Cairnlea Superclinic Services

 

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

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.

Immunisation protects children against a range of preventable and life-threatening diseases and infections. Some recommended vaccines are funded by the government.

If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, arthritis, stroke, cancer and chronic pain, our GPs can help you manage and coordinate the ongoing care you receive from all your healthcare providers.

Priya Rawat is an accredited practicing dietitian. She consults at our clinic every 2nd Tuesday. Private and EPC patients accepted.

As your life changes, your approach to looking after your diabetes will also need adjustment. You make many decisions every day which will affect your diabetes. These are often simple, everyday decisions such as when and what to eat, when to exercise, how often to monitor blood glucose levels and when to take diabetic medication.

You don’t have to do it alone, we can assist you to learn more about diabetes, decide on a course of action and develop a diabetes self-management plan to suit your lifestyle and circumstances.

The goal of a DMMR is to maximise an individual patient’s benefit from their medication regimen and prevent medication-related problems through a team approach, involving the patient’s GP and preferred community pharmacy. It may also involve other relevant members of the health care team; such as nurses in community practice or carers.

This may only be initiated by a patient’s GP after assessing the patient’s need for the service.

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 doctors do a range of minor procedures such as wedge resections, diagnostic biopsy of skin, removal of foreign body and wound repairs. 

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