Effective and Responsive Mental Health Care Services
Hunter Primary Care Psychology Services has Psychologists and Clinical Psychologists providing services at our clinics at our head office in Newcastle, and outreach offices located at Maitland, East Lake Macquarie (Jewells), West Lake Macquarie (Toronto), Cessnock, Kurri Kurri, Singleton and Port Stephens (Medowie). Our team are highly experienced and skilled at addressing common primary mental health care presentations.
Our clinicians have a focus on ongoing professional development to be able to provide best practice in delivering psychological services. Most of our staff are members of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and/or the Australian Clinical Psychology Association (ACPA). We have strong links with the University of Newcastle, and provide opportunities for Clinical Psychology trainees to attend clinical placements. Some of the Senior Clinical Psychologists lecture into the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Newcastle.
Hunter Primary Care currently sub-contract staff to provide psychological services in the rural areas, including Port Stephens (Nelson Bay), Muswellbrook, and Scone. Similarly, to employed clinical staff, the contractors have demonstrated skills and experience in delivering psychological services under the Mental Health Services.
