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.
All patients with a chronic disease are eligible for a bulk billed GP Management Plan and often a Team Care Arrangement which enables access to up to 5 Medicare subsidised allied health consultations.
Patients over 75 are also eligible for a bulk billed annual health assessment.
