Announcement of new ownership and transfer of health records
Michael Slaven and Aaron Torline were appointed by the NHC Board of Directors as Joint and Several Administrators of NHC on 21 June 2021. As Administrators, their role has, and continues to be, operating NHC and working towards the best possible outcome for creditors, staff, patients and other stakeholders.
The timely decision by the Board of Directors to place NHC into voluntary administration has allowed the Administrators time to explore options to ensure continuity of services beyond the administration process.
Restructuring of NHC Services
The Administrators are pleased to announce that NHC has entered into contracts for NHC’s clinics at Chisholm, Coombs, Evatt, Higgins, Kippax and Macquarie to be restructured into six independently owned and operated GP clinics commencing from 2 October 2021.
The NHC is continuing to provide health care services at the ANU Kambri clinic with the view of transitioning operations to the ANU in the near future.
New Clinic Contact Details and Medical Records
Details of the new independently owned clinics are listed below.
All clinics with the exemption of the new Higgins clinic will receive a copy of your patient file. The new Higgins clinic will receive copies of patient files in respect of those individuals who have had an appointment with an NHC doctor, nurse or health service provider within the last two years, who are practising from the new Higgins clinic from 2 October 2021.
Should you wish to have a copy of your medical records transferred to another practice, you may do so by requesting your new medical practice to submit a record transfer request form with any one of the new clinics.
