 Consultations
  
Cygnet Family Practice aims to serve you by providing a caring, holistic, pro-active service model.
Ours is an innovative approach, using both general practitioner (GP) and a nurse practitioner (NP),  
working  together to provide optimum treatment.
The GP attends to your medical needs
and the NP your advanced nursing needs  
  
  
Our model of consulting combines the appropriate practitioner,
for the right reasons,
at the right time
 
To ensure that you are always seen on the day,  our 
Nurse Practitioner triages your care, treats your minor illnesses and injuries and further refers you to our doctor when needed.
 
The Nurse Practitioner prescribes medications,
provides repeat prescriptions, orders blood tests and 
x rays, and refers on to specialists or to hospitals.
 
When you register with us as a new patient, you will be booked with our Nurse Practitioner, Kerrie Duggan, for a comprehensive initial assessment. This appointment provides an opportunity to set up your medical record showing all allergies, medications, medical conditions and baseline observations such as blood pressure levels.
 
This appointment is comprehensive, lasts up to 40 minutes and is bulk billed.
 
The benefit for you in having a Nurse Practitioner appointment is that it includes extra time without personal cost to allow full discussion of your particular health care goals.
 
It also provides the time to get to know each other and to work together to ensure the best possible, focus on the patient need.
