 are being made. Always a reliable indicator of a price high enough to affect the balance of trade. It’s made by Swiss watchmaker Hublot and it is called the MP05 La Ferrari. I guess it’s meant to reflect the sort of cutting edge tech of the car. My experience of Ferrari tech is that the only people who understand it are the types who go all hot when evening conversation turns to prime numbers. And so it is with this watch. Nevertheless, there were parts of the media kit I understood. The numbers at the top right show the time; the top number is the hour and the bottom, the minute. The seconds are displayed on the dial right down the bottom centre immediately under the brand name.

reserve and I know for a fact that they do not discharge in turn but all support each other. Whatever that may mean. The watch also has a tourbillon, which is something about countering the effects of gravity on the most delicate components of a hand-wound watch. There are 637 in this one. My view: There are easier ways to tell the time. Take, for example, the watch by Bavarian Crono that replicates the speedometer of the classic 1963 Mercedes-Benz 230SL, one of a number of watches by the German maker replicating the instruments of classic cars. It’s $US350. Elizabeth Franz runs the little company making them and I suggested to her that folk who travel across time zones a lot, and thus wear two watches, might appreciate a matching watch based on the tachometer of the same car – speedo on the left wrist, tacho on the right. She emailed a four-word response: “I’m thinking about it.”

Take care of a puppy and help change a life… Being a Seeing Eye Dog puppy carer is possibly the most enjoyable way to volunteer. Not only do you get to experience the joy of looking after an adorable puppy for about 12 months, without any of the associated costs – you will also enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are assisting someone who is blind to live the life they choose.

The Werribee River is one of the jewels in Wyndham’s crown and I invite all residents to take an early morning walk along the river on a clear, sunny day and you will be amazed at what you will see. There are beautiful old River Red Gums, numerous bird species, and if you are really quiet you may see a platypus or two in the water. I love this river with all its beauty, serenity and history and like so many Wyndham residents, I feel so privileged to live in such a magnificent City. - Heather

News from the Chaffey Ward...

Last week was a very rewarding one for our city. Wyndham City presented a well-balanced Proposed 2013/14 Budget and a quality draft City Plan 2013-17 that endorsed more community engagement and inclusion. Volunteers play an important role in our community and it was great to acknowledge their contributions last week as part of National Volunteer Week. For many people, volunteering is a way of life and Wyndham City has a range of volunteering opportunities on offer. To make a submission on the Proposed 2013/14 Budget, the draft Wyndham City Plan 2013-17 or for more information on volunteer opportunities visit www.wyndham.vic.gov.au - Cr Gautam Gupta

More than just good looks There’s much more to this Porter Davis-designed house than first meets the eye, writes Mark Bunker ts presentation alone is a winning feature, but there’s much more to this Porter Davisdesigned house than contemporary good looks. Its location is a plus for growing families who want access to gym and recreational facilities, and for anyone wanting the quietude that comes with no drive-through traffic. East facing, it captures the morning sun. Sir Walter buffalo lawns, known for their drought-resistance, are a stylish and practical addition to the facade, as is the stone aggregate

I

driveway and stack-stone pillars upon entry. The three-year-old house has four bedrooms. The main has tinted windows providing total privacy, a small retreat, ceiling fan, a walk-in wardrobe, and en suite with dual basins and a rain showerhead. The others have built-in wardrobes, while one like the main bedroom has a fibre optic point providing Foxtel and internet connectivity. They share a sparkling bathroom with skylight. The hallway has low-sheen floor tiles and links to an open lounge room with carpet, textured holland blinds, and an internal

door to the double garage with remotely controlled door. Towards the back is the kitchen featuring stone benches, a Technika 900mm stainless-steel cooker, glass splashback and a large walk-in pantry. The tiled family-meals area has Yamaha surround-sound speakers, and expansive windows including timber framed bi-folding doors that open onto a wide merbau decked pergola that’s fitted with Bose speakers and a ceiling fan. Both side yards have concrete-block walkways and pebbled landscaping.

