Flu vaccines 2017 – We still have influenza vaccinations available. Please phone the surgery in late April to make an appointment.
Doctor Changes – Junction Street Family Practice are pleased to announce we’ll have a new female doctor commencing work in the practice on February 8. Dr Clarissa Martin has completed her hospital training and will be commencing her training to specialise as a GP at the practice. Dr Martin will be available Monday-Friday and welcomes new patients. She will be working in the practice until at least February 2018.
Dr Boyages will also be remaining in the practice part time as he completes his GP training obligations elsewhere. He will be available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
After many years of long service Dr Simes will be reducing his hours to 2 days per week. Dr Boyages, Dr Martin or a number of other doctors in the practice will be more than willing and able to see you on the days Dr Simes is not here.
After Hours – At Junction Street Family Practice we believe it is important there is a GP available to take care of you at all times. This is why we have a system in place to provide care 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. Through the week one of our GP’s will be on the end of the phone if you need assistance. Over the weekend we share your care with six other local practices who will liaise with us after the weekend about your care. Please call the surgery where a message will inform you how to contact the after hours service.
Preventative Health – We believe preventing illness and chronic disease is just as important as treating your immediate medical problems. With this in mind we now offer a range of preventative health checks, where we can monitor your heart. lung and/or circulation health. We also offer a comprehensive medical assessment for those of you who are approaching 50. Please ask our staff to book you in for whichever tests are relevant to you and to find out more information.
