Aged Health Assessments

Aged Health Assessments are a Medicare initiative for over 75 year olds to help keep the aged population in their homes and thus reduce Government spending on nursing homes and hospitals.

Our aged care nurses will spend an hour assessing your physical and social needs to determine if there are any changes to your home and/or lifestyle to help you lead a more independent life in your later years.

Your doctor will also be involved in reviewing the nurse’s initial assessment.  We have found these visits to be extremely useful. Aged Care Health Assessments are bulk billed and done annually.

Annual Health Checks

Even if you feel well, it is a good idea to have a general health check annually with your Doctor.  Routine tests can often find underlying medical conditions which are easier to treat if found early.  This is particularly important if you have a family history of a chronic disease such as diabetes, heart failure, kidney failure etc or a family history of cancer.

It is also a good idea to have regular skin checks.  We live in an area with a very high skin cancer rate.  All of our doctors have the ability to diagnose and treat skin cancers and we have a very well equipped minor operating surgery for excisions and biopsies.

Minor Surgery

We have a very well equipped minor ops theatre. If you are booking to have minor surgery, your doctor will need to see you on an initial consultation to assess what treatment is needed. If surgery is indicated, you will need to be sure the staff are aware that you are booking for an operation so that the theatre may be booked at the same time for your doctor to operate.
