Dr. Merryn Thomae (with the Loma Vata Holistic Care team) currently provides Specialist Endocrinology & Internal / General Medicine Services to clinics across Brisbane, Dalby, St George, Goondiwindi, Charleville, Cunnamulla, Byron Bay & the Sunshine Coast.
To take her services to these towns, she drives her 2013 Toyota Prado and stays in local motel accomodation.
Dr. Thomae provides public and private clinics; face to face, Telehealth and weekend appointments. She offers comprehensive health assessments and strategies for living well. Her aim is to empower the individual and their primary health care team to improve overall quality of life and health outcomes. Merryn provides education and upskilling sessions in every clinic.
Merryn is passionate about taking mobile health care services to people in regional, remote and other areas of need. She is committed to serving the Veteran Community, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Communities, people living in rural Australia and all those requiring specialist care.
In order to access specialist care, many people living in remote areas have to travel long distances to urban centres. The associated costs for travel, accommodation, lost work hours and absence from family / other commitments are significant. This sometimes results in people delaying medical care or going without it. As a result, the people we provide services to in remote areas regularly express their thanks that we choose to bring specialist services directly to them, in their towns on a regular basis.
Dr. Thomae is planning to visit more remote area towns and is seeking an appropriate off-road vehicle that can also provide accommodation & clinic space when local clinic rooms are not available. Any contributions to this end would be very much appreciated e.g. sponsor-donated vehicle lease, donation of the off-road vehicle itself, donation of safety equipment for the vehicle such as spotlights or UHF radio.
All sponsors and donors will receive promotion across our social media platforms. Please see our Rewards section for more benefits!
Thank you for considering our cause.
