Zoltan

Nurse

Our nurses have undergone extensive training in General Practice nursing and have also worked in hospital settings. They see most new patients to complete baseline information. Our nurses are Immunisation Accredited and provide most childhood and adult vaccinations. Our nurses also provide advice and support with wound care management. They assess new patients, help with chronic disease management and assist with GP Management and Team Care Plans.

GP Management Plans and Team Care Arrangements for patients with chronic medical conditions. They form a framework for agreeing on management goals with individual patients and identifying actions to be taken by patients. These goals are then reviewed with the GP each 3 to 6 months.

When a GP Management Plan and Team Care Arrangement is in place, patients with chronic diseases can then be referred to Allied Health Providers.

These Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) referrals entitle patients to five Medicare subsidised sessions per calendar year. They facilitate communication between GPs, specialists and Allied Health professionals, which enhances patient care.
