Workers Compensation and Work Cover
The doctors of Greenway Medical Centre can offer assistance in optimising recovery from a work injury. They form part of a support team that includes the employer, insurers and any workplace rehabilitation providers or allied health practitioners who are involved in the treatment of the work injury.
By having all parties involved the results of an individual’s capacity can help guide those tasks for enabling recovery at work while offering the best possible outcome for those who are injured.
When the time absent from work is not medically necessary, it may delay recovery, and the longer someone is off work, the less likely they are to return.
There is a reasonable body of evidence to suggest that where possible, returning to work can help promote healing and facilitate recovery.
Within a consultation, the doctor can help assess and diagnose the injury, and from there, treat or refer to an allied health professional or specialist. They can also provide a certificate of capacity and help in setting expectations of recovery and returning to work.
Working can be therapeutic by promoting recovery, but also a safe work environment developed from the assessment can offer physical, social and financial benefits.
Pre-employment & Commercial Driving Medicals
The doctors at Greenway Medical Centre also offer pre-employment and commercial driving medicals. These assessments can also provide an excellent opportunity to discuss injury and disease prevention, and so promote a healthier lifestyle.
