“I’ll be right” – Let us make sure!

Despite statistical evidence that clearly shows men have a higher mortality rate than women, men still show a greater reluctance to seek medical advice. Men have a tendency to deny feeling unwell or shrug it off with that well-worn phrase ‘I’ll be alright’. The fact is that it may often not be alright. Like women, men too have specific health needs that require care and attention.

Men’s Health Clinic makes it easier for men to talk about, and understand their own health needs. Our doctors can help guide you towards a healthier lifestyle and teach you how to avoid health problems that typically affect men, such as High blood pressure, Heart conditions, Weight management, Prostate concerns, Urinary problems, Sexual dysfunction etc

We provide a relaxed and comfortable environment for the health needs for women of all ages. Our team of experienced female G.P’s can help with all aspects of care from adolescence,through to menopause and beyond.

We provide a wide range of women’s health services, including:

  • Pap Smears

75 years plus – Health check

Patients over 75yrs of age are eligible for a free annual health assessment. This is part of the Federal Government’s initiatives to improve the health care available to older Australians.

A health assessment of an older person is an in-depth assessment of a patient aged 75 years and over. It provides a structured way of identifying health issues and conditions that are potentially preventable or amenable to interventions in order to improve health and/or quality of life.

The purpose of this health assessment is to help identify any risk factors exhibited by an elderly patient that may require further health management. In addition to assessing a person’s health status, a health assessment is used to identify a broad range of factors that influence a person’s physical, psychological and social functioning.
