Managing chronic conditions requires a good understanding of your own health conditions. In particular, what can be expected to happen, what you need to do to optimise your health and what you can do when you get sick.
We encourage our patients to undergo chronic disease management planning where appropriate and can work with you to get the most out of your body and mind.
We offer bulk-billed standard Annual Health Assessments for over-75’s, usually done together with your driver’s license medical check. Please let reception know when booking your appointment and we will book you in with our nurse and your doctor.
If you are living with a “chronic disease” you may be eligible for 3-4 bulk billed checkups every year and possibly for funded visits to appropriate allied health such as optometrist, podiatrist, dietitian, physiotherapist if needed (gap payments may apply).
Eligible chronic diseases include:
– Heart disease and stroke
– Lung disease including severe asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis
Please speak with your doctor to see if you are eligible.
