Peel Health Care is one of a small number of general practices in Australia that operate under an Easy Entry Gracious Exit model. This means the management and everyday running of the practice are taken care of by a management team – allowing doctors the time to focus on their patients, career development, teaching, and lifestyle. 

Doctors at Peel Health Care choose their own hours, days of work and the number of patients they wish to see, allowing for greater flexibility and work/life balance.

Peel Health Care is managed by Peel Health Care Ltd.
