Our wonderful team of caring GPs and Practice Nurses manage patients with chronic diseases such as asthma, coronary heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes and chronic kidney disease.
Many illnesses and health conditions can be classified under the broad heading of chronic disease. Chronic diseases are mostly characterized by:
We work with our patients on prevention of chronic diseases and provide regular checks on cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure and help patients improve these. GPs use the Diabetic risk assessment tool and Australian Cardiovascular Risk Predictor to target those at moderate to high risk and also factor in family history and smoking status.
Our team has an excellent referral network of specialists and Allied Health professionals to help with chronic disease management.
Extra Medicare benefits are now available to eligible patients who have registered with the Australian Government’s MyMedicare. To register or learn more about how MyMedicare can benefit you, click here.
When registering online, if you cannot find our clinic in the list of medical centres that are registered with MyMedicare, please check back later in the month, as we may still be going through the set-up process in the system.
We are currently not able to accept new patients due to being at capacity. We hope to re-open new patient bookings in the very near future.
Please check back soon, or call us on 7485 4000 if you have any queries.
As of 17th July 2023, our fees have increased slightly. There will be a small gap payment on all consults for those who are over the age of 16 and do not have a concession.
Bulk billing will also no longer be available on weekends.
WHY IS THERE A GAP?
The Medicare rebate does not fully cover the cost of providing good quality care. The rebate has been kept at the same level for many years whilst costs have increased much more. Therefore, from 1 January 2023, you will need to pay a gap fee for your consult. Please click here for more information.
