Please be patient as we iron out any remaining issues.

  • Health assessment, over 75

    Our doctors recommend a health assessment for every over 75 year old once a year. This is an in-depth assessment, and provides a structured way of identifying health issues and conditions that are potentially preventable or amenable to interventions in order to improve health and/or quality of life.

  • Health assessment, 45-49 year old

    A health assessment is recommended for everyone aged 45-49 who has a specific risk factor for developing a chronic disease. These risk factors include smoking, overweight, high blood pressure or a family history of chronic disease.

  • Minor surgery

    Many of our doctors are skilled at minor surgery. Procedures such as excisions of moles or skin cancers, and resection of ingrown toenails are regularly performed. We can also treat warts, skin tags, lipomas, cysts and boils.

  • Wound management

    Our nursing team provides high quality care for all wounds that require dressings. Please make an appointment with our nursing staff should you require a dressing. You will need to purchase and supply the dressings and bandages, as there is no Medicare or PBS subsidy.

  • Pregnancy

    All of our doctors can help you plan and manage the early stages of pregnancy. We recommend discussing pregnancy with your doctor as far in advance as possible.

  • New patients

    We welcome new patients. Please make a double appointment if you are a new to the medical centre, or if you have not visited for some time.

  • Travel medicine

    It is important to seek the advice of your doctor at least 6 weeks before you travel overseas. We can help make you aware of any medical risks, optimise your own treatment, and administer vaccines or prescribe anti-malarials if necessary.

  • Long appointments

    Our standard appointment time is 12-15 minutes (as recommended by RACGP). If you think you need more time than this, please ask reception to book you a double appointment.

  • GP Management Plans

    The Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Medicare items enable GPs to plan and coordinate the health care of patients with chronic or terminal medical conditions, including patients with these conditions who require multidisciplinary care.
