Our Unit is staffed by a GP and a nurse on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The most reliable way to contact us is via e-mail. Telephone messages may take longer to respond to.  Our main aim is to help improve communication between Peninsula Health and local GPs in relation to patient care and service access. Have any communication issues caused clinical concerns for you? Would you like more information on our website? Please let us know.

If your or your practice manager email address changes let us know. We communicate with you directly via email with;


This short newsletter is GP focussed and contains important information about Peninsula Health services. We write it and send it via our GP Practice Manager database at least quarterly and more frequently if needed.


These emails are sent when an urgent service change or alert occurs. They are brief and contain information on a few issues only.

Are Your Details Correct?

Let us know if your practice manager email address changes so we can keep in contact.

Peninsula Health uses the National Human Services Directory (NHSD) to correspond with GPs/GP Clinics. If your service is currently listed in NHSD but the information is incorrect or incomplete please email updates to nhsd@healthdirect.org.au. If your service is not listed in NHSD please register.

The NHSD is a government supported comprehensive listing of health and social services including GPs, private specialists, hospitals and allied health practitioners. GPs and general public can use the directory to search for services according to area or service type.

The public face of the NHSD is linked to the Better Health Channel website.
