Vaccinations

We offer a range of vaccinations and immunizations including:

Children’s immunizations: the full range of recommended childhood vaccinations delivered by our friendly doctors or nurses. Remember, the No Jab, No Play policy now applies in Victorian child care centres.

Flu – immunisations against the flu are critical for the young and elderly and anyone with a compromised immune system, as well as anyone who may come into contact with vulnerable people. It is recommended that all pregnant women receive a fluvax vaccination. This service will be bulk billed.

Adult immunizations – just because you were vaccinated as a child does not mean you aren’t at risk. Routine vaccinations and boosters are recommended every 5-10 years. Speak to your GP about whether you should consider a booster shot.

Travel – we offer a range of travel vaccinations but please call in advance to ensure availability.

Children’s Services

Elmwood Medical Centre has a strong focus on children’s health. We believe early intervention is critical to longer term health and well- being for both physical and mental health.

Elmwood Medical Centre is committed to providing high quality care to our youngest patients. We are 11 years old and it is our pleasure and privilege to have cared for many of our patients since birth.

We bulk bill all our patients and whenever possible we try to ensure that our littlest patients can get an emergency appointment on the same day.

Our friendly doctors and nurses will take the time to put your child at ease during normal consultations and for immunisations.

Our children’s services include immunisations, hearing and sight assessments, and developmental checks. We look forward to watching you grow up to be big and strong!

Drs Carmen Padilla and Imalka Wettesinghe both have a Diploma of Children’s Health.

Mental Health & Wellbeing

We are proud to have been the first clinic in the area to offer an in-house mental health program.

Our GP’s are experienced in the treatment of depression, stress management, addiction, anxiety, grief and other mental health issues, and provide mental health care for children, adolescents and adults.

Discussions about mental health concerns should never feel rushed so please book a longer appointment to enable your doctor to spend additional time with you.

Our GP’s can also assist you to develop your own mental health treatment plan to give you access to Medicare funded psychology services.

Preventative Health Care

At the Elmwood Medical Centre our aim is to help you to be proactive in keeping yourself well, both now and for the future.

We encourage you to take an active interest in your own health and wellbeing, to minimise the risks of a range of chronic diseases and live your life to the fullest.

Preventative health checks can assist you and your doctor to keep watch for signs that your health may be at risk in the future via regular checks to screen for:

  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Eyesight and hearing issues
  • Skin cancer

We offer the following health assessments:

  • Health assessments for patients ages 45-49 years old
  • Annual health checks for patients aged 75+
  • Mental Health Plans

 

We can also coordinate team care arrangements for patients who have chronic or complex conditions. We can refer you to and liaise with a wide range of local allied health service providers such as podiatrists, osteopaths, psychologists and others who can provide valuable input, care and management to help you achieve optimal health outcomes.

Our doctors will let you know if you are eligible for one of these plans, or you can talk to our receptionists to arrange one of these health assessments at your next visit. You may wish to book a long consultation for these discussions to maximise your time with your doctor.
