Speak to your GP about whether you should consider a booster shot.
Travel – It is recommended that the clinic be consulted at least 2 to 3 months in advance of the travel schedule to allow adequate time to optimise the immunization. Some of the recommended vaccinations for travelers include typhoid, rabies, meningococcal disease, Japanese encephalitis, influenza, hepatitis B, hepatitis A, cholera, Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG), yellow fever, tetanus and diphtheria, poliomyelitis, pertussis, and measles-mumps-rubella.

GP Management Plans have been developed under the Medicare Benefits Scheme to provide a more structured approach to caring for patients with chronic diseases. These promote focused treatment, and aims to achieve better outcomes for patients with a chronic medical condition. A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer. Check with your GP to see if you are eligible for a care plan.
Chronic Disease Management
A chronic disease is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and emphysema. Our doctors can prepare management plans to coordinate the care and treatment of your illness.
How diabetes is managed is dependent on the type of diabetes and each individual. Managing diabetes can involve keeping blood glucose levels in a healthy range, watching your diet, regular exercise and paying close attention to treating other risk factors. When under observation, these factors can significantly reduce the risk of long term complications. Check with your GP about a diabetes management plan.
