Come meet the team at the Coloured Sands Clinic: Remedial Massage Therapist Tamara Kelly, Sonya Carey, Jess Turvey, Chiropractor Dr Lily Matthews, Dentist Dr William Edmeades and Podiatrist Rochelle Harling
Operating since November 2014, the Coloured Sands Clinic team has grown to include a podiatrist, a chiropractor and a remedial massage therapist. We spoke to Practice Manager and Health Coach, Paola Chadwick, about the expansion.
What does this mean for access to health for our community?
Having more health services under one roof is great for easier access, booking appointments and even getting more than one health service done on the same day.
The health practitioners also benefit from closer clinical cooperation, exchange of knowledge and invaluable help with reception, administration and sterilisation of equipment etc., so that they can concentrate more on their clinical work.
How has the response been from the community?
So far it’s been positive; on the whole patients find the location easy to get to, with plenty of parking and a pleasant waiting room environment with helpful staff.
Would you say the team has a holistic approach to health?
Absolutely! As from our first idea of what we wanted the Coloured Sands Clinic to be, it is becoming a health hub where we all feed from each other. We all share the same concepts and ideas and it has really been a great early start to the clinic.
What are your future plans?
We hope to keep on expanding! Clinicians are their own bosses but benefit from sharing some of the running and rental costs at a great location. We welcome health professionals who are looking for a space to share ideas, work and cooperation, with great patient and client care.
