Occupational medicine is a challenging and specialised area of practice. An effective medical practitioner can provide the key to successful rehabilitation and return to work. CHG Clinics specialise in occupational medicine and operate from three locations in the Adelaide metropolitan area – Mile End, Gillman and Elizabeth Vale.
The CHG team of doctors provide immediate and extensive casualty treatment for injuries sustained in the workplace including soft tissue injuries, minor fractures, lacerations, abrasions, foreign bodies in eyes and burns. Each clinic has specialised medical facilities and diagnostic equipment including X-ray facilities, slit lamp examination, spirometry and audiological assessments.
In addition to immediate casualty treatment, CHG doctors remain involved in the treatment and assessment of work injuries providing continuity, crucial to the effective management of an injury.
CHG medical practitioners have a detailed understanding of the work environment and the importance of an appropriate, early, return-to-work program. Our doctors understand the importance of liaising with employers and other health professionals to ensure an injured worker can return to work as soon as practical. The CHG integrated model and interdisciplinary workforce ensure that a doctor’s treatment and assessment is integrated with other health professionals and the overall rehabilitation process.
CHG medical practitioners have an excellent and current network of medical specialists that can be engaged in the management of certain injuries or diseases requiring specialist intervention. CHG’s own team of occupational physicians are available to work with employers, compensating authorities and treating medical practitioners to provide expert advice and direction about the management of compensable injuries and effective strategies for return to work.
