General consultationsGeneral practice is a clinical specialty focused on primary care. It means providing medical care focusing on the person, the family as well as the community. This includes diagnosis, treatment and prevention, but more importantly providing continuity of care over time.
Chronic disease management
As life expectancy continues to improve over the decades, there are more and more people living with chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma and COPD just to name a few. GPs are specialists in chronic disease management and our specialists nurses also provides free specialised clinics specifically catering for these chronic diseases.
Prevention is better than cure, and is an important aspect of what we do. We provide a wide range of preventative medicine from childhood immunisations & vaccinations, chronic disease screening such as diabetes and heart checks, to cancer screening such as cervical, bowel and prostate.
Specialist referrals & continuity of care from hospital
Certain medical conditions can require specialist input and when clinically indicated, we can help you through the process of seeing a specialist, through the public system or private healthcare. When discharged from the hospital, we liaise with the hospital team or your specialist to provide follow up as required.
Aged care medicine
With an aging population, people are living longer and with that comes increasing complexity in health care due to more chronic diseases, multiple concurrent medications, and deterioration in body’s physiology. We are vigilant and give special considerations to the above factors.
Palliative care service
We work closely with North Shore Hospice to provide end of life care that focuses on quality of life and the patient’s goals and wishes.
