Travel Vaccines

Planning travel can be an exciting time however it is vital for you to prepare and be adequately immunised prior to starting your holiday. Our doctors can provide comprehensive travel consultations and can advise you what vaccinations are required for all destinations.

Please make an appointment with your doctor well in advance as some vaccinations are required to be given over a specific time frame.

In addition to vaccinations we may provide other advice specific to your destination.

For your convenience Kingsgrove Medical Centre stores most travel vaccinations, and these are to be paid for on the day of service.

Over 75 Health

Over 75 Health Assessments are a part of the Federal Government initiatives designed to promote and maintain good health as well as independence for older Australians.

This is a full comprehensive annual medical check and there is no out-of-pocket expense.

The assessment usually takes an hour and provides a detailed overall view of your general health. The check covers areas such as sight, hearing, diet, your current medications and your immunisations.

At the conclusion of the health assessment you will discuss the findings with your own Doctor.

Minor Procedures

Doctors at Kingsgrove Medical Centre are able to perform minor procedures in our new well-equipped treatment rooms with the assistance of our nurse.

Minor procedures, such as excisions and suturing require a longer consult. Please ensure you advise our reception staff upon making an appointment so that we can ensure adequate time is allowed with your doctor.

Womens Health and Family Planning

When you and your partner are planning to start a family, it is an ideal time to make an appointment as a couple to see a doctor at Kingsgrove Medical Centre for pre-pregnancy checks. It is ideal to optimise your health prior to conception. There are vaccines that you may require prior to pregnancy to reduce your risk of infection. Screening tests can also be considered for couples as part of the process of planning a pregnancy.

Skin Cancer Checks

Most skin cancer can be successfully treated if it is found early. But without treatment, skin cancer can be deadly.

All Australians are encouraged to protect their skin from the damage caused by UV rays of the sun and to get to know their skin. Check all of your skin, not just sun-exposed areas. If you notice anything unusual, including any change in shape, colour or size of a spot, or a new spot, visit your doctor as soon as possible.

It is also advisable to have annual skin checks with your doctor. You can make an appointment with a doctor at Kingsgrove Medical Centre for a full skin check. Please book a long appointment or advise the staff that this is what the appointment is for.
