Ipswich Road Medical Centre 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.

Our GPs have strong interests in improving the health and wellbeing of our patients, and we provide support and guidance every step of the way. 

To obtain a Queensland issued driver authorisation, an applicant must provide a current medical certificate issued for a commercial vehicle driver. To obtain the medical certificate, the applicant must complete a Private and Commercial Vehicle Driver's Health Assessment (form F3195) and present it to their medical practitioner. The Medical Certificate for Motor Vehicle Driver (form F3712) is the approved form for the certificate.

 

A medical certificate must be no more than 6 months old when presented and will remain current for up to 5 years from the date it was issued by the medical practitioner. However, a conditional medical certificate may be issued by the medical practitioner for a lesser period, especially if the driver suffers from a medical condition that requires more regular assessment. The term of the driver authorisation cannot exceed the expiry date of a medical certificate.

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.

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.

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.
