The Melbourne Clinic started on 3 December 2018 to provide specialist psychiatric consultation and advice to GPs and EMPHN-commissioned mental health and AOD service providers.
The service is staffed by psychiatrists providing specialist support/advice and secondary consultation. Primary consultation may also be available for complex cases, on a case-by-case basis.
Clinic-based education to general practice teams can also be arranged by contracting The Melbourne Clinic on the below number to discuss your requirements.