It’s easy being green Feel the flow of positive energy using smart design principles ustralian homeowners facing rapidly rising energy and water prices are using smart sustainable housing design to cut costs and add capital value to their homes and renovations, according to Archicentre. The building advisory body’s David Hallett says: ‘‘Investors and homeowners recognise that being able to design a sustainable home will save them thousands of dollars in the future and also add extra value to the home when it is sold, with the value going up as energy and water prices continue to rise.’’ Price-conscious home buyers looking for a financial edge when offered the choice between an energy-efficient well-designed home — including rainwater tanks and solar panels — and a poorly designed home, will inevitably make the choice of the home with an inbuilt cost saving program. ‘‘The key to year-round comfort is passive solar design which carefully combines materials, methods, building form and the sun’s natural energy to help keep the house cool in

A

summer and warm in winter,’’ Mr Hallett adds. ‘‘An energy-wise home requires a complex mix of well insulated, high thermal mass, intelligent glazing and ventilation, arranged in a way that enhances comfort.’’ Important factors in the design of an energywise home include: ■ Insulation: Lining the roof/ceiling, walls and floor can reduce heat loss in winter and gain heat during the summer. ■ Materials with a high thermal mass such as stone, brick or rammed earth take a long time to heat up and cool down. Walls with a high thermal mass should be shaded to minimise a heat load in summer. ■ Glass is a very poor insulator. Consider the size, location, glazing type and window shading such as verandahs, canopies or deciduous trees. Position windows away from the western sun. Close curtains and angle blinds to reflect intense heat off the windows during summer. ■ Cross ventilation: Louvres can direct airflow

May 22, 2013

towards the occupant of the room. High level windows can allow hot air to escape while reversible ceiling fans are great in summer and winter.

Family-friendly: Young families will enjoy the parks and playground at Kingsford estate.

Wide open spaces beckon Peet Limited has invested more than $1million in parks and open spaces within its Kingsford community estate oung families looking for a new place to raise their littlies might be delighted in Peet Limited’s Kingsford community in Point Cook. There are 19 home sites for sale in the stage 9a release. These range from 400-576-square metres and start from an affordable $235,000. Kingsford’s newest residents in-waiting, firsthome buyers Robert Costa and Silvana De Oliviera, secured their site after falling for its family-oriented design and open spaces earlier this year. “There’s so much space with parks for kids to

Y

play. It feels like a very open, well-designed community,” Robert says. Starting a family is on the horizon for the newlyweds. “We are thinking of starting a family next year and Kingsford is a great place to raise children. We have a big park close to us and when it’s finished it’s going to be beautiful and so convenient.” Peet has invested more than $1 million in parks and open spaces within the community, including Hargrave Park and Kingsford Common, both of which are a short stroll from the stage 9a home-

sites. The couple are renting in the Point Cook area and are looking forward to moving into their Porter Davis house. They will join more than 300 residents already living in the community, which will eventually be home to nearly 550 households. Peet Limited managing director Brendan Gore said the community was in a handy spot with plenty of amenities nearby. “Kingsford’s ideal location caters to the needs of the modern family with a number of schools close by, and shopping facilities, including the Point Cook Town Centre, Innisfail Village and

Boardwalk shopping centre. Buyers who commute to Melbourne have easy access to the Prince Freeway, while Geelong is a short trip for those seeking a coastal weekend escape.’’ For more information, contact the Kingsford sales team or visit the website.

Y, FRIENDLLD GOOD O N FASHIO . SERVICE

BY EWAN KENNEDY in New York et’s start by talking about the styling of the all-new Jeep Cherokee — because that’s what everyone else is doing after seeing the preliminary photographs. We were among the first in the world to see the mid-size SUV in the metal – at its global revealing at the New York Auto Show. Jeep Cherokee comes with two distinct front ends; one for the models aimed mainly at the street, that features a relatively low spoiler line, the other for the true Jeep off-road versions, and requiring a much steeper approach angle for extreme driving. The off-road Jeeps – which culminate in a super tough model with the excellent title of Trailhawk – have a smaller lower grille and less brightwork and are less polarising in their style. They also have aggressively sharp rear departure angles and good ramp overs thanks to their having higher ground clearance than the 2WD Cherokee. Entry level Jeep Cherokees may sell for as little as $29,990 when they reach Australia late in 2013.

