To help you live your best life, Springs Medical provides specialised clinics offering you excellent medical care close to home. We have a wide range of specialised clinics including:
A focus on preventative health, through cancer screening programs, skin checks and immunisation services, as well as quality wellness management has been shown to contribute to an improvement in physical and mental health, and may significantly improve overall quality of life.
To ensure you have access to the best possible care locally, the GPs, nurses and allied health professionals who run our clinics at Springs Medical have a special interest and are experienced in that particular area, usually having gained higher qualifications or undergone further professional training. This is particularly useful for patients with ongoing health conditions, such as allergies, diabetes and heart or breathing issues.
Springs Medical now also offers Bulk Billed Health Assessments for people aged 45 to 49 and for people aged 75 and over. At your Health Assessment Clinic appointment, you will receive a full health check from a Springs Medical nurse and GP.
If your assessment raises any potential health issues, your GP may refer you to a specialist consultant, or to one of our Springs Medical specialised clinics.
Even if you are normally well, it’s important to visit your GP regularly for assessment and monitoring. Regular visits may identify possible health changes early and allow your GP time to provide you with information about issues relevant to your age group and lifestyle.
Springs Medical GP, Dr Meg Jordan, who sees patients in our Women’s Wellness Clinic, previously worked in a Melbourne women’s health clinic before joining the Springs Medical team. She has completed extra training and education in women’s health and recently received accreditation for IUD insertion.
‘IUDs are a good, long-term form of contraception for women who can’t tolerate the pill or who have heavy or painful periods,’ she says.
Meg also completed extra training with hospital Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) specialists and sees patients at our Ear Wellness Clinic offered at our Daylesford practice. ‘This clinic uses an operational microscope and an ear micro-suction device and allows us to visualise the ear and is safer than ear washouts because it reduces the risk of perforation of the ear drum or infection.’
Meg says Spring Medical’s specialised clinics allow patients to be seen by a doctor and nurse best suited to their needs. In most cases, patients can book an appointment either online or with reception. Providing services locally often reduces wait times and overall costs for patients.
