Practice Management Leadership Conference 2021

It was a pleasure to have attended our recent Practice Management leadership training conference last week. The conference gave our leadership team the opportunity to exchange views, share ideas and teach our leaders how to embark on their strengths to create team collaboration in decision making and creativity.

Changes to Practice Fees

From 28th December 2020, Gordon 7 Day Medical Centre will be transitioning to a mixed billing practice. A small fee is now being introduced to most consultations but we are aiming to keep your overall ‘out of pocket” expense to a minimum. 

We are conscious that some of our patients are unable to afford the fee; therefore we offer bulk billing to patients that hold a current pension or health care concession and children under the age of 16 years.

Please note: Bulk Billing is only available Monday – Friday and private fees will incur on weekends or public holidays for all patients.

Bookings can be made online via HotDocs:

Meningococcal B Vaccines Available

‘4CMenB’ is a meningococcal group B vaccine.

This vaccine is given to individuals from 2 months of age and older to help protect against disease caused by bacteria called Neisseria Meningitidis group B.

The B-strain of meningococcal disease has caused the most cases of the infection in New South Wales this year but a vaccine for the illness still isn’t eligible under the Immunisation Schedule.

NSW Health has revealed 15 of the 21 cases to date this year were meningococcal B.

It comes after NSW Health issued a warning this week encouraging the public to be aware of symptoms.
