Workcover & TAC services
Workcover & TAC
GPs play a vital role in managing a patient’s healthcare following a traffic accident. At Family Health Clinics Malvern, our GPs are available to support and promote physical and mental recovery and rehabilitation. There are guidelines that GPs follow per TAC to assess and track the outcomes and progress of an individual’s journey post-accident. It is valuable for the patient to have a competent GP to manage the process of TAC documentation, including compensation, return to work scenarios and ongoing prescribed medications. Feel free to Book a Consultation if you have been involved in a traffic accident.

Frequently asked questions...
Every Workcover claim is unique, as there are a myriad of illnesses and injury types that can occur in the workplace. We recommend bringing evidence of your work contract, any reference or case number given by Workcover (if you have already spoken to them), any hospital reports (if applicable), emergency reports (if applicable) and other relevant information to the medical problem you are experiencing.
If you would like to visit our clinic for medical support for a Workcover claim, simply contact our rooms and advise our friendly receptionist. An initial Workcover appointment at the GP may be an extended consultation to ensure that all relevant paperwork can be read and recorded.
It is a GP’s role to make sure that patients who have been injured or become ill from their work environment, receive adequate medical treatment to help them recover and rehabilitate. The ultimate goal, if the situation allows, is to encourage the patient to get back to work. There are health assessment documents that a GP will need to complete to assist patients with their Workcover case.
In short, there is a mandatory obligation for employers to pay Workcover contributions annually. This money is used to fund Workcover claims.
Workcover insurance exists to pay out the costs associated with an illness or injury sustained by a person in their workplace. In general, all medical costs including allied health treatments as well as compensation for lost wages will be covered by Workcover.
