Our aim is to provide the best holistic and patient centred health care on the south coast. Team work and supporting each other are our strengths.

Our focus is very much centred on preventative health care, however, as we do not have access to a hospital in Bermagui, our team are used to dealing with all types of acute situations and often become the first port of call for our patients in an emergency.

National Immunisation Program Schedule changes

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

From the 1st of July 2018, The National Immunisation Program (NIP) schedule have implemented changes to the Childhood Immunisation Schedule to improve protection against meningococcal, pneumococcal and haemophilus influenzae type B diseases. The changes include:

  • At 12 months of age, children will receive a meningococcal ACWY vaccine (replacing meningococcal C vaccination);
  • At 18 months of age, children will receive the booster Hib vaccine dose, protecting against haemophilus influenzae type B (previously given as a combined vaccine with meningococcal C at 12 months)
  • At 2,4 and 12 months of age, children will receive a pneumococcal vaccine (instead of at 2, 4 and 6 months)

In addition, maternal pertussis (dTpa) vaccination for pregnant women has been listed on the NIP to guarantee its ongoing access and availability.
