Wellness on Wellington – Services
Our Medical Services
Wellness on Wellington provides a full range of medical services including:
All children should be immunised against the major childhood diseases and a certificate of vaccination is required to commence school. Please inform the staff when booking your appointment as sometimes extra information is needed. We will forward details of the vaccines given to the Australian Childhood Immunisation Registry which will assist with family payments and school enrolment.
Adults should consider Hepatitis B and Influenza vaccines and ensure their tetanus is up to date. We strongly recommend Influenza vaccine every year and Pneumonia vaccine every 5 years for those aged over 65, and for those with chronic illnesses like asthma, diabetes and heart disease. On weekdays between the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. we bulkbill immunisation visits for current patients of the practice where no other issues are addressed.
We treat sports injuries on our own and in conjunction with our physiotherapist, chiropractor and osteopaths. We can also provide advice and guidance regarding nutrition, training programs and injury prevention.
Obstetrics and Women’s Health
We provide education, advice and treatment regarding issues such as family planning, contraception, hormone replacement therapy and the menopause. Most of our doctors are qualified to insert Implanon – a three year contraceptive. We can also insert Mirena and copper IUDs. All women should have annual breast checks and Pap smears every 2 years. We also undertake pregnancy shared care with local specialists and hospitals.
We provide all types of WorkCover related consultations, pre-employment medicals and advice to both employers and employees about occupational health and safety.
Most travel destinations carry some risks. Those planning overseas trips should see us, preferably 6 months before leaving, but at least 6 weeks, for advice regarding immunisation, as multiple vaccinations may need to be given over this period.
Most moles and ‘lumps and bumps’ can be treated at the surgery. All equipment used is either disposable and used only once, or is sterilised in our autoclave. Many warts, spots and blemishes are suitable for freezing treatment with liquid nitrogen or electrical diathermy. Minor fractures are treated at the surgery. Ear and belly-rings can be inserted almost painlessly.
Vasectomies are performed at the surgery under sedative anaesthetic. Prior to this procedure, a detailed explanation is given at a consultation. Please ask the doctors or receptionists about how to arrange this.
Lifestyle Advice and Preventative Medicine
We are eager to prevent disease as well as treat it. Help to stop cigarette smoking, alcohol moderation, diet, stress management, weight loss and exercise prescriptions are just some of the issues we are happy to discuss. To encourage health promotion, we often send reminders to patients reminding them of Pap smears, immunisations and so on. If you do not wish to receive these, please let us know.
Assessment of prostate and testicle disease and the increased risk of heart attack and strokes are addressed. Complete Men?s Health checks are particularly worthwhile for men over 40 years.
Skin Check Clinic
At this clinic a full body skin check will be provided by one of a number of our GP’s with a special interest in skin cancer. These practitioners have undergone additional training in this field. Please note we are not equipped for full body photography and suggest you discuss other options with us if you have a very large number of moles.
Extended Health Check Ups
Medicare provides a rebate for a mid-life health assessment for 45-49 year olds. This is not an annual visit, but a one-off thorough review of your health and risk factors. Please ask for a double appointment when booking this.
There is also an annual checkup available for patients over the age of 75, which we perform in conjunction with a home visit by our practice nurse. Speak to the nursing staff to arrange this worthwhile review.
