Our doctors are experienced in managing the complex needs of older Australians. Comprehensive health checks help identify any health issues and optimise quality of life.

Areas assessed may include but are not limited to lifestyle, mobility, medication, nutrition, exercise, safety in the home, care arrangements and support networks.

Children’s health checks include monitoring development and normal milestones, immunisation and health promotion. A through health check can assess readiness for school and provide an opportunity for early screening for visual acuity, hearing, coordination as well as motor skills and other areas of development.

The Childhood Immunisations are an important part of keeping kids well and protecting against a range of preventable diseases and infections. All immunisations are administered by experienced GPs, who can also provide catchup schedules for children newly arriving in Australia or have missed immunisations.

Women’s healthcare may include but is not limited to regular PAP screening, breast checks, referral for mammography, family planning options, contraception, fertility counselling and management of menopause. Lifestyle plays an important role in all women’s lives, with healthcare focused on prevention to maintain optimum health.

Women are more susceptible to certain illnesses or conditions at different stages of their life and require checks accordingly. For example, you’re more likely to experience depression in your 20s, weight problems in your 30s and 40s, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease in your 50s.

Our female doctors are highly trained and experienced in providing comprehensive and empathic management of all your health concerns.

Our doctors offer comprehensive fertility and Antenatal health services utilising the latest technology to provide quality care. Our GPs are accredited with local hospitals in delivering Shared Antenatal care.

Our doctors understand that men have unique needs in terms of health and the way health services are accessed. Conditions that are more likely to affect men include Sleep apnoea, Heart disease, high blood pressure, Haemochromatosis and Kidney stones.

The most common cancers in men in Australia are Skin Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Bowel Cancer, Lung Cancer. Thus our men’s health consultations focus on screening for and managing these conditions.

Specialised aspects of a men’s health consultation may also include Testosterone Replacement Therapy, Erectile dysfunction, STD screening and management of conditions that affect the male genital organ (example testicular swellings, infection).

While our doctors are experienced in all aspects of men’s health, they also understand that lifestyle plays an important role in all men’s lives and thus provide healthcare focused on prevention to maintain optimum health.

How often and when you need to have a check-up depends on your lifestyle and sexual activity. If you haven’t had a sexual health check in the last year or have any concerns for your sexual health, book an appointment with our GP for a private and confidential consultation.

Our health philosophy centres on preventative medicine. Our GPs conduct a thorough history and examination and order relevant tests and prepare a prevention plan tailored to your individual needs.

Annual check-ups after 40 years of age are recommended to assist in the early detection and prevention of common medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart and vascular disease, diabetes and cancers.

Other check-ups may include breast checks and pap smears for women and rectal prostate examination for men. The skin is also checked in addition to internal organ systems.

A holistic approach to healthcare is important including physical, social, spiritual and mental health. Mental healthcare may include but is not limited to medication management, regular counselling, referral to allied health providers as well as preparation and ongoing management of GP mental healthcare plans.

Comprehensive and individualised care plan can ensure that all aspects of chronic disease are managed including goals to achieve optimal health. Chronic conditions including diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, arthritis, chronic pain are amongst the most common conditions that can be supported with the help of a care plan.

Some care plan patients are eligible for referral to allied health providers at a subsidised cost.

What is Skin Cancer?

Skin cancer develops when a skin cell goes through a series of changes that make it a cancer cell. Exposure to UV radiation from the sun and other sources (such as solariums) is the main factor that causes skin cells to become cancer cells.

Most skin cancers can be successfully treated, if detected early.

Skin cancers don’t all look the same, but there are some signs to look out for:

  • a spot that is different from other spots on the skin
  • a spot, mole or freckle that has changed in size, shape or colour
  • a sore that doesn’t heal
  • a spot that bleeds or itches

Why have a skin check?

Skin cancer is usually diagnosed by a Specialist who examines the skin, often using a hand held microscope (dermatoscope). Skin cancer specialists are more likely to detect melanomas and other skin cancers at a thinner stage than either the patient or the patient’s partner.

Over 60% of melanomas detected are not presented as a concern by the patient. Early detection has been proven to save lives and minimise surgery.

Why choose us?

Our skin service is unique because we offer you rapid access to skilled doctors and specialist equipment for skin surveillance and an on-site operating theatre for timely and cost-effective surgery.

Most importantly all cancer surgery is performed by a Specialist Surgeon to ensure the best cosmetic results, complete cancer removal and timely return to your normal activities.

What to expect at your skin check appointment?

A full skin check is conducted with a head to toe examination of the skin using dermatoscopy. The dermatoscope uses a polarized light to view specific moles at magnification.

Each skin lesion is viewed through the dermatoscope in turn and compared with other skin lesions, to make a diagnosis. Whilst most lesions are benign -sunspots, seborrhoeic keratosis and moles; our aim is to establish whether a skin lesion should be removed to rule out a melanoma, basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) or other type of skin cancer.

When a definite diagnosis of a benign lesion cannot be made confidently, the lesion is then re-examined a second time.

There are three outcomes from the re-examination of lesions:

  • No monitoring required.
  • Monitor the lesion for any changes at a follow up appointment (between 1 and 3 months)
  • Biopsy is required. A biopsy involves removing a sample of cells (under local anaesthetic) and examining these cells under a microscope. This is booked at a later time and the lesion sent for histology.
