  • Health Services For Women

Our team includes General Practitioners and Nurses with a special interest and training in women’s health.

Our Nurse, Jayne Tonkin RN, and our Nurse Practitioner, Annette Walker, conduct Cervical Screening Tests and women’s health checks.

This service is becoming increasingly popular, giving patients the option of either seeing their doctor, nurse practitioner or nurse.

Jayne also conducts our Well Women clinics. Should you wish to book in for one of the clinics please ask our reception staff.

Coronavirus Health Alert

As the threat level of COVID-19 is currently low in South Australia, we’re now offering face-to-face appointments. We are watching the situation in Victoria, ACT, and NSW closely.

We continue to observe social distancing and limit the number of patients in our waiting room.

If you have travelled from Victoria, New South Wales or the ACT, you are required to have a COVID-19 test on arrival and again at day 12 of your quarantine. If you would like help arranging this, please schedule a telehealth consult with a GP.

If you have symptoms of the flu, a cold, or loss of sense of smell or taste, please book a telephone consult with a GP first so that an appropriate safe review can be arranged.

For patients with other conditions who would prefer a telephone or video consult, these appointments will continue to be available for eligible patients (please see below).

The Government has now restricted COVID-19 Medicare GP telehealth items to circumstances where a patient has an existing relationship with a general practice (i.e. the patient has visited a GP in the practice face-to-face in the last 12 months), other than for children aged under 12 months or patients who are homeless.

Please be assured that our clinic is COVID-19 safe, and we remain prepared to transition back to telephone triage of all consults should COVID-19 threat levels increase.
