South Yarra Clinic offer care plan consultations free of charge for Medicare Card holders. Care plans are given to patients with chronic conditions (which must be recorded for 6 months or more) such as; diabetes or chronic back pain. The patient is first seen by the doctor and the practice nurse then holds the consultation for around 30 minutes to devise the plan in more detail with the patient. A care plan entitles patients to 5 allied health visits per calendar year and depending on which provider the patient chooses to visit, they can be free of charge. Please call our friendly administration staff for more detail on care plans or book your initial consultation with the doctor here.
