Mission Statement

“To establish a commercially sustainable, corporate and public health initiative with the purpose of providing value-added medical, corporate and allied health services across private, public and commercial sectors in Australia and beyond; these services, in the first instance, to be for the individual and collective benefit of all Australians, regardless of background and persuasion, and without prejudice or bias”.

Core Principles

Health Watch Australia is underpinned by over 23 years of clinical and corporate experience. It is based on a spirit of collegiality, a family structured corporate culture and high level core values aimed at providing the best in individual and community health care. Added to this is the opportunity for medical practitioners, administrations staff and other healthcare associates to openly share expert knowledge, experience and personal ideals, to help one another reach their personal and collective potential; perhaps best surmised by one of our key corporate culture value statements – ‘caring for our patients and each other’.
