Our Medical Services
We endeavour to offer a range of services to enable maximum scope of care locally.
Skin Cancer Clinics
All GPs in our practice have a wealth of knowledge about skin cancer. Discuss with your GP about having a skin check – this may be done by your GP in a long appointment, or you can book into our regular skin clinic sessions. Our doctors are able to assist with simple through to complex excisions at the medical centre in our dedicated treatment rooms.
We are committed to reconciliation. We provide care to indigenous families across their lifespan, and welcome all patients to the practice and to our outreach clinics. We have support from our nurses to assist with preventative health and the health assessment needs of the community. Please ask about having a 715 today.
Goondiwindi Medical Centre provides excellent access to public health measures to reduce spread of infectious diseases. We have a comprehensive list of vaccines available, including Q fever and, most recently, Yellow Fever.
Pathology & Ultrasound.
On site pathology (S & N) and Goondiwindi Ultrasound.
We run dedicated clinics and time with your nominated GP and the practice nurse to navigate you through your chronic disease. We aim to review your care arrangements and management plans every 3-6 months.
Our GPs enjoy all aspects of women’s health. We provide sexual health, preconception advice, antenatal and postnatal care, family planning (including Mirena and Implanon insertion), and pregnancy options and counseling. Some of our GPs offer labour and delivery services at the Goondiwindi Hospital within the Goondiwindi Midwifery Group Practice.
All GPs in the practice stay up to date with mental health skills. We are well supported by local psychologists, community mental health nurses, and telehealth to psychiatry. After hours access is provided at Goondiwindi Hospital in emergency cases.
Technology allows our patients to access specialist care not available in rural facilities without leaving town. Examples include paediatric advice, geriatricians, and psychiatry. If you live remote to our clinic please ask you GP about using telehealth to follow up your consult from home (fees apply).
Many of our GPs have an interest in child health. We offer routine immunisations and check-ups in line with National Immunisation Schedule. We are happy to see children of any age when they are sick or if you are concerned about their development.
These are shared appointments with a nurse and doctor to review your overall health and assist you in making decisions about improving your well-being
We strive to identify gaps in care within the surrounds of Goondiwindi and extend services where able into satellite clinics. Currently this includes Boggabilla Community Health.
Workcover & InjuryNet
Comprehensive occupational medicine and access to local allied health members to assist with return to work.
This is provided in the home and at sessional visits to our residential aged care facility – Kaloma. GPs make regular visits to Kaloma and are well supported by the staff there to continue meeting the needs of our elderly population.
We welcome men to see us for a range of health issues. We encourage review of your mental health, cardiovascular risk, cancer screening and reproductive and sexual health.
