NEW FEES for DRESSINGS and PROCEDURES
A number of years ago the Federal Government stopped support funding for general practices for wound management and nursing services.
Bridge Clinic can no longer provide these at no cost to patients, given the increasing cost of dressings, instruments, specialised products, compliance for accreditation, sterilisation and nursing time involved with these valued services.
For this reason a FACILITY FEE will apply from MONDAY 23 FEBRUARY 2015.
Premium Dressings - minimum $20 + consumables
(eg high quality dressing products, foams, forceps, glues, 20 minutes or more nurse time to treat)
Basic dressings (taking less than 20 minutes) will continue to be at no cost to the patient and provided in circumstances where the wound requires minimum intervention and care.
Dressings taking longer than 20 minutes - a minimum fee of $20 plus cost of consumables will apply.
Procedures - $30 (removals, insertions, emergency suturing)
Ear syringing fee is $15 as there is no appropriate Medicare rebate to cover this procedure.
Fees payable in addition to the cost of the GP consultation and apply to all patients.
Welcome to 2015!
Bridge Clinic has been in a state of change and upheaval for nearly 2 years as our building has changed and grown. We are very pleased to have completed the project now and look forward to welcoming all of our patients into the new surroundings in each of our waiting areas. We have been using our new nursing, emergency and ambulance areas for some time now and hope that your experience as a patient has been good in these new surroundings.
As always, we welcome your feedback and comments and look forward to providing you with great health care services. A final thank you to everyone, staff and patients, for being patient during this process.
We wish everyone a healthy 2015!
