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…

Medicine reviews are proving good for patients and doctors

It’s just over 12 months since we announced the appointment of our clinical pharmacist Jo McMahon. The clinical results and feedback from our clinical team and our patients are impressive.

“I have checked blood results and calculated renal function for hundreds of medicines to ensure that the dose is correct. Patients discharged from hospital who need to understand changes that have been made to their prescribed medicines can be followed up and I can liaise with the patient’s community pharmacy if required.”

A warm Spring welcome to Dr Bronwyn Henderson

As we greet these first days of Spring, it seems fitting to be extending a warm welcome to Dr Bronwyn Henderson. Dr Henderson is the newest member of our practice GP team taking our tally of GPs joining us since August 2019, to six . This team of six now comprises doctors Nadira Khan, Shenoa Holliday, Gareth Carroll, Polina Smerdova, Lisa Brown and Bronwyn Henderson.

Bronwyn started her clinical career in 2005 as an intensive care paramedic and clinical education tutor in Auckland. Since 2017 she  has been a resident medical officer and an emergency department registrar at Wollongong and Shoalhaven hospitals. In March Bronwyn was appointed an occasional locum emergency department (ED) registrar at Moruya and Batemans Bay Hospitals.

Dr Henderson is now consulting Tuesday to Thursday at our Moruya practice.
