Cure sometimes. Relieve often. Care always.
This Surgery opened its doors around 1987 in unit 3, 488 Walter Road East, Bayswater as part of the Magro Family's vision to open a Medical Centre.
In 2000 the surgery re-located to its present location unit 5/488 Walter Road East, Bayswater, and the present principal is Dr Rohan Gay and the manager is Ms. Cheree Matthews.
Since opening Walter Road East General Practitioners (formerly Drs Dyson & Gay General Practitioners), has grown from a 2-doctor to a 9-doctor practice with 3 practice nurses, a clinical psychologist.
We have cultivated close working, professional relationships with our neighbours Bayswater Physiotherapy, Night and Day pharmacy and Western Diagnostics Pathology and Bayswater Allied Health.
Walter Road East General Practitioners received the top honor from, Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL), a leading provider in accreditation services. AGPAL Chair Dr Richard Choong said the accreditation award shows that the practice makes a significant investment in quality on a day-to-day basis from the top down. Walter Road East General Practitioners proudly displays the AGPAL logo for all their patients to see.
Walter Road East General Practitioners regularly hosts and supervises registrars from the Western Australian General Practice Education and Training Program (WAGPET) since 2003, including our present registrars. Four of our permanent doctors are former WAGPET registrars of the practice and our current allocation of registrars means that for the first time we have a doctor in each of our 8 consulting rooms.
Dr Gay is an external clinical teacher for WAGPET and conducts around a dozen teaching visits to registrars in their assigned training practices each year. He is a WAGPET registrar selection interviewer, and will also be teaching at WAGPET training workshops.
Our practice was honoured with the WAGPET Award for Best Teaching Practice in 2007 under its then name Drs Dyson and Gay General Practitioners.
Dr Rohan Gay examiner for the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) fellowship exams held twice a year.
In addition to its WAGPET commitments, the practice has hosted medical students from the University of Western Australia (UWA) since the late 90s and from the University of Notre Dame Australia (UNDA) since 2009.
We are committed to excellence in general practice. Amongst our 3000+ patients (whole patient equivalents as per the practice incentives program) are up to 4 generations of local families and workers from the surrounding industry.
The practice was part of the National Primary Care Collaboration Initiative and our work on developing a flexible appointment system was presented nationally by then manager Mrs. Connie Meechin. This system has since been adopted at other practices.
Our practice is fully computerised and has amassed a huge range of local and online clinical support resources for both patients and doctors. Our medical software is highly customized and utilised to the highest level possible to implement preventative care activities (as recommended by the RACGP Guidelines for preventive activities in general practice), chronic disease management, patient recalls, doctor reminders and inter doctor and staff communication.
Our practice regularly submits data to the Perth Primary Care Network on our performance with regards to diabetes management, hypertension and cholesterol management and in fact our software has been customized to import, screen and reset recalls for a wider range of clinical data than most other general practices. We have fortnightly clinical and administrative meetings for our doctors and monthly meetings for our administrative staff to assist in improving our services.
