Procedures and wound care
Doctors at the clinic are all trained and experienced in performing minor surgical procedures including: Excision of skin lesions such as skin cancers, cysts and moles, insertion and removal of hormone and contraceptive implants, and repair of skin lacerations. Costs are associated with surgical procedures.
Our nurses are highly trained in the care of wounds.
We offer medical examinations for insurance, pre-employment, sporting activities including diving, licences etc. As these involve additional paperwork, please notify reception staff as extra time MUST be allocated for the doctor to attend to these medical examinations. Medical examinations are generally not covered by Medicare and the full account will be your responsibility.
Please also see our Occupational Medicine page for specialised medical examinations we can supply.
CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT PLANNING
Chronic Disease Management plans support patients to receive additional assistance form their GP and potentially allied health services to assist with improving the condition or enabling the patient to manage their condition more effectively.
A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer. Patients must be deemed eligible by their GP to be able to access this service. A booking of 30 minutes with our Chronic Disease Co-Ordinator will assist with the development of the plan and then will be reviewed and finalised by the GP. This service is currently bulk billed.
