In My Practice: Patient-centred care
Camp Hill Healthcare has been in operation since 1947, when it began as a ‘traditional’ solo practice. It has since developed and grown into a modern practice with a strong multidisciplinary team that delivers a varied range of services.
Jan Chaffey, Camp Hill Healthcare chief executive officer (CEO), feels the demographic served by the practice, which is located 6 km from central Brisbane, has changed significantly over time.
‘The area has changed from, say, 15 years ago, when it was an older area. Over the past decade the older folk have relocated and younger families have been moving into the area,’ she told Good Practice.
This evolving demographic has resulted in a very broad range of patients for Camp Hill Healthcare.
‘We have patients that attend here who are well over 100 years of age and patients who are yet to be born,’ Dr Ian Williams, practice owner and principal, told Good Practice.
