Niche medical practice Menssana Mindbody Medicine (formerly known as Ballarat Mind-Body Medicine) received a further boost recently when we were awarded the top accreditation honour for the third time.
The days of the solo GP practice are not over yet! In late September 2013, our practice was highly commended in the AGPAL Solo General Practice of the Year Award. Even though the proportion of doctors working in solo practice halved between 2000 and 2007 and is steadily declining, working as a solo GP has its advantages.
The solo GP practice is alive and well. Small medical practices in Ballarat received a boost last month when solo-GP practice Ballarat Mind-Body Medicine received a top accreditation honour for the second time running, demonstrating the quality and safety of their practice.
Three years after opening its doors on 1 October 2005 at the Humffray Street North location, Ballarat Mind-Body Medicine is going strong. With its focus on biofeedback and nutritional medicine, it offers a complementary approach that fits into the emerging field of Integrative Medicine. 01-10-2008
Ballarat Mind-Body Medicine has received the top honour from Australia's most respected accreditation body, Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL). AGPAL Chair Dr Richard Choong said the accreditation award shows that the practice makes a significant investment in quality care.