Multiple choice: Styling of the all-new Jeep Cherokee takes a different direction. Engine choices are a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel, a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and a 3.2-litre petrol V6. While the lowest cost Cherokee is aimed at the person looking for a stylish station wagon for on-road use, the others in the range are most definitely intended to be those who like

to get their Jeeps dirty of a weekend. Inside, the styling is up to date, but still has the rugged look that appeals to Jeep buyers.

SPORT ●

Captain steps in to save Team Tiger BY LANCE JENKINSON WHEN the game is on the line, you want your leader to stand up and be counted. With seconds remaining in Saturday’s thriller, Werribee captain Ross Cowlishaw did just that with a goal-saving intercept lunge to ensure a share of the points in a 3-3 draw with Yarra Valley in the Hockey Victoria men’s league 1 at the State Netball and Hockey Centre. ‘‘The reason why he’s the captain of the club is those sorts of efforts,’’ Tigers coach Cam Whyatt told the Weekly. ‘‘Rosco dived in, he hit the ball away and cleared it out, and that was game over.

‘‘He stood up when we needed him.’’ Cowlishaw has been a steadying influence as skipper over a long period for the Tigers. The midfielder has grown with a young side and been a constant in the face of a number of coaching changes in recent years. Whyatt was not understating Cowlishaw’s influence over the team. ‘‘He is one of those blokes, if you go to war, you’d want him in the trenches next to you, because he fights it out till the very end,’’ Whyatt said. ‘‘His leadership qualities, the way he talks to the boys, gets them up for the match is sensational. He’s probably one of the best leaders I’ve been around in hockey.’’

The Tigers went into the match as slight underdogs but showed they were up for the challenge by taking a 2-1 lead into the break. Sean Gardner scored with a diving effort and Josh Pace capped a breathtaking piece of individual brilliance. Brandon Dent had the Tigers three-up after a reverse stick tomahawk goal. But the Tigers could sense that Yarra Valley had more to give and they struck back twice to force a tie. ‘‘They’re a team on the rise, so we knew they were going to come back,’’ Whyatt said. ‘‘I was just glad the boys held on for a draw. ‘‘At this stage of the year, any point is a bit of a

bonus moving forward with the closeness of the competition, and we actually moved up a position.’’ Sam Huxtable was best on field for the Tigers in his first game in a month. The Tigers square off with Melbourne University away on Saturday. In women’s Vic League 2, Werribee totally wiped out the Bayside Cougars in a 5-0 result at Presidents Park. Jenna Howley had the midas touch with two goals, while Laura Baker, Catherine Gladman and Shannon Healand also scored. The Tigers are sitting pretty in equal first place ahead of an away trip to Swinburne on Saturday.

Shark attack makes Devils’ game hell

THE Western Jets have tumbled out of the TAC Cup top eight. The free-falling Jets have failed to yield a point since their victory over Oakleigh Chargers in round four was overruled and deemed a draw due to a scoring error. Their errant kicking for goal was to blame in an 18-point loss to Tasmania at Highgate Recreation Reserve in Craigieburn on Saturday morning. The Jets converted just eight of 23 scoring shots into goals as they trailed at every change. Mitch Norton once again excelled in the forward-half with four goals. Norton has now booted 19 goals in seven matches and will begin to raise the eyebrows of AFL recruiters. Lachlan Hickey, James Robinson and Jake Greiser were also in the Jets’ best players. The Jets have a week’s rest before their mustwin encounter with Murray Bushrangers at the Norm Minns Oval on June 1. TAC Cup Western Jets 8.15 (63) lt Tasmania 12.9 (81)

