Norfolk House 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.

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.

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.

Victor Harbor Cosmetic Clinic is located at Norfolk House Medical Centre. Dr Mulvihill has additional training and experience to safely treat a variety of skin problems and reduce the changes seen with aging and sun-damaged skin. Treatments are available for forehead wrinkles, crows feet, frown lines, eyebrow lifts, neck and chin.

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.

Palliative care helps people with a terminal illness live their life as fully and comfortably as possible. Our GPs will act as part of a team to provide individual care including pain relief, counselling and grief support, financial support, and assistance to live at home.

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.

Your weight is impacted on by a range of complex factors including early life, genetics, diet and activity levels. Staying a healthy weight will reduce your risk of serious long-term complications. Our GPs will look at your medical history, recommend suitable, long-term strategies and refer to other healthcare providers such as dieticians. Please consult your GP before embarking on a weight loss program, especially if you are on medication or have other health issues.

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