H.A.L.T. – Hope Assistance Local Tradies

We are very excited to announce that Eleanor Clinic has partnered with H.A.L.T (Hope Assistance Local Tradies).

The first of its kind, the HALT-Friendly Clinics program directly links HALT event attendees with GP and psychologist clinics in their local area that have a specific interest, knowledge and skills in men’s mental health and suicide prevention. As we have been running a very well received Men’s Health Clinic, this is an issue very close to our heart.

Welcome, Dr Claire!

We are excited to welcome Dr. Claire Hindmarsh to our team of specialist GPs.

With over 20 years as a doctor she brings a wealth of experience and a big passion for high quality personalised care with her. Having worked in the CBD over the last few years, Dr. Claire is excited to work in her community again, being an Inner Westie herself.

As you may know we can only see a limited amount of new patients at Eleanor Clinic to ensure our existing patients keep reliable access to follow up appointments. It is of tremendous help to our patients that Dr Claire is currently able to see new patients.

Goodbye, Dr. Olivia!

Today we are saying goodbye to Dr. Olivia Rimington, who is off to new adventures.
Olivia will be sadly missed by staff and doctors alike, and I am sure many of her patients will miss her too. Olivia is leaving to pursue further training in mental health. We are very excited for this fantastic opportunity for her and wish her all the best for this new chapter in her career.
Olivia was part of our Eleanor Clinic team from the very beginning. While gathering substantial experience in nutritional medicine in London she became aware of our plans to make Eleanor Clinic a reality. Having worked together in the past Olivia excitedly joined our team before the clinic even opened.
Olivia’s positive ability to motivate almost anyone to improve their health, even when it seems hard and not straight forward, is just fantastic. Her humour, dedication, glamour and immense knowledge will be sorely missed by us all. We wish her all the best and a fabulous new start at her next feat and challenge.
