Message from the MTHC CEO

Welcome to all our patients at Shepparton Medical Centre (SMC) to 2021 and to what is hopefully a better year after the shock and acclimatization to the COVID-19 environment from 2020.

We are very proud of the response of our SMC team and the positive response and compliance from our patients as we adapted to a changing environment during 2020 with fire, floods and COVID-19.

We want to thank and acknowledgement our patients on enabling and supporting an excellent training environment for students on placement, despite the pandemic and embracing technology and telehealth as a new model of delivering care.

We also want to welcome our new doctors who are joining the Shepparton Medical Centre in February, Dr Senan Al-Saffar and Dr Asanga Abeykoon.

We wish you all the very best in the coming year and we look forward to continuing our health service provision to the Shepparton community during 2021.

Tony McLaughlan
CEO, Melbourne Teaching Health Clinics
