Expert asthma advice at Eleanor Clinic!

Our registered nurse Amy is also a trained asthma educator. We are participating in an asthma project steered by the Royal Children’s Hospital. The aim is to improve the asthma care of our children here in Melbourne’s West.

RN Amy is a wizard in how to use all the different asthma puffers and inhalers. She’s so full of infectious enthusiasm that you may end up sad you didn’t make use of these devices sooner. If you have ongoing asthma issues or hay fever symptoms, now is the right time to speak to us about it and update your asthma management plan. You do have an asthma management plan, right? Right?

Thunderstorm asthma season is on the horizon.

Why do all of this? Simple: If your asthma and hay fever are well controlled you are far less likely to have an asthma attack. Which means you are far less likely to end up in the Emergency Department or admitted to hospital when what you really were looking forward to was a balmy evening by the sea. Best laid plans? Put them in place now.

So, if you and your doctor have decided your asthma is best treated with a preventer, then use it the right way! Which means at least daily – or twice a day, for some. Not sure if you really need your preventer? Your asthma treatment not working for you? Don’t just shrug it off. See your Eleanor Clinic doctor for an asthma check.

And then let us know down the track whether you preferred the evening at the beach over waiting in the Emergency Department. Because we sure do.

Free health assessment for patients aged 45-49 at Eleanor Clinic

Perhaps your healthy habits have lapsed while juggling a career and children, or you’d simply like to continue feeling fabulous well into your fourth decade and beyond.

This health assessment is a great government funded initiative which offers patients aged between 45 and 49 the opportunity to have a once-off free health assessment. Statistically, between the ages of 45 and 49, people have a good chance of showing signs of the development of chronic disease. The aim of the health assessment is to assist with the detection and prevention of chronic disease and to enable early intervention strategies to be commenced as appropriate.

Who is eligible?

People aged between 45 and 49 years old who have one or more known risk factors to developing a chronic disease. Some risk factors include:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • History of smoking
  • High alcohol consumption
  • Poor diet
  • Extra weight
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Family history of disease

If you believe that you fulfill any of the risk factors above, speak to your GP.

What’s involved in the health assessment?

Our practice nurse will consult with you for 30-45 minutes and take a thorough history, update your medical history, check your blood pressure, BMI and provide information and advice related to your identified risk factors and create a strategy for you to manage your health. Your GP will collaborate with yourself and the practice nurse to develop the strategy and arrange any appropriate tests or referrals if required. Please allow up to 1 hour for your appointment.

What costs are involved?

There is no out of pocket cost for this once-off health assessment. Medicare Australia covers the cost of this initiative.
