The Practice

 

"Your Health is OUR Concern"

 

Tullamarine Complete Health Centre was established in Jan 2011 with our motto being "Your Health is OUR Concern" - meaning that YOU, the patient, is our first priority and everything else comes later. 

 

The clinic provides support services to several GP doctors who provide medical care to the community. Our team, consisting of the Reception/Admin staff and Nurses aim to provide professional support to the Doctors  to enable them to care for their patients. We pride ourselves in our professionalism and a true sense of caring for the health needs of each individual.

Some of the Doctors consulting at the Clinic are also medical educators involved in training the next genertion of General Practitioners. This is done in collaboration with  MCCC (Murray City Country Coast GP Training) and Melbourne University.

The practice is accredited by AGPAL according to current best practice and regulations to ensure best support is provided to the doctors who are consulting at the practice and providing medical care to their patients. 

The Doctors encourage consultations by appointments but welcome any who walk in without one. The practice is growing rapidly with new patients presenting every day!  If you are new to the practice too, then we Welcome You too!

Flu Vaccine

May 2022

This year the flu season has been more severe than in recent years due to the issues in relation to covid and lockdowns over the last two years.

It is important to prioritise the flu vaccine especially for those with chronic / serious medical conditions and those over age 65yrs.

As per the Health Department's regulations, many people are eligible for the vaccine at no cost at all. (See below for the criteria).

Please make an appointment (or just walk in at any time) to receive your vaccine.

Flu Vaccine is FREE for:

1. Pregnant Women
2. People 65yr or over
3. Aboriginal & TSI persons
4. People Medically at Risk (age 6mth and over)

Important Info:

a) Influenza, commonly known as the flu, spreads easily from person to person through infected droplets in the air and by hands

 

b) Flu vaccinations are the single most effective way of helping fight the spread of flu

 

c) Approximately 3,000 Australians die every year, either directly from the seasonal flu, complications due to the flu, or pneumonia

 

d) The flu vaccine does not contain any live virus therefore you cannot get flu from receiving the vaccine

 

e) Vaccines, like other medicines, can have side effects, however the majority of side effects are minor. Serious reactions to immunisation are very rare

 

f) Because the flu virus is constantly changing, vaccination is done every year with the vaccine also changing to target the various strains of the virus
