We choose doctors who bring specialist skills to Kyneton so we can offer you a wide range of services close to home. We know you probably don't want to travel to Bendigo, Melbourne or Sunbury to get the services you need. Our GPs can help steer you in the right direction, if you need specialist help you can be referred to an on-site allied health professional, with substantial Medicare rebates.
General Practitioner Services
At Campaspe Family Practice we take pride in the depth of experience our GPs bring to Kyneton. Our GPs can provide treatment for a wide range of medical concerns but we are also proactive with preventative health solutions.
We like to identify problems early so we recommend annual health checks. An annual health check involves spending around one hour with a nurse and then meeting with your GP. This typically assesses cardiac risk factors, lung function, fasting pathology, diet, depression, weight and pre-diabetes factors amongst others.
You may not realise it, but if you have a chronic disease, you can access various allied health services through Medicare with substantial rebates or no out-of-pocket costs to you at all, and all onsite at Campaspe Family Practice.
Even if you're not under a Chronic Disease Management plan – you can still access our allied health professionals for their usual fee.
The allied health services available for consultation at the Practice are:
· Child psychologist
· Speech pathology
· Sleep studies
· Pacemaker checks
Just speak with your doctor about these services and a referral can be made if needed.
Our doctors can refer you to a psychologist or other service to help you with bereavement. A link to a local bereavement service can be viewed here.
Chronic Disease Management Plans
If you suffer from a chronic condition (a condition that persists for more than six months), we can help you manage this through our Chronic Disease Clinic.
Some conditions that we can manage are:
· Coronary heart disease
· Arthritis - Rheumatoid/Osteo
Under a Chronic Disease Management Plan, you can access five allied health services per calendar year through Medicare with substantial rebates and sometimes no out-of-pocket costs to you at all.
This includes physiotherapy, chiropractic, dietetics, diabetes education, exercise physiology, occupational therapy, osteopathy, podiatry, psychology, speech pathology and more.
We can refer you directly to internal allied health professionals right here at our Practice. These services will be bulk billed through Medicare's Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) scheme.
Please note this cannot be arranged through a standard appointment and must be managed through our Chronic Disease Clinic. To check your eligibility please have a chat with your doctor.
