Changes to our GP’s
In February 2017 we are sad to announce we will bid farewell to our GP registrar Drs David Chen and Mei Lyn Tan, who will move onto another practice in Melbourne to complete their Registrar Training, we thank them and wish them good luck for the future.
Dr Linda Thompson regrettably will finish with our practice at the end of March, with view to moving into locum work for a period of time in a warmer climate. We thank Dr Thompson for her time and dedication to all her patients over the last 7 years both within the community and within the aged care facilities in Coleraine.
Also we advise sadly that Dr Ramin Taheri ceased working with the clinic in November after 7 years with the practice and has since relocated to Sydney.
We have our 2017 Registrars Drs Alison Brown and Khaled Moussa commencing with us in February, who will consult across both clinics and. Please join us in making our new registrars feel welcome!
It is also a pleasure to welcome Lona to our reception team in the Coleraine Clinic who has proved to be a great asset and learning the role and community members quickly.
SMS Appointment Reminders
Commencing in January 2017 the clinic will now utilise SMS reminders for your appointment time, fees may also be incurred for patients who fail to attend booked appointments. Please update your mobile phone details to ensure we can provide this service to you. If you do not wish to receive reminders via sms please advise reception staff and they will amend your clinical record.
Although it is only December the flu season will creep up again. This year we will run our flu clinics across the course of the day. The start date is yet to be determined as this will depend on supply.
If you are over 65 years of age, are pregnant or have a chronic condition eg: asthma or diabetes you will be entitled to a free government supplied flu vaccine. If you do not qualify for a government supplied vaccine, we will provide the latest quadrivalent flu vaccine for the same price as last year.