INBRIEF Netball

WERRIBEE Devils have cowered at the physicality of the Southern Peninsula Sharks in a Big V basketball women’s division 2 top-of-the-ladder clash that failed to live up to the blockbuster billing. The Devils were a shell of the all-conquering team that had won its previous eight games on the bounce. Seven points was all an out-of-sorts Devils had to show for a cringeworthy first half before losing 67-42 on the road at the Hillview Stadium. Devils coach Lloyd Klaman told the Weekly his young team was monstered by a more mature outfit. ‘‘They’re very physical, they’re a little bit taller and their average age is a lot more,’’ he said. ‘‘We’ve got two girls who are 30 and 31, but the rest are kids and almost all of the girls they [ 38 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

play are between 25 and 28. They are mature and real physical.’’ The Devils were not without their chances in their first half of the horror show. They had 33 field goal attempts, but could only land three. The more they tried, the uglier it got. ‘‘We just had one of those games where we could not hit a shot,’’ Klaman said. ‘‘We missed a lot of easy shots. ‘‘We probably missed eight or 10 two-foot shots in the first quarter. ‘‘After a while, the ring started looking pretty small for the girls.’’ Trailing 35-7 at half-time, you have to give the Devils credit for not simply rolling over. They came out in the third and won the quarter and finished off with a solid fourth to

May 22, 2013

add some respectability to the scoreboard. Klaman is concerned about the Devils’ poor starts, which are becoming a worrying trend for a team that wants to be in title contention. ‘‘We just haven’t been getting off to good starts and it’s hard to play from behind all the time,’’ he said. ‘‘That’s one thing that really concerns me.’’ The Devils can expect another physical test when Keilor Thunder pays a visit on Saturday night. In the men’s championship, Werribee Devils fell to sixth after a 110-78 road loss to the Corio Bay Stingrays. Josh Oswald (15 points, seven rebounds and six assists) and Jordan Hughes (14 points and six rebounds) were the shining lights for the Devils. — Lance Jenkinson

Werribee Centrals have pummelled Corio 52-18 to make it seven straight wins in the Geelong and District Netball League A-grade on Saturday. The Centurions continue to be well served by defensive duo Amanda Wilson and Noni McClure. Ellie Tubbs posed the biggest threat on the front line with 30 goals.

Soccer Werribee City was swatted away 5-1 by allconquering ladder-leader Heidelberg United in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1 on Sunday. The Bees slipped to eighth and saw their goal difference go into the red as a result of the heavy loss. In other results, Hoppers Crossing lost 3-1 to Corio; Truganina took a 3-1 blow from Brimbank Stallions, while Point Cook drew 2-2 with Melbourne City.


Warriors down, but walking tall BY LANCE JENKINSON HOPPERS Crossing walked off Hogans Road Oval with their heads held high on Saturday, despite a 46-point loss to Altona Vikings in the Western Region Football League division 1. Seven days earlier, the Warriors were blasted by coach David Mitchell for a distinct lack of effort in the game against the Sunshine Kangaroos, in which captain Brad Murphy described his team as ‘‘noncompetitive’’. Returning home for the first time in three weeks, the Warriors knew their coaching staff and supporters would judge them on their effort, and they gave their all for 120 minutes. They were simply outclassed by a visiting team with all the ingredients to make it back to back premierships. ‘‘We copped a fair blast after the Sunshine game and wanted to see a response from the players and ’Mitch’ got it,’’ Murphy said. ‘‘The two losses we had before Altona, we got four or five goals down and just rolled over and showed no fight whatsoever, so that was a real emphasis this week. ‘‘If this game was judged on effort, I reckon we would’ve won the game. ‘‘Compared to the week before, our effort was 100 per cent better and it can be a real building block for the rest of the season.’’ The Warriors unearthed a real competitor in young forward Robert Wittmer. No doubt Wittmer got under the skin of the Vikings defenders, even if he crossed the line at times. At least it was a real show of fight from a young man who was eager to unsettle an opposition. ‘‘He was a real presence for us,’’ Murphy said. ‘‘He was a target, he led well and marked well and kicked a couple of goals.’’ Some of the lesser lights are making their mark in the absence of a handful of injured players. Adam Poland, Corey Muscat and Jordan Moody are making compelling cases for regular inclusion. Mature-aged recruit Michael Licciardo was a vociferous inclusion as a key defensive post. ‘‘He gave us a lot of run and a lot of voice, which we sort of been lacking,’’ Murphy said.

