Myrtleford Health Services

Standish Street Surgery offers a complete range of health services to Myrtleford and the surrounding areas.

Our Doctors provide comprehensive general practice care to all age groups. Our surgery can provide diagnosis, treatment and advice to you in the following areas: 

Pathology tests

Dorevitch Pathology provides a daily blood and specimen collection service at the surgery. Staff from Dorevitch attend every weekday, 8.00-1.00, and may carry out home visits where necessary. No appointment is necessary.

Home Visits

Home visits are available for regular patients whose condition prevents them from attending the surgery. Your doctor will determine the timing and priority of your request with you or a relative if necessary.

Telephone Access

GPs in the practice are usually unavailable to speak with during normal surgery hours unless this has been requested by the doctor. If the GP is with a patient, a message will be taken by the receptionist and given to the doctor. GPs generally attend to phone messages at the end of their morning and afternoon sessions.

Reminder System

Our practice is committed to preventive care. We may issue you with a reminder notice from time to time offering you preventive health services appropriate to your care. If you do not wish to be part of this recall system please let us know at reception.

Facilities

Teaching

Standish Street Surgery is a registered training practice with the Murray City Country Coast GP Training Program. We have experience in supervising and training Basic, Advanced and Subsequent Registrars who are working towards their Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practice.  Our Registrars are committed doctors who are keen to experience rural General Practice and we hope you will welcome them into our wonderful community.

Standish Street Surgery also takes Medical Students from Melbourne University on a regular basis. It is always interesting to hear medical news and developments from our universities and to give the students a practical insight into working in a rural practice. It is both beneficial to the patients and the students
