Self-Collected HPV Swabs

The Australian Government has announced that all women under the National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) are able to self-collect their own screening sample as of the 1st July 2022.

This change means that self-collection will be available to all women and people with a cervix under the NCSP and will no longer be restricted to under-screened or never-screened women.

This change is supported by evidence showing that HPV tests performed on self-collected vaginal samples are as safe and accurate as HPV tests performed by a clinician.

Self-collection allows women to use a simple swab, similar to a COVID swab, to take a screening sample themselves instead of having a traditional cervical screening test completed by a clinician.

By giving women the choice of how their screening is done, we are making the process easier, more comfortable and less invasive.

Self-collection is expected to improve overall screening participation rates, especially in under-screened populations including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women as well as culturally and linguistically diverse women and gender and sexually diverse people.

The self-collect tests will be accessed through health care providers, including GPs, ensuring these experts continue to play a critical role in supporting patients with cervical screening.

The National Cervical Screening Program promotes routine screening with cervical screening tests covered by Medicare every five years for women and people with a cervix between the ages of 25 and 74 years.

Please contact us on 8380 9145 to arrange an appointment if you are due or overdue for your cervical screening.

National Stroke Week

This week is National Stroke Week, strokes are Australia's second single greatest killer, with over 60,000 strokes occurring each year. National Stroke Week is used to bring awareness to an individual’s risk of having a stroke as well as what preventative steps can be taken.

Strokes attack the brain - the human control centre - changing lives in an instant. Injury to an area of your brain can impact how you think, behave, use words, swallow, see, feel, touch, and move your body. Stroke can happen to anyone of any age.

There are some stroke risk factors that you cannot do anything about, such as older age, being male, family history or already having a prior stroke. But for most Australians, you can reduce your risk and help prevent stroke by taking some simple steps:

1. Make time for a health check for stroke risk factors. i.e. high blood pressure, high cholesterol or type 2 diabetes.
2. Take charge of your own health and live a healthy lifestyle.

If you have any concerns or believe you may be at risk of a having stroke, please contact us at Virginia or Heritage Medical Centre to make an appointment with your GP.

Changes to our Billing Structure

From the 1st of July 2022, Virginia & Heritage Medical Centre will become Mixed Billing Practices.
Unfortunately, we are no longer able to sustain 100% bulk billing as the amount set by the Government does not cover the cost of providing a high-quality medical service.

Patients under the age of 16 and patients who hold a valid Pension Card, Concession Card, Healthcare Card or DVA Card will not incur any costs during weekdays Monday to Friday. For patients who do not hold any of the above listed cards there will be an out of pocket expensive for your consultation, excluding some appointments.

ALL consultations on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays will incur a full fee to offset higher staffing costs.

The fees charged by our practice reflect the cost of running an efficient practice that complies with the best medical practice, the requirements of various government agencies, and the standards imposed by Accreditation. All Fees are payable in full at the time of consultation.

Your Medicare rebate can be paid instantly into your cheque or savings account, so please ensure you have the relevant card with you when you visit and your have registered your banking details with Medicare. We will provide you with more information, updates along with our fee structure displayed in the Medical Centre and on our Website.

For more information about our fees, feel free to ask our reception staff.
Thank you for your understanding.
