Flu vaccine season has arrived

Apr 18 2017
We have this year’s influenza vaccine in stock and invite those who wish to have a vaccine to book an appointment with the nurses. This is an inactivated vaccine and therefore cannot infect you with the flu (it encourages the body to make antibodies against the flu strains that we expect to arrive this winter). It is free until the 31st December 2017 for pregnant women; all over 65 years and for those of all ages who have chronic conditions, such as asthma, bronchitis, CORD, heart disease etc. For those not in the subsidised categories there is a charge of $32.

Drivers’ Licence Medicals

Apr 18 2017
All patients, aged 75 years or more, require a regular full medical check to ensure they are fit to drive a motor vehicle and retain their drivers’ licence. This usually requires a double appointment as it is a comprehensive assessment, with a four page document that needs to be completed by your doctor. The fee range is between $140 and $180. There is no significant government subsidy for this appointment and we are not able to attend to other medical issues at that time. Older patients will require a memory test score at the medical centre and some will require an on road test or simulated driving assessment elsewhere.
