About Us

HMS Community is Australia's first Community Paramedic-led Healthcare Charity, saving lives and money by preventing unnecessary hospital stays based in Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs and Macedon Ranges.

Each week, HMS Community saves ambulance services approximately 90 hours' worth of callouts, which is equal to around $1.4 million a week. This is because HMS Community provides accessible, thorough healthcare and support to people within the comfort of their homes and communities, or in our accessible clinic.

HMS Community is committed to providing community-based care that is responsive, innovative, and person-centered.

HMS Community offers health checks that test blood pressure, blood sugar, and ear wax build-up. These health checks are performed by medical professionals in the community at events. Preventative health early intervention is important for preventing diseases from progressing and causing serious health problems such as hearing loss, heart disease. By identifying people with high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and ear wax build-up early on, HMS Community can help to prevent these conditions from causing serious health problems in the future.
