The Local Toorbul community showed up to support the grand opening of the Medicrew Toorbul Outreach Clinic on Tuesday 23rd of January for a morning tea.
Medicrew Toorbul is a general practice dedicated to providing better access to healthcare. Their advanced approach means that they have Nurse Practitioners (NPs) at their clinic and staff who are at the highest level of the nursing industry.
Dr James Torrance and Mark Van Wyk Directors of Medicrew were pleased to see such a great turn out for the grand opening, and welcomed the community to their new medical clinic. They hope to increase the opening days as soon as possible; however, they will need the support of the local community and the people of Toorbul, Meldale and Donnybrook to continue. Dr James and Mark were pleased there were 11 bookings for their first day of opening.
To start, the clinic will be open once a week on a Tuesday from 9am till 4pm, all bookings will be managed through their twin waters branch. They will accept same day bookings also.
Some of the services they provide are;
General Health and Wellbeing
Sleep & Respiratory Problems

Ordering of diagnostic tests (x-rays, ultrasounds, Blood Tests, referrals, scripts, consults & Morel)
And Much More
This is great news for the community of Toorbul, Donnybrook and Meldale, this means residents now do not have to drive 30 minutes or more to get these services provided.
The clinic is working out of the Toorbul Community Hall and does have a private consultation room. Medical records can be sent to the outreach clinic; however, you will need to complete a form.
They are a mixed billing practice and offer bulk billing to all eligible patients holding a valid pension card, DVA, Health Care, disability or Concession card. They also bulk bill all children under 16. For all other patients, a small out of pocket fee applies which does not include costs associated with consumables (eg Dressings). The fees may vary due to the time spent with the clinician.
