Managing your asthma means taking control of your health so that you can live a full and active life. While asthma can’t be cured, for most people it can be well controlled, which means hardly any symptoms or flare-ups, or limits to your lifestyle. With the correct knowledge, skills and medication you can do just about anything – asthma shouldn’t stop you! Contact our reception staff on 6281 5060 to make an appointment with your GP to discuss your Asthma Action Plan and click here for more information.

A catch-up program will be available to all people aged 16 and 19 years through GPs in the first year of the program beginning February 2018. Students who miss the vaccination through school will be able to receive it through their GP in the same calendar year.

Influenza (flu) is a highly contagious viral infection that spreads easily from person to person through coughing, sneezing and close contact.
Unlike a cold, symptoms such as fever, sore throat and muscle aches develop suddenly with flu and last about a week. In some cases, severe illness and complications such as pneumonia and bronchitis can develop, which can result in hospitalisation and even death. The flu can also make some existing medical conditions worse.
The flu virus can be especially dangerous for elderly people, pregnant women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and very young children, as well as for people with underlying medical conditions.
