CARE PLANS

Care plans allow time outside your normal consultations to ensure we are best managing your chronic medical conditions.  They are bulk billed to medicare with no out of pocket cost.

Patients are eligible if they have a medical condition lasting longer than 6 months.  Common conditions include arthritis, osteoporosis, heart and lung disease, diabetes and many more.

Care plans are facilitated by our nursing team and include time with your GP, and they focus on aligning both the GP and your health goals so that we are all working together towards better health.

If you have allied health practitioners involved in the care of that condition, you will likely be eligible for a referral for 5 medicare funded allied health consultations (individual allied health determine if there is a gap with these consultations).

Speak to your GP or one of our staff to find out more.
