Welcome to Western Sydney's Integrative Medical Clinic of the Future

Our mission

At Next Practice our mission, put simply, is to provide the best healthcare experience on the planet Earth!

About us

At Next Practice care of Western Sydney Integrative Health (WSIH), we operate our practice at the highest possible standards of excellence in a world-class facility – Western Sydney University‘s NICM Health Research Institute, located on the Westmead campus. We are passionate about the value of combining mainstream “Western” medicine with evidence-based complementary treatments, to provide you the best of both worlds and support you to reach your health and wellbeing goals.

One in three Australians live with a chronic disease. Evidence based integrative therapies like yoga, mindfulness, herbal medicine, nutritional supplements and acupuncture can help improve quality of life and health outcomes in chronic illness when integrated with conventional healthcare. Our Care Team works closely with your existing/regular health professionals to help you reach your health and wellbeing goals.

Cancer care services

Our Care team at Next Practice WSIH have expertise in supportive cancer care and provide a range of services to support you throughout your journey in order to complement your medical treatment. Our whole person approach is based on the latest scientific evidence.

Patients with cancer are eligible for a limited number of free treatments through the Dry July Foundation. This foundation provides funding to cover a total of 4 appointments of supportive cancer care per patient, all year round. This includes Acupuncture, Private Yoga Therapy and Oncology Massage Therapy. We also provide Group Yoga Classes at an unlimited amount. Learn more on our Cancer support services page.

Giving back with NextAid

We are a humanitarian organisation at our core and we believe no person should die from a preventable disease.


What is NextAid

At Next Practice, we want to provide a bridge to those that are less fortunate than us in any way we can. That's why for every consultation at a Next Practice medical centre, we donate a vaccination to someone in need in the developing world. We call it our NextAid initiative.

How it works

Proceeds from each patient consultation within the Next Practice network is donated through UNICEF Australia to sponsor a vaccination against Maternal Tetanus. At the moment, our goal is to focus solely on Maternal Tetanus (MNT) vaccinations to eliminate the disease in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

Why Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus Elimination (MNTE)?

Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus (MNT) represents a very high proportion of the total Tetanus disease. MNT is a swift and painful killer disease and extremely fatal in newborns- killing 30,848 newborns in 2017 alone.

MNT has been among the most common life-threatening consequences of unclean deliveries and umbilical cord care practices and are indicators of inequity in access to immunization and other maternal, newborn, and child health services.

Once the disease is contracted, the fatality rate can be as high as 100% without hospital care and between 10% to 60% with hospital care. The true extent of the Tetanus death toll is not known as many newborns and mothers die at home and neither the birth nor the death is reported.

This happens despite the fact that MNT deaths can be easily prevented by hygienic delivery and cord care practices, and/or by immunizing children and women with Tetanus Toxoid Containing Vaccines (TTCV), that are inexpensive and very effective, through the life course.

While progress continues to be made, 13 countries have still not reached the MNTE status, including Papa New Guinea. Activities to achieve the goal are on-going in these countries and the World Health Organisation is hopeful that many are likely to achieve MNTE in the near future.

Look out for further information on donations on our News and Articles page or in the clinic.
