You can talk to our general practitioners about any mental health conditions, and receive the help and guidance you need to find effective care and management strategies. We offer non medication management and medication management, regular counselling, referral to allied health providers and preparation and ongoing management of GP mental health care plans.

 

Chronic Disease and GP Management Plans

 

Comprehensive and individualised planned care can ensure that all aspects of chronic disease are managed in order to achieve optimal health. Chronic conditions including diabetes, hypertension, arthritis and chronic pain are amongst the most common conditions that can be supported with the help of a GP Management Plan. Some patients are eligible for referral to allied health providers at a subsidised cost. These appointments are fully subsidised by the Government and would be bulk billed.

 

Health Assessments for over 75's

 

A comprehensive annual health check is recommended for all people aged over 75 to identify any health issues and optimise quality of life. Areas assessed may include, but are not limited to, lifestyle, mobility, medication, nutrition, exercise, safety in the home, care arrangements and support networks. These appointments are fully subsidised by the Government and would be bulk billed.