Line of fire: Hoppers Crossing’s Brydon Coles takes a courageous mark in front of Altona’s Richard Knight. Picture: Shawn Smits

It was an old head in caretaker captain Mathew Ryan who claimed best on ground honours for the Warriors. Ryan was paid little respect and relished the freedom and run and set up off half-back and through the middle.

Sharks run away with points in last quarter SANCTUARY Lakes turned up the heat in the last quarter to run out 28-point winners over Caroline Springs in the Western Region Football League division 2 at Featherbrook Reserve on Saturday. Scores were deadlocked at threequarter-time with little separating the two sides, but it was the Sharks who finished the game full of run with a five-goals-to-one last term burst. Jessi Lampi starred and Matthew Debono booted four goals in the Sharks second win in three matches.

■ Manor Lakes put West Footscray to the sword in a 155-point thrashing at Howqua Reserve. Full-forward Ty Priest booted 10 goals for the Storm and brought up his half century in the process. ■ Glenorden took its show on the road to Dempster Park, flogging a goal-less North Sunshine by 210 points to make it seven straight wins to start the season. The Hawks boom recruit Damien Yze booted 10 goals and has 27 in his past three matches.

‘‘I don’t understand how clubs just let him run around without a man,’’ Murphy said. ‘‘He’s got beautiful foot skills and sets us up from half back.’’ The Warriors season has reached a fork in the road at 3-3 and Saturday’s away trip to Albion looms as a must win.

SCOREBOARD WRFL Division 1 Around the grounds: Deer Park 38.14 (242) d North Footscray 2.2 (14), Hoppers Crossing 12.11 (83) lt Altona 19.15 (129), Port Melbourne Colts 16.14 (110) d Albion 9.12 (66), St Albans 12.14 (86) lt Sunshine Kangaroos 14.7 (91), Yarraville-Seddon 3.5 (23) lt Spotswood 25.21 (171).

Sides hit bottom WERRIBEE Districts and Fitzroy Lions have struggled in the first six rounds of the Victorian Amateur Football Association Premier B. Both sides are winless with the Tigers rock bottom with 39.67% and the Roys one rung above them with 51.11%. Mercifully, the pain will end for one of these teams on Saturday, when they meet at Soldiers Reserve. The Tigers will go in on the back of their best showing of the season to date, a 44-point loss to St Kevin’s Old Boys. They were in the contest until three-quarter-time, but SKOBs ran away with the contest with a fivegoals-to-two last term. Ryan Harrington booted three goals for the second week running for the Tigers, while Matthew Dean continued his sparkling form to be the best for his side for the third time in four weeks. In division 3, winless Old Westbourne went down by 83 points to St Francis Xavier at the Westbourne School Ground. Jesse Humphreys was best for the Warriors and capped a stellar game with two goals. In division 4, Point Cook fought back from 26-point quarter-time deficit to beat North Brunswick by 28 points at Saltwater Reserve. The Bulldogs, led by Travis Cassidy and four-goal forward Ricky Munn, booted six goals to one in the last term. Meanwhile, Werribee Centrals edged out Corio by 22 points in a Geelong and District Football League Smiths Holden Cup arm wrestle on Saturday. The Centurions were made to work every step of the way to bring up their third consecutive victory. Brad McNicol and Nathan Lovell, who booted four goals, continued their white hot form for the Centurions. — Lance Jenkinson

A Werribee Tigers promotion

SPORT ●

West Wing Chris Gallagher is one of the hard working team off the field that keeps the Werribee Football Club heavily involved in the Wyndham Community. Chris started in a part time role but it quickly emerged that, that was not enough and Chris went full time as Community Development Manager in 2009 and now has an assistant who also works part time. His assistant is Jye Bolton one of our playing list.

