As a busy neurologist Dr Patrick Aouad witnessed so many people who presented for care with preventable conditions. Almost all of them wished that they had dealt with their symptoms earlier, but couldn’t find the time and just allowed things to build up until their mental and physical health had reached a crisis point. Meanwhile whilst Danny Mann was working within the corporate sector with diverse and hard working teams, it became clear that both he and his colleagues struggled to meet their most basic healthcare needs. It was so difficult to find care during business hours or make it to appointments. Both Pat and Danny knew there were so many excellent healthcare services in Australia – but it was just too difficult to access with busy lives, competing priorities and family commitments.
Together, they set up their first clinic to cater for the local community by understanding which healthcare professionals were required to best serve their needs and invest in being open during hours that provided access after work. But that wasn’t enough. They asked themselves, how could we make our services more convenient and accessible to more people?
