COVID Vaccination Update

Despite the many announcements and assurances from the government, the process for Australians to be vaccinated against COVID-19 remains confusing and has left everyone short on the details.

Queen Street Medical Centre is well prepared and ready to vaccinate but to date we have only been promised 50 doses of the COVID vaccine.

These will not be delivered until after Easter. We have planned our rollout of the COVID vaccine along the same lines as our flu vaccination clinics.

When supplies of the vaccine arrive, we will administer it according to the government queue. Dr Neil Starmer, Practice Partner

Introducing electronic prescriptions

We have introduced electronic prescriptions – you will still have the option to have a paper prescription, but electronic prescriptions are convenient, easy and efficient for you, your doctor and your pharmacist. Watch this video to learn more and follow the read more link for more information.

 

Meet our new GPs – Dr Neil Mackay and Dr Borna Das

A warm welcome to our new GP registrars – Dr Neil Mackay and Dr Borna Das, who joined our Moruya GP team on Monday, 1st February.

After four years training in orthopaedics in far north Queensland, Dr Mackay completed his first 12 months of the 18 month GP  registrar training programme in Pambula last year and joins us to complete his final training semester – Neil and his young family have decided to settle here in our local area. 

Dr Das has now embarked on her first six month GP training semester after recently working as a Senior Resident Medical Officer (SRMO) in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology department of Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital.

Queen Street Medical Centre is recognised as a leading, accredited GP training practice in NSW, attracting a record number of applications for this 2021 training year. Our GP registrars usually elect to complete at least 12 months of their 18 months training at our Moruya practice. Many of our former GP registrars have settled permanently in our local area and remain with our practice.

Thank you Dr James

This month marks a milestone for our Dr Peter James who is retiring on December 21st after nearly 40 years of dedicated, wonderful service to the health and wellbeing of our Eurobodalla community.

Peter spent his early GP years working in rural Queensland until moving to Brisbane to practice and later heading to Sylvania in Sydney. Peter finally settled with his family here on the South Coast where he worked for many years as a Visiting Medical Officer at Batemans Bay Hospital in addition to his GP consulting at Batemans Bay Medical Centre.

In 2014 Peter joined our Queen Street Medical Centre where he’s a much loved and highly regarded member of our GP team. Peter, we extend our deepest thanks and very best wishes to you for a healthy, relaxing and enjoyable retirement – it’s been a pleasure and priviledge to work with you and we’ll miss you greatly.

Feet in focus – avoiding long-term problems

Have you stopped to check your feet recently? We often take our hard-working feet for granted. Our registered nurse, Vivienne White asks “Have you considered how important your feet are to your well being and general health? Early detection and treatment can greatly reduce the chance of long term foot health issues.”

Our Foot Focus Clinic starts at Queen Street Medical Centre Mourya on 8th December. This special foot clinic is a new health initiative under our Better Health programmes and will be conducted by our qualified, registered nurse, Vivienne White. 

Check your skin – it could save your life

With Summer on our doorstep and Aussie skin cancer rates among the highest in the world, it’s time to put on the sun protection and a reminder to be checking our skin.

According to our skin cancer management GP Dr Thilan Walgamage, we need to be checking our skin every month “it’s not just a quick once over” he says “think of your skin like a road map – check head to toe and study your spots and moles and take notice of any changes. In the early stages of skin cancer development, you’re the one with the best chance to see changes”.

Thilan’s advice is that if you see something NEW, CHANGING or UNUSUAL get it checked by trained professional right away. It could be skin cancer. This is what you should look for…

Phase 1B of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout starts on March 22
