Did you know you can have a consultation with your GP by telephone and video (TELEHEALTH)?

Did you know you can have a consultation with your GP by telephone and video (TELEHEALTH)?

Since April our patients have valued the support our GPs have been giving them by telephone and video consultations. The recent outbreak of Coronavirus cases in South Brisbane / Logan means these are even more helpful for  our patients.

We  are able to manage many patient concerns  using telehealth and reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus within the community.

Parents of children who have been unwell with minor respiratory or viral symptoms have found these provide easy to access advice and support from their family doctors.

We have been able to help many of our patients who just need a new prescription, referral or have a simple problem that does not require an examination. These are ideally suited to telephone or video appointments, and mean patients can stay safe without the need to travel to see their doctor.

If you are worried  about COVID-19 we can usually arrange testing without the  need for you to attend the Queensland Health Fever Clinics. After a consultation by telephone we  can send a pathology request direct to the pathology providers and you can go straight to  the drive through (or pathology clinic)  and stay safe in their own car.

Not everything can be managed on the telephone or video. Sometimes it is still necessary for us to see patients face to face. We have taken many steps to minimise the risk of infection to our patients and are able to still see patients face to face safely when necessary after careful assessment.

So far we have been  able to  support our patients through this challenging time, and have been bulk billing these telephone and video consultations for Medicare eligible patients. Patients who have not been seen at a clinic no longer receive Medicare rebates for telehealth. We welcome these patients but have been forced to charge a private fee.

Reydon Street Medical Centre is moving on 14 February 2022

Reydon Street Medical Centre has a long history of providing high quality health care from trusted doctors from 2 Reydon Street on the corner of Newnham Road and Reydon Street in Upper Mt Gravatt.

The current health crisis means that it is no longer sustainable to continue this tradition from its original premises. To ensure we are more resilient and remain able to provide continuity of care to our patients in the face of sickness or furlough leave we need to be part of a larger organisation.

The great news is the legacy will continue and on 14 February 2022 Reydon Street Medical Centre will join the existing Holland Park General Practice at 1173 Logan Rd, Holland Park. This is part of the IPN Medical Centres network and is located just five minutes from our building.

We intend to provide the same high quality care from doctors you know and trust from more appropriate premises. You should also see the same friendly staff to look after you at the front desk.

Continuity of care and the security of our patient records is our priority. Patients records will be transferred automatically, so your doctor can continue to access them. Given the Holland Park General Practice is part of the IPN Medical Centres network, you can be assured that your health records and personal information will remain safe and secure.

We will continue to book appointments with your chosen doctor, but from Monday 14 February 2022 onwards, all existing and future appointments will take place at Holland Park General Practice.

We look forward to continuing to serve our patients from our new home.
