Friendly after-hours ser­vice

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 after-hour 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, chi­ro­prac­tor, 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. “We re­ally feel like the com­mu­nity has em­braced our cen­tre and all it has to of­fer,” prac­tice man­ager Re­becca Hughes said.

“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.”

The pri­vately owned and run prac­tice strives to de­liver high-qual­ity ser­vice each time, with ded­i­cated hard work­ing gen­eral prac­ti­tion­ers and clin­i­cal staff.

To make an ap­point­ment, visit shoal­wa­ter­med­i­cal­cen­ or phone 9527 2236. Shoal­wa­ter Med­i­cal Cen­tre is at 40 Coven­try Road, Shoal­wa­ter, and is open from 8am-7.30pm, from Mon­day to Fri­day, and 8.30am-4pm on Satur­day.
