Spot and Mole Check:
Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers in Australia. It can be successfully treated if found early. We all have moles and most moles usually look alike. If you find one that looks unusual do not hesitate to come in and get it checked out.
Antenatal Shared Care:
Shared care is an arrangement between a hospital and a GP. Your pregnancy care is divided between the local provider and the hospital. You will have some of your antenatal appointments with your local provider and others with the hospital, depending on the reason for the visit. Most tests and scans, for example, would take place at the hospital.
Most hospitals that offer shared care do so only for women with low-risk pregnancies.
In Australia, GPs who provide shared care will often have extra obstetric training and qualifications and a special arrangement with the maternity hospital where you want to give birth to your baby.
Please chat to our receptionist and they can book you in with one of our doctors that has this arrangement with West Gippsland Hospital (Warragul).
