Administration

The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre has a large and loyal administration team here to help you.

Our Practice Manager Julie Tatnell has been with the Practice for over 25 years, initially working as a Sports and Clinical Dietitian at the practice before moving into the management role ten years ago.  Julie utilises her extensive experience as a practitioner to help ensure the delivery of an optimal health service to you.

Julie is ably assisted by Assistant Practice Managers Christina Kourkoutsis and Faye Stokes.  Christina has also been with The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre for over 20 years and is well known to many of our loyal patients.  Christina initially worked on reception and knows everything there is to know about The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre.  Faye is a highly experienced Practice Manager who joined us 8 years ago as our Financial Manager.

Kellie Bradley is also well known to many of our loyal patients.  8 years ago Kellie left a legal practice to join the reception team at The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre.  She is now our most experienced reception staff member, heavily involved in the training of new staff and passionate about helping patients achieve good quality health care.

More recently we have been joined by a fabulous group of experienced medical administrators who make up the rest of our reception team.  Kathryn Lowe, Fiona Dick, Kristen Duffy, Daina Elzinga and Sarah Turnbull have come from a range of medical and allied health practices to join our dynamic team.

We are also brilliantly assisted by our casual staff members who work with us between their University commitments: Emily Kalaitzidis, Kim Godfrey and Hannah Middleton.

All of our staff undergo a detailed induction program when they join The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre administration team. 

To ensure they can then best serve our patients and our practitioners, their education is ongoing and includes:

  • Customer Service
  • Triage and Emergency Management
  • CPR
  • Infection Prevention and Control
  • Vaccine Management
  • Privacy Legislation and Confidentiality
  • Computer and Information Security
  • Non-medical Emergency Training

Our entire team looks forward to being of assistance to you when you attend The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre.
