Primary health care

Sacred Heart Mission’s General Practitioner (GP) service in St Kilda provides private consultations with a GP and Practice Nurse.

Open from 10am-1pm on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, the GP Clinic provides primary health care to people who do not have a GP or struggle to access or feel at ease attending mainstream medical services. The GP Clinic is purposed to put these barriers aside and focus on the health care needs of the individual.

Like all our engagement hubs at the Mission, the GP Clinic service is designed to be a welcoming and non-judgmental introduction to the Mission where people experiencing homelessness can feel safe and comfortable, optimising their access to the general medical support and referrals they may need. This also enables people to easily connect with our Support Workers, Case Managers and our other co-located facilities and support available.

To encourage access, our Support Workers at the Mission’s other services encourage and facilitate voluntary client visits to the doctor. This is achieved through the same dignified, welcoming, people-centred approach that characterises our work. Our roaming specialist Support Staff are also on hand to assist with challenging client presentations.
