Partnering for Success
The Vanguard Way
Vanguard as a business is committed to engaging with Australian doctors to support them to extend their services efficiently to public patients in regional, rural and remote locations as well as Indigenous communities.
In partnership with clinicians and public health services we have now coordinated specialist health programs for both State and Federal government and in locations across Queensland, Western Australian, New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Since 2009 Vanguard coordinated public medical services that have seen thousands of Australian public patients have their health needs met.
The Vanguard way is to look for positive engagement models that see clinicians, public health services and importantly patients all benefiting from collaborative and innovative service models.
