OneHealth offers a comprehensive wellness check for both men and women. An initial one hour appointment is made with the practice nurse, who gathers diagnostic information and undertakes preliminary tests including ECG and spirometry. This is followed, a week later, by an hour-long appointment with the doctor who provides a full report and recommendations.
This service is for enrolled patients but may be extended to non- enrolled patients in certain circumstances. Please enquire at our reception.
Other wellness checks include:
- Extended Baby’s 6 week Check: This is a half hour GP appointment that is booked prior to your baby’s 6 week immunisations. The check is a focus on feeding, sleeping, colic, reflux, dentition, issues of the newborn and early parenting as well as the six week physical examination. Fee: $35.00
- 15 month Check: This is a critical developmental stage to monitor your child’s progress with respect to sight, hearing, speech, nutrition, mobility, learning and to set future expectations of development. Only a single appointment is required, so no fee will be incurred.
- Teens Wellness Check: This is aimed at 13 – 14 year olds as we believe this is an important age for an assessment, as it is during this period that a variety of new health issues may arise. It is also an ideal opportunity to ensure your teenager is up to date with their immunisations and for them to build a good relationship with their doctor. This is a single appointment and normal consultation fees applies.
- Adult Screening Health Check: These are undertaken every 2-5 years, from 40 years of age, depending on individual health needs. Normal consultation fees apply.
