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.
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
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.
