Seeking General Practitioner

HepatitisWA and the Deen Clinic are expanding their services in Northbridge and you can be a part of it! We are looking for GPs to work as part of our new primary health clinic to deliver healthcare to our priority populations in Northbridge.

HepatitisWA and the Deen Clinical services provide bulk billed, easily accessible, culturally appropriate, and non-judgmental clinical services and community health promotion and education. Our clinical team includes a clinic coordinator, clinic nurses, phlebotomists, and GP(s). The new purpose-built clinical spaces have just been completed and we are looking for GP’s who share our values to join the team.

The target populations for the service are homeless, street present, and at-risk populations – including young people, and Aboriginal. HepatitisWA has new referral pathways and expects to have enough patients to keep a GP busy every day. The clinic is open 0900 – 1700 and takes appointments and walk-ins.

Special interest in women’s health, chronic disease management, General practice, mental health, and reproductive health is desirable.

Welcome to HepatitisWA

The word hepatitis means inflammation of the liver, which is the body’s normal response to infection and toxic stimuli.

The liver defends itself by trying to destroy or seal off viruses, damaged liver tissue or dangerous substances such as chemicals, alcohol or other drugs. This inflammatory response can protect against infection or substance but may also cause damage in itself. .Viral hepatitiscan be caused by any of the six hepatitis viruses which are identified as A, B, C, D, E and G.

Hepatitis A

Causes acute, short term infection.
