At Healthure Medical centres we specialise in offering you the best general practice care. General practice is the first point of contact when you have an illness or injury. This makes general practice the centre of primary health care. General practice includes but is not limited to:
Treatment of Acute and Chronic medical conditionsThis includes anything from your everyday cold and flu to the more chronic conditions such as Diabetes, Hypertension, and High Cholesterol to name just a few.
Our doctors will answer all your questions and guide you through your treatment plans.
Preventative MedicineStay healthy by doing your regular preventative health checks. These include risk assessment, routine health check-ups, flu vaccinations.
Skin ChecksDid you know that skin is our largest organ? Our skin covers our whole body and we need to get to know it intimately so that we can recognise any changes as soon as they occur. Sun spots, moles and any skin changes should be checked by a medical practitioner to ensure that they are normal and non-cancerous.
Skin cancers (including melanoma) that are detected and treated early have a better outcome than most other types of cancer. Also, skin cancer that is found early needs less invasive treatment.
From 1st December, 2017 the Pap test has been replaced with the new Cervical Screening Test. Women who have ever been sexually active should have a cervical screening test every 5 years (unless you have certain risk factors which may require you to do Pap smears more frequently).
For most women cervical screening will start at age 25 years of age and continue until 74 years of age. Please book an appointment and speak with your doctor if you have any questions.
The GP’s at Healthsure Medical Centres will perform Cervical Screening test’s on request by appointment only so please advise our administration staff when booking your appointment.
Other Women’s health appointments include but are not limited to:
· Contraceptive advice
· Implanon insertion and Removal
