ABOUT BALINGUP DOCTORS SURGERY

This practice was opened in May 2019, to fill a need within the community for medical services available locally, making health care more accessible.

Our beautiful premises have been refurbished, giving a new lease of life to a lovely building that has lain empty for some years, after previous incarnations as an art gallery, antique store and tourist information office. We have endeavoured to maintain the original charm of the building, while incorporating the necessary requirements of a modern functional medical centre. Nestled amongst spectacular gardens, we hope you will enjoy visiting as much as we enjoy being here.

MISSION STATEMENT

This practice is committed to providing the highest standard of patient care, and promotion of disease prevention. We aim to treat all patients with dignity and respect, without discrimination, and with particular consideration of patient autonomy in decision making.

OUR GOALS

To paraphrase from the Modern Hippocratic Oath, Written in 1964 by Louis Lasagna, Academic Dean of the School of Medicine at Tufts University:

I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

  • I will practice medicine in accordance with established scientific evidence, and pass on what I have learned to future doctors.

  • I will endeavour to treat illness with consideration of all options available and avoiding unnecessary intervention.

  • I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh surgical or medicinal intervention.

  • I will be honest in admitting “I don’t know” when this is so, and will seek advice of colleagues when this will be beneficial for the patient.

  • I will respect the privacy of my patients, and hold all I am told in confidence. Most especially I will respect a patients’ wishes when it comes to matters of life and death.

  • I will remember that I do not treat a test result, or a disease, but an unwell human being, with a family and livelihood that must also be considered if I am to adequately care for them.

  • I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

  • I will remember that I remain a member of society, with obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

  • If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.
