What GenWise is all aboutGeneral Practice with a difference
GenWise was established by a group of Australian General Practitioners who have dedicated their careers to improving the standard of aged care in Australia. General Practitioner owned and operated, GenWise is a clinic “for doctors, by doctors” with no lock in contracts, no minimum billings and most importantly a strong belief in preserving doctor-patient continuity.
In 2016 there are more than 275,000 older australians living in residential aged care. Many of these people are without a regularly visiting General Practitioner. In one of the most vulnerable and challenging stages of life they are being let down.
GenWise is doing what we can to help solve this problem by taking a few simple steps
– Raise awareness and the profile of aged care medicine amongst General Practice communities
– Empower and support General Practitioners to start visiting a local aged care facility
– Educate General Practitioners, aged care facilities, patients and families on the essentials of good quality, holistic health care for older Australians
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
GenWise isn’t rocket science – it is just good old fashioned medicine driven by the belief that every older Australian deserves choice and timely access to quality medical care. Since 2013 GPs across Australia have been joining our community that now reaches far and wide – from Darwin to Tasmania. But we have barely scratched the surface. We still need more GPs to join our cause which is where you come in.
Even if you are completely new to aged care you can help – caring for just handful of patients at your local aged care facility will help make a change.
