Mens health

We offer comprehensive preventative men's health checks. Men often don't like to come to the doctors much and by the time we see them their physical health is not the best! We want to change that (hence the change in our practice name!). Ask our receptionist to book you in for a 'Men's health check'.

Antenatal shared care

We have a very close relationship with local obstetricians, both private and public and all our doctors are recognised as being able to share antenatal care with them through the pregnancy. Our care ideally starts with a visit before you plan to get pregnant and we are there for you and your baby right up to the 6 week checks for mum and baby… and beyond!

Travel and vaccination clinic

When you know you are travelling overseas, please come in with your itinerary to see the nurse. From there we can work out which immunisations and other care you may need. Don't leave it to the last minute though as most immunisations need some weeks before they provide full protection.

Normally we will issue you with a script and you will need to return on a different day for immunisation.

We also provide yellow fever vaccinations.

Influenza vaccination clinics

Immunisations against influenza is available from March/April. We provide both private and government funded influenza vaccinations. The vaccination is provided free to those with certain chronic health conditions, aboriginal and torres strait islanders, those in their 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy and those over 65 years of age. We do provide private vaccination to those that don't fall into these categories. Please book an appointment with the nurse to have your vaccination.

Skin checks

We conduct skin cancer checks and treatment.
We recommend a full body skin check every 1–2 years or more frequently for those at high risk.
Self checks are important too – please make an appointment for a skin check if you notice any changes.

Minor ops

After consultation with your GP, for simple excisions, repair of lacerations, removal of foreign bodies, partial ingrown toe nail wedge resection etc…

Diagnostic tests

Blood taking, ECG, warfarin management, spirometry.

Care plans and health assessments

To help you access allied health care, we are able to complete care plans. These fall into two categories:

For each session you can claim $52.95

To be eligible you need to have at least 3 health care providers involved in your medical care.


Adult health checks

Male health checks, 45-49 year old health checks and over 75 year old health checks

45 -49 year old health check – the federal government has introduced a preventative health check for everyone aged between 45 – 49 who may be at risk of developing health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease. The health check will involve seeing our nurse initially who will conduct a thorough assessment including updating your medical history, checking your blood pressure, organising blood tests for cholesterol and diabetes, give lifestyle advice and provide lifescripts (maybe have a link here to the lifescript web site). You will be review by the doctor after this assessment. There is no cost for this health check as it is covered by medicare.

More information



Appointments – Our practice uses an appointment system. Each appointment is usually allocated 15 minutes so please let staff know if you require a longer appointment or have multiple medical issues to discuss. The medicare rebate you receive on longer appointments is higher so you are better off in the long run!

Reminder system – We have a SMS reminder system to remind you of your appointment day and time. You will receive the reminder the day prior to your appointment. Please ensure your mobile phone number details are up to date on our records.

Results – Patients are able to call for their results unless your doctor has made other arrangements with you.

Repeat prescriptions – For patient safety reasons we usually don’t prescribe scripts without a consultation. If you suddenly realise you are out of scripts and there are no standard appointments available we offer ‘script only’ appointments in which you will be fitted in with one of our doctors on the day. This consultation will be bulk billed but please note this is for a script only and not for the management of other medical complaints.

Referrals – Referrals to specialists and other health professionals requires a consultation with your doctor.

Fees – Our practice is a privately billing medical practice. DVA patients and children under the age of 16 are bulk billed. If you have registered with medicare online you will receive your medicare rebate into your bank account within 24 hrs of your payment.

GP registrars – Our practice is lucky enough to receive GP trainees undertaking their specialist training to become GP’s. These doctors are fully qualified and have completed their hospital training. It is a requirement for the registrars to complete time in a supervised and accredited practice prior to achieving their fellowship.

Medical Students – We are also excited about helping train the doctors of the future! We regularly have medical students from the University of Newcastle sit in with our doctors during their General Practice terms. The reception staff will have a consent form for you to sign if you are happy to have a medical student present during your consultation. Please let staff know if you would not like a student present.

Privacy – All consultations with your doctor are held in strictest confidence and your medical record is a confidential document. It is the policy of our practice to maintain security of personal health information at all times and to ensure that this information is only available to authorised members of staff.
