Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander Health
We would like to acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional owners of the land on which the Nelson Plaza GP Superclinic is built – The Worimi. We recognise the strength, resilience, and capacity of Aboriginal people in this land, and we pay respect to the knowledge embedded forever within the Aboriginal Custodianship of Country.
The staff at Nelson Plaza Clinic are committed to providing culturally safe health care services and welcome all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to our clinic. All of our General Practitioner services are bulk billed for identified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
Many patients have difficult with weight loss. Some of our doctors run specific clinics that can assist you with your goals. Call reception on 02 4981 2555 to book an appointment.
Antenatal and Postnatal Care
We are fortunate at Nelson Plaza Clinic to have a midwife at the clinic who can participate in shared-care for pregnant patients with our experienced GPs. Several GPs have additional qualifications from the Royal Australian College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
Postnatal care is also important. Our midwife also has additional qualifications in lactation and breast feeding.
We can provide a range of minor procedures for patients if required.
Worker’s Compensation consultations are billed at WorkCover approved rates. These consultations will be directly billed to your insurance company if they have accepted liability and if you can provide ALL billing details (including claim number, name and address of insurance company) at the time of consultation. If we do not have these details you will have to pay the full amount and claim that from the insurance company.
