Chronic Disease Management Care Plans

Health Assessments

Preventative Health Care

Education for Geriatrics

Antenatal Care

Several of our Gp's have a special interest in Antenatal Care and co-ordinate 'Shared Care' arrangements with Ipswich General Hospital, Maternity Unit.

'Shared Care' means that the majority of your antenatal care will be conducted by your GP at Grange Road Medical. You would be advised when you were required to attend antenatal clinics at the hospital.

Ipswich also has several Obstetrians in private practice. Your GP can refer you as you require.

Postnatal Care: Again the care of mother and newborn baby can be handled by your GP. A six(6) week post natal check is recommended and will include both mother and baby.

Care Plans and Health Assessments

Care Plans are available for patients with a chronic disease. These plans allow you, the patient, to learn more about your disease and assistance that you may be eligible for, eg podiatry, dietitian, physiotherapist.

Medicare allows several services per year for eligible patients.

The initial assessment and paperwork is conducted by several of our nurses who have specialised knowledge in this area. You are also scheduled a consultation with your GP who will discuss the plan with you and do any necessary referrals.

Childhood Vaccinations

Most of our doctors have special morning vaccination clinics scheduled, with clinics being available every morning, Monday to Friday.

These clinics allow for your baby or toddler to have a full check with the Doctor of your choice assisted by one of our nurses. They decrease your waiting time and are bulk billed. We are also able to offer you a Health Kids Check for your child once they turn 3 and a half.

This is an ideal opportunity to check all aspects of their development before they start school.

Health Assessments

We find these assessments a valuable opportunity to assess your overall health and your needs and would encourage every patient in this age group to take advantage of this assessment.

One of the more important outcomes of these assessments is to enable you to continue living in your own home with appropriate support. Again, these are initially conducted by our nurses, with a follow up consultation with your GP.

These assessments are covered by Medicare and there will be no 'out of pocket' expense to you.

Emergency Care

Accident and Emergency

Home Visits

Some of our doctors are available for their regular patients who live within 5 km of the surgery which is located at 92 Grange Road, Eastern Heights, Ipswich Queensland.

Home visits from these doctors are available if that patient's illness prevents them from coming to the surgery.

However, it is always preferable for a patient to attend the surgery, as your doctor will have access to all necessary equipment to treat you adequately.

If you require a medical certificate for work or school, it is necessary for you to attend for a consultation. It is illegal for a certificate to be back dated or to be issued without a consult.

Pathology Test Results

If Doctor is concerned, he or she will contact you direct or ask one of our staff to contact you on his/her behalf. We ask that you phone for results between 9am and 3pm, if possible, as there are more staff available to assist you.

We have a designated mobile number for your convenience and this is manned between 9am and 3pm. 0499 737 858

Prescriptions and Referrals

Repeat prescriptions for regular medications may sometimes be provided without your needing to see your doctor. We do ask that you give doctor one week's notice. There will usually be a fee for this service of between $5 and $10.

It is necessary to have a referral from your GP in order to consult a specialist. Health Department regulations require this referral in order for you to be able to obtain a medicare rebate for the visit.

Government regulations also prevent referrals from being backdated. It is therefore necessary for you to request and collect referrals prior to your specialist appointment. We require at least one week's notice for your doctor to write any referral. A consultation is required if you have not had a referral to a particular specialist from your doctor before.

Specialist fees differ from those charged in General Practice and we advise you to contact the specialist for this information.

Skin and Skin Cancer Screening

Grange Road Medical has specialised equipment allowing our doctors to provide a full screening service using the latest digital dermoscopy.

A Skin Clinic is a service provided at Grange Road Medical. We have specialised equipment within the Skin Clinic such as our Mole Scan Unit.

Travel Medicine Clinic

We are proud to announce our association with Australia's well known national organisation of independent travel medicine professionals, The Travel Medicine Alliance. This allows us as Ipswich Travel Medicine Clinic, access to the latest information on travel health and vaccinations.

Our service will encompass the whole travel experience from pre-travel consultations through to those last minute travellers, and also offer medical attention for returned travellers with conditions potentially contracted while overseas.

We could be considered a 'one-stop shop' from the travel medicine point-of-view, as we will have vaccines, medical kits and instructions.
