The Peel and Rockingham Kwinana Mental Health Service (PaRK MHS) and GP down south have recently established a joint Consultation Liaison Service between the two services at the Peel Health Hub. A Psychiatric Registrar from PaRK MHS commenced a weekly session at the Peel Health Hub in February and will provide additional support to the PYMS GPs to sustain their workload – with diagnostic clarification and treatment guidance. This initiative will assist to relieve the load of referrals to the Peel MHS Assessment Treatment Team and will help to keep clients in a primary care setting.
GP down south also works collaboratively with PaRK MHS through the Clinical Care Coordination team at the Peel Health Hub who work closely with the Psychiatric Liaison staff at the Peel Health Campus Emergency Department.
GP down south is an exemplary not-for-profit community organisation. We have been providing health and wellbeing services in the Peel regions and the South West of WA since 1994.
