Immunisations

Adult and childhood immunisations can be conducted by the practice nurses. Influenza and pneumonia vaccines  for those over 65 years old, and childhood vaccines are provided. For other immunisations, a script will need to be obtained from a doctor before purchasing the vaccine from the chemist.

Our practice nurses also manage travel vaccinations. Please be aware that vaccinations for overseas travel are often complex and require a number of consultations to complete the process. Please book an appointment  well in advance (eg two months) of your travel date. Overseas travel advice and vaccines are not subsidised by medicare.

Wound Care

Dressing changes or removal of stitches can be performed by our treatment nurse.

For dressing changes, a fee of $5.00 will be charged to cover the cost of the dressing pack and an additional $11 for the nurses time unless on a concession/pension card.

Please book all appointments with Reception (08) 8841 3777
