Understanding General Practice (Gp) in Australia

If you are a resident of Australia, it is essential to understand the Australian healthcare system. This article will discuss general practice (GP) in Australia. We’ll explain what GPs do and how they contribute to the health and wellbeing of Australians. We’ll also shed some light on the most common area of medicine they practice and procedures they perform. So, let’s get started!

If you are looking for a GP in Cranbourne, we have a team of experienced GPs and doctors who can help you

General Practitioners are the specialists (yes! General Practice is a specialty in Australia) who treat people holistically and work as pillars of Australian healthcare system. A GP has the training to care for everyone irrespective of age gender etc. and can provide treatment tailored to their need. GPs usually have a broad range of knowledge and are capable of treating most medical conditions. They also provide preventative health care to their patients. GPs are often the first people to contact (primary healthcare provider) for health concerns in Australia.

Some of the services that GPs offer include:

– General medical concerns

– Treatment for illnesses and injuries

– Prescription of medication

– Providing medical certificates

– Referral to specialists or other health professionals

– Diagnosis and treatment of medical condition

– Diagnosis and management of mental health conditions

– Mens Health

– Womens health

– Childrens health

– Skin conditions

Skin cancer diagnosis and managment

– Immunizations

– Health promotion and education.’

It is important to have a GP that you feel comfortable with and understand your health needs. GPs often work with specialists to provide coordinated care for their patients. If you need to see a specialist, your GP can refer you. GPs in Australia may also perform medical tests and procedures. These tests and procedures can help diagnose health conditions or monitor treatment progress.

What Is a Bulk-Billing Doctor?

A bulk billing practice is where all the doctors bulk bill majority of consultations. Which means that there is no payment made by the patients rather the claims are directly sent to Medicare. This way patients just walk in and out without having to worry about making a payment.

Some of the most common tests and procedures that GPs perform include:

– Health check ups

– Heart health checks

– Pap smears

– Urinalysis

– Ear syringing

– Spirometry (lung function test)

– ECGs (heart function test)

– Skin lesion biopsies and removal

– Injections (including vaccinations)

– Fracture immobilization by plastering

Iron Infusions

– Implanon insertion and removal

– Suturing of cuts and lacerations.

Australia has a world-class healthcare system and General practitioner doctors play an integral part in it.

General Practitioners are the first point of contact for many Australians when they need medical care. They thus provide a more personalized experience than other types of specialists such as rheumatologists, cardiologists etc., who tend only to have a narrow focus on their respective field’s rather than taking a holistic approach like GP practices do. At Cranbourne Medical and Skin Clinic, all our doctors are VR(specialist) GPs who sincerely care about their patient and dedicated to make a difference to your health and wellbeing. It is worth mentioning that at Cranbourne Medical and Skin Clinic we bulk bill patients who hold a valid Medicare card. Should you need to know more about any of this, please feel free to contact us.
