IMPORTANT NOTE FOR TRAVELLERS:
It is illegal to take or send PBS subsidised medicines out of Australia unless it is for your personal use or the use of someone travelling with you. Fines are steep - up to $5,000 and/or two years imprisonment.
If you plan to take prescription medicine overseas it is important to carry documentation to present to customs officials:
Carry a letter from your doctor explaining what the medicine is, how much you are taking or sending and that is for personal use. Check with the Embassy of the country you are visiting to check the medicine is legal. Always leave medicine in its original packaging. Attach a completed customs declaration form to your parcel if sending medicine overseas.

An important part of staying healthy is to visit your doctor, at least once a year for a full check up. This check up can include:
Blood Tests, ECG, Blood Pressure Check, Skin Check, Hearing Test, Lung Function Test, Height, Weight and Urine Test.
We can also include discussions on diet, exercise, stress, family, relationships and a review of your current medications and immunisation status.
- and for the men this may include a Prostate Check
- and for the ladies a PAP and Breast Check
When booking your next "annual check up" appointment please advise our reception staff to book a 15 minute time with the nurse and 15 minutes with the doctor. This will certainly keep you on the road to continuing good health.
