Travel Health Warner

Embarking on an overseas journey can open doors to exciting adventures. However, it’s vital to bear in mind that travelling may introduce you to potential health hazards. Your well-being lies within your control, and by taking proactive measures, you can mitigate the risk of ailments that might disrupt your journey or potentially lead to severe complications.

At Warner Lakes Family Practice, we specialise in travel health services. Whether you’re a resident, work within Brisbane, or visit frequently, our dedicated team of GPs are here to guide you through the necessary health preparations for your travels.

We understand the importance of travel health and have streamlined our service to ensure maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Our doctors will provide you with insights on how to evade infectious diseases you may encounter while abroad. This may include:

Some countries still grapple with high infection rates from diseases that are uncommon in Australia, thanks to our routine childhood vaccination. If you were born overseas and plan on visiting friends and family there, it’s advisable to consult with our doctors regarding any necessary immunisations. Your immunity to certain diseases may have altered or lessened over time.
Our travel vaccination clinic in Warner also advises considering immunisations that are now standard in Australia if you’re travelling to areas where these diseases are prevalent.
Reach out to us at Warner Lakes Family Practice well in advance before your departure. Your health is your wealth, especially when you’re away from home.

It’s noteworthy that Influenza is the most common disease preventable by vaccination that travellers often catch.

While you’re travelling overseas, the probability of encountering these diseases may increase. Moreover, travellers can inadvertently import these diseases back into Australia, potentially causing disease outbreaks. Hence, ensuring complete immunisation before travelling is a crucial step towards safeguarding your health and the health of those around you.

Education and Advice

Our team specialises in travel medicine, equipped with up-to-date, country-specific information about potential travel threats and diseases. We provide advice tailored to your itinerary, regions you’ll visit, and your individual health status.

Medication

Our travel health experts prescribe medications for various travel-related illnesses such as malaria, schistosomiasis, travellers’ diarrhoea, jetlag, allergies, and more. We also prescribe preventive measures for conditions like Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) and malaria, depending on your health status and itinerary.

Post Travel Support

For any post-travel health complications, our travel health Warner clinic offers consultations and medical support. With vast experience in managing post-travel illness, we conduct pathology tests to identify the illness type, and if needed, refer you to a suitable specialist for further treatment and monitoring.

We provide an extensive medical program for corporate travellers, assessing the health of workers before deployment and upon return to Australia. This includes altitude, fitness for deployment, overseas visa medicals, and post-travel medicals. We also offer OGUK, Commercial and Recreational Dive Medicals, and AMSA Medicals.

CHANGE TO CONSULTATION FEES AS OF 1ST JANUARY 2022

Starting from 1st January 2022, we will be introducing more Mixed-Billing for your consultations. As such, a small gap fee will likely be payable, but we are aiming to keep your overall ‘out of pocked’ expense to a minimum.  Weekend fees will remain the same as our 2021 pricing.

Our Practices have been primarily Bulk-Billing since their inception.  However due to increased costs associated with delivering services, this transition is necessary to continue providing you and your family quality healthcare.

Bridgeman Family Practice and Warner Lakes Family Practice have chosen to continue to subsidise your healthcare by setting our fees lower than the current recommended fee schedule set by the Medical Association of Australia (AMA).

We accept EFTPOS, credit cards and cash for your convenience. Please make sure you link your bank details with your Medicare card in order for the rebate to be deposited into your account within 48 hours. We will lodge the claims online after your consult for your convenience.

To help us reduce your waiting time for appointments, we kindly ask that you discuss only one item with your GP during a standard 15 minute appointment.  If you need to address more than one issue, please book a longer appointment with your GP.

Please note: Bulk-billing services will continue for patients aged 16 years and under; and all valid Concession Card holders*.  Please show your current concession card at each appointment.
