Influenza, pneumonia and shingles vaccinations
We run a Recall and Reminder system for both routine and significant health issues. Reminders are sent out for annual checkups, including 75+ Annual Health Assessments (Bulk Billed), Care Plans (Bulk Billed) and pap smears. Patients are recalled as requested by their doctor, on receipt of the results of blood tests, x-rays, ultrasounds, etc.
Some positive aspects of our Recall and Reminder system include continuity of care, an increase in patient involvement in their health, better management of chronic conditions, leading to reduced acute care and increased preventive care, and better quality of life for patients.
We attempt to contact the patient, either by telephone or letter and our reception staff will endeavour to update your contact details each time you visit.
Other services include:
Spirometry (lung function test)
Wound care and dressings
Cryotherapy / Skin lesion removal
Instant drug testing
Driver’s Licence (both private and commercial), Aviation, Employment and Fire Medicals