Tigers burn bright again

SW: What does the role entail ?

WERRIBEE Tigers returned to their earlyseason form in the VFL on Saturday, belting Coburg by 89 points at Avalon Airport Oval. After three consecutive losses, Werribee had to make a stand and did, effectively ending the contest with nine goals to three in the first quarter. And the onslaught continued as Coburg had no answers to the potent Tigers’ attack, Werribee finishing with 14 goalkickers in a 27.10 (172)-12.11 (83) victory. Competition leading goalkicker Ben Warren (pictured) kicked five, his first bag since booting 11 in the season opener against Port Melbourne, while impressive Tasmania recruit Ben Brown also kicked five. With Addam Maric and Scott Clouston also kicking three apiece and plenty of midfielders snaring goals as well, the Tigers won every quarter but the last. Werribee’s back six also proved a major headache for Coburg, with the Tigers managing just eight goals to three-quarter-time before kicking four in the final quarter. It was the consistency across the four quarters that impressed most. In the hefty losses to Williamstown, Sandringham and Geelong in recent weeks the Tigers have been competitive for part or the majority of games only to drop off for periods, resulting in losses by 83, 64 and 55 points. But Werribee always had the ascendancy against Coburg, kicking nine, six, eight and four goals in the quarters. Scott West challenged his players to win the final term, and though they lost it by two points, the attacking endeavour was still there. ‘‘We had a frustrating three weeks prior so the win came at a good time,’’ West said. ‘‘We got off to a good start which always gets the guys up and about. The pleasing part was we didn’t drop off after that. We were outscored in the last quarter, which was a challenge I put on the guys, but we lost two rotations off the bench which made it difficult.’’

CG: My role involves coordinating numerous community initiatives through the use of Werribee players and coaches. Currently we are working with the Wyndham City Council running the football component of their “Active Kids” program and also with the Australian Sports Commission running their ‘Active – After School Care’ program in Wyndham. I also help host a number of events throughout the year including Auskick coaching courses, introduction to AFL days, themed game day events, WRFL interleague games and the Morris Barlow Squad. The remainder of the year will see ‘The Huddle’ in schools program commence with the use of Victorian University students delivering a 6 week football program. With the help of Majak Daw and the multicultural department of AFL Victoria, the Werribee Football Club will provide diverse communities the chance to showcase their skills on the 14th of July as part of the AFL’s multicultural round. SW: You must get some interesting comments from the students, any memorable ones? CG: This year the kids have taken a liking to our 6’6 Tasmanian recruit Ben Brown. He has been likened to Sideshow Bob from the Simpsons, Redfoo, and numerous other clown like figures, which usually gets a good laugh. SW: You play footy yourself, this year at Mansfield, take us through your footy journey? CG: I grew up in Geelong playing alongside Jimmy Bartel at Bell Park FC in the GFL and then got into University at Latrobe University at Mt Buller so I started playing for Mansfield FC in the GVFL. I was lucky enough to win a premiership there in 2009 under Craig Kelly. In 2010 I started playing football here for Altona under ex Werribee player Anthony Eames and played under him for 3 years. This year I have an ex team mate coaching Mansfield so I am back there. SW: How was winning the 2012 WRFL Premiership with Altona ? CG: It is always a great reward for the players and everyone involved to bring home the premiership cup at the end of the season, but to do it by 1 point against a powerhouse club such as Spotswood was a great feeling. My first year at the club they beat us by 200 plus points, so to turn that result into a premiership 3 years later was a credit to Eamesy and the support staff. A lot of the guys there had been playing together since under 14s, so it meant a lot to the players and I was grateful to be a part of their first division 1 grand final. SW: Away from footy and the footy club what do you like to do ?

