A medical centre is one place that is perhaps at the centre of all communities. After all, it helps people look after their health! Dr Arwen has only worked at the Centre for 10 months, but along with the rest of the team at Park Medical Group Vic Park, she has devoted herself to providing the best service to build a happier, healthier community.
When a coffee or lunch run is required, Arwen’s go-to is destination is Bespoke by Barista HQ or Vic Park Larder. Then, she’s ready for a big day of helping patients.
While some people come straight to the clinic for their appointment, Arwen said a lot of people love its convenient location, which can lead to a strange sight! “People sometimes bring their shopping trolleys in for their doctor’s appointments! It’s great that people can achieve multiple things with one trip to the shops.”
When she’s not busy at the practice, Arwen loves visiting the Vic Park markets, and supporting her local community. “I’ve proudly marched with the Vic Park Pride crew, which the practice has sponsored.” You can also find her visiting Woolworths to pick up some healthy meal options. “The tasty, cooked chooks from Woolies are so handy! They’re perfect for a low carb, healthy fat diet.”
Arwen has seen some awesome changes happen around the Vic Park community — though one did seem pretty obvious! “The opening of Park Medical Group Vic Park was one of the best things! But also, the redevelopment of the John McMillan Park; it’s an amazing playground for kids.”
While Arwen hasn’t worked at Park Medical Group Vic Park for too long, she already loves the practice and told us a few things that make it special.
“We have a beautiful, new, custom-designed practice. We have an amazing team including our reception staff, nursing staff, physios and of course, the doctors. We all have different special interests which allow us to provide holistic care. We also have a second location where we can still access all of our notes, which improves our accessibility for our patients.”
So if you’re ever feeling under the weather or just have some questions about your health, make sure you visit Arwen and the team at Park Medical Group Vic Park. They’ve got a wealth of knowledge under the belt and can’t wait to help you out. Here’s to good health!
