Great Medical Centres
Our medical centres are owned and operated by Great Ocean Road Health, providing several dedicated, highly skilled practitioners who are able to perform a range of health services to members of the local community and visitors to the region.
Our medical centre services include:
- health check-ups and assessments
- care plans (including advanced care planning)
- pre-employment medicals
- family planning
- minor procedures such as excision of skin lesions, hormone implantation and repair of skin lacerations
- medication review
Your health is important, and we encourage you to see your local GPs for regular health check-ups and vaccinations, help with advanced care planning, or if you’re experiencing illness or injury.
HOME VISITS & TELEHEALTH
For patients unable to attend the practice, home visits are available locally for regular patients of the practice at the doctors discretion. Please discuss your requirements with our receptionist.
Telehealth appointments are available for patients to access their specialists. Telehealth aims to complement the important role that GPs play in the provision of after hours care in rural areas. The video-call based service is accessed via the MED App on a smart phone or tablet. This gives medical staff immediate access to a team of Emergency Specialists who can remotely access, diagnose and arrange treatment for patients.
In the interest of minimising and detecting side effects and to ensure that prescribed medications continue to be appropriate, no scripts will be repeated without an appointment with your doctor.
