Neurology needs your help!

We don't want you to travel to Melbourne for healthcare if you don't have to. That's why we're working hard to provide our specialists with great facilities and the latest equipment.


Our neurology service is seeking your help to purchase EEG equipment to measure electricial activity in the brain. It can be used to diagnose conditions such as seizures, tumours or head injuries. You may be surprised to learn there is no permanent EEG machine in Gippsland. Let's change that!
