NewHope Medical is growing!

Published on November 4, 2020

We are delighted to share our good news with you. Dr Michael Eskander will be joining the medical team on Monday 2nd November. Michael will be with us for 6 months as a locum GP, working mornings and some Saturdays (another piece of news, the long awaited Saturday opening is finally possible!).

Originally from Egypt (and speaking Arabic and English) Michael re-qualified as a GP in Australia and has been working in Melbourne for a few years. With interests in general medicine and minor surgeries, Michael also offers care in the areas of men’s health and well being, paediatric care, immunisations, diabetes care and women’s health. Michael lives locally and has a young family.

In other news, we are in the final steps of appointing a new psychologist to our team, to join us early next year.

We are in an even stronger position to serve our community now – with male and female practitioners in each area – doctors, counsellors and psychologists. However, we are still searching for more doctors as the medical centre is dependent on this income stream to be self sufficient.

Please join us in giving thanks to our Father for his unceasing faithfulness and provision for us to continue His work. We have appreciated your prayers in support of the medical centre and our search for new doctors.
