New Primary Care (GP) Services at Next Generation Occupational Medicine

We would like to take this opportunity to advise of a number of changes to the Next Generation Practice:

New Primary Care (GP) Services at Next Generation Occupational Medicine

In addition to our Rose Park Clinic, Next Generation is now providing 5-day coverage of early intervention and acute injury management services at our new premises at:

Northern Medical Centre
1/1568 Main North Road
Salisbury South SA 5106
Corner of Frost Road and Main North Road

Injured workers can now be treated without a GP referral.

Dr Thanh Ha previously worked as a physiotherapist for seven years, specialising in orthopaedics and neurophysiotherapy. Since then, she has participated in surgical training, completed her PhD in surgery and is now pursuing her interest in occupational medicine

Dr Yi Han Cheng was a qualified engineer and pilot before deciding to pursue his career in occupational medicine. Dr Cheng was previously enrolled in the Singaporean Army and Military Police. He is a Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME) and is qualified to perform CASA medicals.

Dr Cheng has a 90% return to pre-injury work rate within the first 3 months of injury, and Dr Ha has a similar return to work rate.

Since starting the service in February, Next Generation has had:

• no lost time for new injuries.
• an average time to return to normal duties of 18 days.
• 70% of workers have been cleared within 1 week.
• 85% of workers have been cleared within 2 weeks.

Both doctors join our Physiotherapists Peter Roberts, Diane Wilson and Tien Nguyen, as well as our new Psychologist Michelle Bakjac, as part of our Specialised Early Intervention Service (SEIS). They are also supported by 4 Occupational Physicians as well as our fast tracked Second Opinion Medicine Specialists.

New Occupational Physician

Dr Robin Chase, Occupational Physician, has joined Next Generation, providing IMEs, Second Opinion Medicine, PIAs and ISV assessments. Dr Chase needs no introduction; he has an Order of Australia in Occupational Medicine and was the previous Australian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine Faculty president.

New Psychologist

Michelle Bakjac has joined the Next Generation allied health team, replacing Maria Polymeneas who is now concentrating on pain management programs in the City. Michelle is well known in the industry and is held in high regard in clinical and organisation psychology, pain management and mental toughness.

Morphett Vale Rooms

Dr Kar Ng will be consulting at Southern Specialist Centre, 231/233 Main South Road, Morphett Vale, SA, 5162 on a sessional basis, providing specialist consults upon referral as requested.

If we can assist you in any way, please feel free to contact us.

Worksite Assessments and Job Dictionaries

Worksite Assessments and Job Dictionaries are tools that can be used in return-to-work planning, employee induction and job matching. Our physiotherapists and occupational therapists can attend a worksite and assess the demands of any job, to provide analysis of the stresses and risks involved.

Working with movement analysis software, Smart Health also specialises in designing Video Job Dictionaries. The next generation of employees learns more quickly and more accurately from video footage than from written documents. Return-to-work planning is significantly easier when task analysis can be viewed in video format. We can provide you with annotated, analysed video footage of any work task, streamlining job dictionaries into the coming decades.
