Your Donations make a difference

The important research we undertake to keep our local community healthy and safe is supported by a fundraising organisation called the Better Healthcare Foundation.

A donation to The Better Healthcare Foundation is a donation that directly supports your community. Every dollar brings us closer to changing the lives of our Central Highlands locals. Find out more about our latest projects.

Medical training is a core aspect of the Emerald Medical Group with an increasing number of registrars receiving their training at the practice each year. A significant recent donation allowed the
Emerald Medical Group to purchase state-of-the-art simulation equipment to help train local health professionals in handling emergency situations. This equipment enables health professionals in the Central Highlands to hone their emergency response skills by practicing and receiving immediate feedback on their performance in a range of emergency scenarios. Dr Ewen McPhee of our practice described the donated equipment as vital given the need for up-to-date emergency care training and the number of doctors we train here at the Emerald Medical Group.

Another way you can assist the Better Healthcare Foundation is by donating or volunteering to help via our community volunteer program. This program supports people with a palliative care diagnosis (and their carers) in a community setting.
