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.
Coronavirus Health Alert
As the threat level of COVID-19 is currently low in South Australia, we’re now offering face-to-face appointments. We continue to monitor the situation in other States closely.
We also observe social distancing >1.5m and limit the number of patients in our waiting room.
If you have symptoms of fever, flu, a cold, or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary. If you require help to arrange this, please book a telephone consult with a GP first, and an appropriate safe review can be arranged.
For patients with other conditions who would prefer a telephone or video consult, these appointments continue to be available.
Please be aware that a private or gap fee may be incurred for telephone or video consults from 1st October 2020.
Medicare GP telehealth items are restricted to circumstances where a patient has an existing relationship with a general practice (i.e. the patient has visited a GP in the practice face-to-face in the last 12 months), other than for children aged under 12 months or patients who are homeless.
Please be assured that our clinic is COVID-19 safe, and we remain prepared to transition back to telephone triage of all consults should COVID-19 threat levels increase.
