The head of cohealth, a leading provider of community health and support services in Melbourne’s northern and western suburbs, Ms Lyn Morgain, said the service will offer GPs, nursing
services, occupational therapy, podiatry, family counselling, and diabetes education, while Vision Australia will run vision clinics and Dorevitch Pathology will run pathology services.

“The clinic will offer a range of health services that meet the specialised needs of families, children, vulnerable people and communities, including refugees and asylum seekers living in the
Laverton area”, Ms Morgain said.

“Core to our work in Laverton will be a focus on prevention and early intervention services, and chronic disease management.

“We understand there are a number of marginalised groups within this area, including culturally and linguistically diverse communities – all communities we have worked with for decades in
Melbourne’s fast growing western and northern suburbs.

“We are very excited to be at the Laverton Hub and to make health and support services more accessible for the local people.

Leading up to the opening of the new clinic on 29 June, cohealth will participate in The Laverton Community Hub Open Day on Saturday 20 June and welcome community members to visit the
clinic, meet staff and register with the clinic.
