Pa­tient con­ve­nience un­der­pins mis­sion

Southern Telegraph - - Health & Beauty -

Since open­ing in 2015, Shoal­wa­ter Med­i­cal Cen­tre has been com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing friendly and pro­fes­sional ser­vice to the wider com­mu­nity.

The bulk-billing prac­tice of­fers nor­mal busi­ness hours as well as an after-hours GP ser­vices, with a fo­cus on pa­tient con­ve­nience.

The cen­tre’s range of clin­i­cal tech­nol­ogy and ex­per­tise in­cludes ex­pe­ri­enced gen­eral prac­ti­tion­ers, on-site po­di­a­try, pathol­ogy, phys­io­ther­apy, chi­ro­prac­tic, di­eti­tians, ex­er­cise phys­i­ol­ogy and hear­ing tests.

Pre­ven­ta­tive medicines of­fered by Shoal­wa­ter Med­i­cal Cen­tre in­clude skin checks, women’s health, chronic dis­ease man­age­ment and com­pre­hen­sive health treat­ment for over-75s as well as vac­ci­na­tions for chil­dren and adults.

Prac­tice man­ager Re­becca Hughes said the team felt the com­mu­nity had em­braced the cen­tre and all it had to of­fer.

“There aren’t many places in the area that bulk bill es­pe­cially after hours and it saves a visit to the emer­gency room, or a long wait at after-hours-only cen­tres,” she said.
