Information for Patients
We have expertise in the management of work-related musculoskeletal disorders, especially back and neck injuries, limb injuries and overuse disorders, in addition to the provision of support and guidance to deal with the psychological impact of illness and injury. We have a focus on recovery and rehabilitation.
With work-related injury you not only need expert medical care, but guidance and support to deal with the system to enable you to recover. This includes communication with your employer, rehabilitation providers and insurers, in addition to other health practitioners involved in your care.
Our priority is to provide the best treatment and professional guidance to overcome the adverse effects on health from hazards at work and guide you through the maze and uncertainty of the workers compensation system with your best medical interests at heart.
Normally you will be referred by your general practitioner where our expertise is required. In situations where it is agreed with you and your doctor, we may co-ordinate ongoing treatment and rehabilitation in co-operation with your employer, the rehabilitation provider and the insurer. We can also provide advice to employers and insurers about rehabilitation and management of injuries, but we can only provide treatment in circumstances where you agree that our doctors take on a treating role, usually on referral from your doctor.
We only provide information to your employer or the insurer with your consent.
