In-home Health Assessments
We offer Health Assessments in the home for our patients over 75 years of age. These assessments are encouraged, as they provide a comprehensive review of health.
Our registered nurse visits the patient in their home to assess their nutrition and vision, their safety in their home environment, and their current health needs. Kedron Wavell Medical Centre is committed to the continuity of healthcare.
GP Management Plans
For patients with complex medical needs Kedron Wavell Medical Centre provides management plans that enable doctors to plan and coordinate the health care of patients with chronic or terminal medical conditions.
A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke.
If you have a chronic condition, with or without complex care needs, a GP Management Plan will enable your GP to provide a structured approach to your care. It is a plan of action in which you agree management goals with your GP. Once you have a GP Management Plan in place, you are able to access up to five allied health services each calendar year.
The five services can be provided by a single allied health provider or shared across different providers. You can request that your GP refer you to an allied health provider you already know, or your GP can recommend one.
