Our multidisciplinary hospital teams are staffed with highly skilled mental health specialists, nurses, and allied health professionals and continue to attract best-in-class mental health specialists wanting to join a team focused on sustainable outcomes and patient care.
We sat down with Dr Tanveer Ahmed, consultant psychiatrist at Aurora Healthcare’s The Hills Clinic to learn more about his experience working in private practice and the benefits of co-locating within a hospital setting.
“For me it’s been a fantastic place to have both a private practice as well as treat inpatients from a whole variety of conditions,” said Dr Ahmed.
“All the key elements to expand your private practice, or begin a new one, are at The Hills Clinic."