BY DANIEL PAPROTH

Werribee has a bye this weekend before a Foxtel Cup match against Queanbeyan at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night and a home game against North Ballarat on the following Sunday. West said the fixturing was not ideal but said the Foxtel Cup would be a chance for some of the development team players to prove their wares. ‘‘We haven’t discussed it yet but one thing I can guarantee is it will provide a great opportunity for the development boys,’’ he said. ‘‘It will give a few of the older bodies a rest and we don’t know how the Kangaroos want to approach it yet.’’

WYNDHAM PRIVATE MEDICAL CLINIC

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Getting the clear picture on medical imaging Changing from one trusted medical professional to another at a new clinic, such as MIA Wyndham Radiology at the Wyndham Private Medical Centre in Werribee, can be a big step. But what patients may not know is that the radiologists and staff who work there are the same wellknown professionals from Werribee Mercy Hospital and the Hoppers Crossing radiology clinic. Wyndham Radiology is part of MIA Radiology, a member of the I-Med Network — the largest radiology provider in the country. The new clinic is one of 50 MIA practices across the Melbourne metropolitan area, providing a range of comprehensive services to people living in areas such as Werribee.

...exquistite “imaging...much lower radiation... ”

“Wyndham Radiology has stateof-the-art equipment which allows us to provide exquisite, quality imaging but with much lower radiation dose levels than have been the case in the past,” he says. “The low-dose CT scanners at our clinics in particular mean patients are exposed to much less radiation than would be the case on typical CT scanners.

“We’ll soon be installing a new MRI machine and this will mean we are able to provide the full range of imaging in the Werribee area. The MRI will complement the range of ultrasound, nuclear medicine and CT services we currently provide. And we conduct mammograms and minor surgical procedures, and provide injections for people with sore joints. “A lot of places do X-rays and ultrasounds but don’t always have a resident radiologist on site to ensure the most appropriate and highest quality imaging is performed. We do. This makes us more efficient and, being part of the MIA group, we have the advantage of access to a large network of subspecialised colleagues should we require an expert second opinion.”

Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss is Werribeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gain It was Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gain when Iranian-born Dr Seyed Soltani (pictured) chose to move here to take up a general practice at Wyndham Medical Centre. Canada and the US were in the mix but the promise of a better quality of life endorsed by friends already here cemented Dr Soltaniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision and he has no regrets. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Living here was challenging at first. I found it hard to fit in and felt lonely away from family and friends, but as I got to know people and my English improved I knew Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d made the right decision,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Dr Soltani. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I knew from my research that Melbourne was rated one of the most liveable cities and I found that was so. Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a Werribee resident and I hope one day my parents and two siblings can join me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dr Soltani graduated from his medical studies in Iran in 2009. He worked there while continuing further study before arriving in Australia in 2010 to complete a three-month bridging course before exams.

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now delighted to be working at Wyndham Private Medical Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a very good facility with a bright future. I am very glad to be here and look forward to establishing relationships with patients and local residents.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

SERVICES OFFERED • Cardiac Consultation • Echocardiography • Stress Echocardiography • Testing of pacemakers / defibrillators

Nestor Fuertef, medical director of Hoppers Lane General Practice clinic in Werribee - part of the new Wyndham Private Medical Centre - recommends people get the vaccine sooner rather than later.

“We give flu vaccinations normally as early as March and up to mid-June. They become effective within two weeks of giving the vaccine and last for about a year,” Dr Fuertef says.

Professor Robert Whitbourn is the director of Werribee Heart. He and the team of Cardiologists, Cardiac Nurses, Echo-cardiographers and experienced office staff, strive to provide excellence in cardiac care.

“Thanks to the government’s national immunisation scheme, the vaccine is available free to people at high risk of contracting the flu, including pregnant women, people aged more than 65, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, diabetics, asthmatics and sufferers of kidney and blood diseases.”
