Services

Victoria Harbour Medical Centre is an inclusive general practice and offers a range of medical and allied services. If you have any questions relating to our services please call us on (03) 9629 1414.

General Practice

We have both male and female GPs available for consultations. Some of the General Practice services we provide include:

Antenatal Shared Care

Dr Kirsten Scott and Dr Michelle Wellington are accredited Maternity Care Affiliates who work in collaboration with Mercy Hospital for Women,  Mercy Werribee, The Women’s Hospital ( Parkville ) and The Women’s Hospital ( Sandringham) for Antenatal Shared Care.

A Shared Care GP is a general practitioner with additional training in obstetrics, who is appointed by the hospital to provide complete pregnancy care to public patients who are not going through a private obstetrician.

You will be seen by the Shared Care GP every month for the first six months, fortnightly for the next two months and then every week for the last month. They will arrange all necessary blood tests, ultrasounds, hospital visits etc. during this time.

You will be referred to the relevant hospital, where you will have about four visits during the nine months. This will be where delivery will take place, usually by a midwife, plus care for the baby and mother whilst in hospital. This way, both the hospital and your Shared Care GP are kept fully informed of your progress i.e. they “share” the care of you.
