Psychology intervention is designed to focus on prevention, address health disparities, aim to reduce psychological distress, and enhance and promote psychological wellbeing in all populations. Speak to your general practitioner if you think you could benefit from this service.
The role of our dietitian is to collect organise and assess data relating to your health and nutritional status. You can use this service, with or without metabolic disorder.
The dietitian aims to provide you with an evidence-based education by communicating information, advice and professional opinion.
Going to see a dietitian is really all about getting assistance with the management of centred nutrition. They can assist you by planning appropriate food choices and menus, educating you on your individual nutritional needs and ways of accessing and preparing food. To start planning, implementing and evaluating nutrition programs, please speak with your doctor about booking an appointment with the dietitian.
Our Exercise Physiologist
Our exercise physiologist is a physical activity and exercise specialist who can play an integral part in the prevention and management of chronic disease. They will provide you with an assessment and individualised program to suit your medical conditions, goals and lifestyle. They will ensure that your treatment is clinically sound, safe, appropriate and caters for all functional levels and capacities. Education, advice and support for health, exercise and lifestyle are all part of the exercise physiology service. Exercise has been scientifically proven to prevent and manage many chronic conditions, reduce falls rates, and improve functional ability and wellbeing.
The exercise physiologist also offers rehabilitation services following an injury, surgery or during recovery to restore functional capacity, build strength and flexibility, and prevent further injury. For further details, please speak with your doctor or book an appointment for a consultation with the exercise physiologist.

Wedge Resection (Ingrown Toenail)
Ingrown toenails are painful and uncomfortable. The nail grows into the skin, causing inflammation and or infection. A wedge resection is a procedure where a section of ingrown nail is removed, altering the nail bed and preventing any nail regrowth in that section. Your nail will grow out narrower than it did before.
