Cradle to grave service
The Panaceum group brings a unique service to the Midwest community which provides obstetric services through to nursing home care. We provide cradle to grave medicine, choosing breadth and quality of service over other models.
Investing in the next generation
We have a long tradition of teaching medical students, registrars and nursing students as part of the commitment to teaching the next generation. The Panaceum Group is committed to training our staff members and managers and to offer upskilling options to all our employees. The Directors Pathway offers new challenges for those who desire more ownership and increased responsibilities.
Panaceum Group Values
The business model of the Panaceum Group is built on strong values. The Group has a legacy of investing in the community, stability, growth and a wide range of services which include those that are profitable and those that are loss making, emphasising continuity and breadth of care for the Geraldton Community.
We have always maintained a policy of allowing practitioners to set their own fees in order to bill compassionately and only ever sets a ceiling fee to enable patients to be able to be cared for by a variety of practitioners.
Bulk Billing service to all nursing homes
Cradle to grave medicine means caring for people in all stages of their lives, including the elderly. Panaceum Medical and UMP are the only practices in town that have maintained a weekly bulk billing service to nursing home residents, and we will continue to look after this vulnerable population in Geraldton.
Veteran’s Affairs patients
The Panaceum Group doctors will see Veteran’s Affairs patients and assist with the co-ordination of all care needs.
Service to Aboriginal clients
GMG and UMP have a significant percentage of aboriginal clients outside the GRAMS clientele, that reflects the percentage proportion of aboriginal people in the Australian community.
Substance Misuse and Addiction Medicine
Several of our GP’s have provided the foremost service to those suffering from drug addiction in Geraldton. We currently have GP’s specialising in substance misuse rehabilitation at both of our practices.
Sponsoring community events
The Panaceum Group regularly sponsors community events such as Panaceum Sun City Outdoor Cinema and Aidan’s Place Lego Group.
Making it easier for our doctors
Sustainable work pattern
We actively promote a sustainable work pattern and do not encourage high turnover of cases or unhealthy work hours. The group has a strong tradition of facilitating female practitioners along with male practitioners to have the most flexible working arrangements and actively redresses earning capacity between female and male practitioners.
Cover for doctors taking holidays
We have been successful in ensuring our doctors take their holidays, without having those doctors arrange their own expensive and hard to get locums. Doctors can take their well deserved break knowing that their GMG & UMP colleagues or locums are looking after their patients and checking their results.
Option to work at other community health services
We have always facilitated that all doctors have the ability to additionally practice at centres which may provide services for the disadvantaged. GMG actively encourages and supports practitioners to work at GRAMS and the Women’s Resource Centre. GMG assists in supporting practitioners to develop the antenatal services at GRAMS.
Supporting our doctors at all times
We have given study support, coaching, financial and other support to (migrant) doctors, staff and their families when they have found themselves in difficulty.
The business model of the Panaceum Group is built on strong values. The group has a legacy of investing in the community, stability, growth and a wide range of services which include those that remunerate well and those that are loss making, emphasising continuity and breadth of care for the Midwest Community. We are grateful and proud that the success of our approach is reflected in the number of new and returning patients.
