How We Can Help
75 + YEAR OLD HEALTH ASSESSMENTSThis is a general comprehensive review of health, medications and management of daily activities. Health assessments are bulk billed. It also includes an assessment of the patient’s social function, including the availability and adequacy of paid and unpaid help.
45– 49 YEAR OLD HEALTH ASSESSMENTS
The Department of Health and Ageing has introduced a new Medicare item to focus on the health needs of the patients 45 to 49 years of age who are at risk of developing a chronic disease (disease that has been for at least 6 months) including but not limited to asthma, cancer, cardiovascular illness, diabetes mellitus, mental health conditions, arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions. The risk factors would include smoking, physical inactivity, poor nutrition, alcohol misuse, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, impaired glucose tolerance, family history of a chronic disease, et cetera. You can decide together with your family doctor during your regular consultation whether you would need such a check.
Useful info and health tips
Appointments are essential. Usually 15-minute appointments are allocated. If you require a longer appointment, please inform the receptionist when making your booking. In the exception of an emergency, if we are not informed that you require a longer appointment it may be necessary to make another appointment to deal with all your problems.
We try to run on time but this is not always possible and we apologise for any delay. We also encourage patients to ring ahead of their appointment to check the doctor’s progress, we understand your time is important. We do keep a few appointments available for urgent problems each morning and afternoon.
Please advise the receptionist if more than one person in your family needs to be seen, as more than one appointment time is usually required.
Complete medical checkups, insurance, aviation medicals, driving, pre- employment medicals and surgical procedures will always require a longer appointment. Please advise what type of medical you need performed when booking.
Online bookings are available through Health Engine.
