Chronic illness care
Chronic illnesses such as Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol and Asthma require ongoing care with regular check-ups, care plans and team care arrangements with allied health care practitioners (Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Chiropractors etc). We provide a recall service to patients with chronic illnesses so that they can be monitored on a regular basis.
We also provide Palliative care to terminally ill patients with home visits available where necessary
Bulk Billed health assessments are available to patients who are between 45-50 and also yearly to those patients over 75.
We also provide a free ECG to anyone over 45 who has not had one with us previously.
These checks are important for picking up early on health conditions that you may not be aware of.
We have male doctors available who have many years’ experience in health problems that occur specifically in males.
They attend education sessions on a regular basis and are up to date on the most recent treatments for these problems.

Recalls and Reminders
We use a computerised recall system. At times we may contact you by mail or telephone reminding you of due service or because your Doctor wishes to see you regarding test results. Patients have the option to opt out from receiving reminder lettters.
The doctors at the practice are competent at handling all the common health problems. When it is necessary, they are able to draw an opinion from specialists, and if need be, refer you for further investigation. You can discuss this openly with your doctor at consultation.
Patient results usually need an appointment unless the doctor has authorised the nursing staff to provide them over the phone.
Doctors prefer patients to come back in for a review of the results. All private patients are bulk-billed for this service.
