In addition to general medical consultations, Sunnybank Hills Medical Centre is proud to offer a wide array of extra healthcare services. These services include but are not limited to:
GP managed Care plans
Sunnybank Hills Medical Centre performs GP managed care plans. These are a tool for our doctors to comprehensively coordinate the health care of their patients with a chronic or terminal medical condition. If you suffer from a chronic medical condition you may be eligible for a GP management plan. Some examples of these conditions include diabetes, arthritis and chronic pain. Some care plan patients may then be eligible for subsidised treatments by certain allied health providers (physiotherapist, podiatrist, dietitian & exercise physiologists.) through a referral from their general practitioner.
Immunisations are a vital part in reducing a patient’s risk of developing certain diseases. Sunnybank Hills Medical Centre offers a comprehensive and caring approach with delivering vaccinations and aims to thoroughly address any concerns patients or parents may have. We are qualified to administer the Q-Fever vaccination and are able to coordinate each step of this process. Our highly trained doctors and nurses will make it a safe, informative and positive experience.
A vital part of general practice is ensuring that if a patient needs medication that they are on the appropriate medication, and that the patient is fully informed as to what the medication is and how to take it. Some patients may be eligible for bulk-billed home medication reviews. This involves collaboration between your GP and an accredited pharmacist in optimising your medication needs. This can help reduce medication-related problems and in doing so helps deliver the best health care to the patient.
Dressing and Wound Care
Wound care is a common encounter within the general practice setting. If done effectively it can minimise healing time and make a real difference to patient outcomes. Working with our highly trained nursing staff your doctor will provide a thorough service that delivers effective results.
Age specific Health Care Checks
Health assessments are a great way of optimising a patient’s overall health. If you are aged 75 or older you are entitled to a bulk billed annual health assessment. There are some other age groups who are also eligible. If you are between 40 and 49 you may be eligible. Ask one of our doctors today if you are eligible.
Lung Function Tests
Through a combination of medical assessment and use of our in-practice spirometry we can screen for and monitor certain lung conditions including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These conditions are best managed early on. If you have a smoking history, family history of asthma or are concerned about your lungs book in to see one of the experienced GPs at Sunnybank Hills Medical Centre.
If appropriate an ECG can be recorded on our patients. This is an excellent tool in assessing for structural and electrical abnormalities of the heart. It is a vital instrument in some emergency presentations. Our doctors are trained in the use of these.
