Doctors at Plenty Road Medical Centre are able to perform minor procedures in our well-equipped treatment room. We have an autoclave for the sterilisation of equipment and instruments. We are fully accredited and comply with Australian standards and regulations.
Minor procedures, such as excisions and suturing require a longer consult. Please ensure you advise our reception staff upon making an appointment so that we can ensure adequate time is allowed with your doctor.
There is a non-refundable fee for these minor procedures, the details of which are listed on our fee schedule.
Chronic Disease Management Plans
Plenty Road Medical Centre has nurses who oversee chronic disease management.
A chronic medical condition is one that has been present for six months or longer. For example, it includes conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma and arthritis requiring specialist care. Your Doctor will assess whether a plan is appropriate for you.
We work with our patients on prevention of chronic diseases and provide regular checks relevant to their condition to achieve better outcomes.
Over 75 Health Assessments
Over 75 Health Assessments are a part of the Federal Government initiatives designed to promote and maintain good health as well as independence for older Australians.
This is a full comprehensive annual medical check performed by our nurses and there is no out-of-pocket expense.
The assessment usually takes an hour and provides a detailed overall view of your general health. The check covers areas such as sight, hearing, diet, your current medications and your immunisations.
At the conclusion of the health assessment you will discuss the findings with your own Doctor in an appointment organised at a time suitable to you.
Vaccination is a vital part of preventive medicine, from new born babies through to adulthood. At Plenty Road Medical Centre we have nurses, who together with our doctors provide this service to our patients.
