Bellarine Community Health Ltd

BCH Healthbus

Why

The Bellarine Peninsula has a number of communities that have no permanent community health facilities such as Curlewis, St. Leonards and Indented Heads.

The area also has a population with a high percentage of retiree’s aged 60 years and older and many people have limited access to cars and buses, so do not travel far if at all outside their community.

What

The project is to convert a second hand motorhome into a mobile consulting room that will be driven to wherever it is needed, taking healthcare to the client.

The vehicle will contain:

  • A consulting room with treatment chair in place of bed/shower/toilet facilities.
  • Storage for any equipment that is needed by the clinician.
  • Tea/coffee facilities and, microwave and refrigerator
  • Seating area for face to face consultations & interviews.
  • TV screen for showing informational presentations, videos and DVD.
  • Skype/video conference links through mobile technology to doctors and specialists (without the need for them leaving their offices).
  • Back-up electricity generator in case it is at an unpowered site.
