Gungahlin Family Healthcare Services

 

We cater to the health needs of all your family. Here are some of our main services.

Your GP can help you stay independent for longer and to live with dignity. We can help with issues such as incontinence, mobility, falls, or declining memory. Many assessments, treatments and medicines for older people are subsidised by the government. Just ask your GP.

Many people self-diagnose allergies and self-medicate or change their diets, without seeing an allergy specialist. Our GPs offer accurate diagnosis of allergies using reviews of your medical history, physical examinations and testing, such as skin prick tests.

The purpose of antenatal care is to improve the health and wellbeing of mum and baby and should begin before pregnancy. Our GPs provide support and guidance every steps of the way. The health of both mum and baby is monitored through regular examinations, screening tests and ultrasounds.

Our GPs help women at every stage of life including contraception, cervical screening, sexual problems, pregnancy, ovarian cysts, period problems and menopause.

Immunisation protects children against a range of preventable and life-threatening diseases and infections. Some recommended vaccines are funded by the government. Routine immunisations for children under four include; chickenpox, hepatitis B, measles, meningococcal AWCY, mumps, polio, pneumococcal, rubella, tetanus and whooping cough.

GP Management Plans are comprehensive, long-term care plans, made just for you if you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, arthritis, stroke, cancer and chronic pain. Our GPs will manage and coordinate the ongoing care you receive from all your healthcare providers.

It’s important to protect yourself and your family from serious and preventable diseases and infections. Our GPs provide the protection you need with vaccinations for children, travel, your work and more.

Speak to your GP if you’re struggling to cope, feeling low or anxious. Our GPs can assess your condition and may provide therapy and treatment. Our GPs also support people with dependence or addiction problems.

Employers may require health screening. Our GPs provide pre-employment health assessments including hearing, vision and fitness tests. Blood and urine tests can also be arranged. Injured at work? Your medical expenses and wages may be covered under workers compensation and WorkCover.

Our GPs have additional training and experience to assess, diagnose and treat skin cancers. We use special equipment including dermatoscopes and photographic monitoring of skin lesions to assess your skin. We can sometimes treat pre-cancerous lesions and early skin cancers with non-surgical treatments. The surgical services we provide include biopsies, excisions, cryotherapy and curettage of superficial skin lesions. When necessary, our GPs will also perform skin flaps and grafts.

Perform your best with the help of your GP. We not only treat injuries but offer advice on physical fitness, exercise, nutrition planning and rehabilitation.

Our GPs offer education and advice to minimise health risks while travelling and provide medications and immunisations. Common requirements are prevention of malaria or altitude sickness, treatments for diarrhoea and allergies. We are also an approved yellow fever vaccination clinic and provide you with yellow fever vaccination certification in the form approved by the World Health Organisation (WHO). This is essential for travel to areas such as sub-Saharan Africa and tropical South America. Please make sure you book in for your yellow fever vaccination no less than 10 days before entering a risk area.

Vasectomies are available at Gungahlin Family Healthcare. Dr Burns has over 20 years' experience performing vasectomies. Vasectomies are minimally invasive and performed under local anaesthetic so you can drive immediately after the procedure and take minimal time off work.

Our GPs play a central role in managing an injured worker's health and wellbeing and are vital in influencing health and return to work outcomes.

In most cases, an injured worker will rely on their GP for advice, coordinating medical treatment and services, and to assist with their overall recovery, rehabilitation and return to work.

 

Several of our GPs have special interests in Men's Health and work with their patients to provide effective strategies that improve male health and wellbeing. 

Our doctors  can assist patients to have a physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. They can assist patients to have a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, and provide advice on contraception, STIs and other sexually related issues.
