A “chronic medical condition” is one that has been, or is likely to be present for at least six months, including but not limited to Osteoarthritis, Diabetes, COPD, Cardiovascular Disease and Asthma. Chronic diseases are complex and if managed appropriately complications may be reduced and the burden on the patient and their families can improve.

Patients meeting this criteria are eligible for Medicare rebates to access subsidised visits in a calendar year from some allied health professionals on referral from their GP Ask your Doctor or one of our Practice Nurses about how better to manage your chronic conditions.
