On 1st September we farewelled Dr Fred Heddle OAM, who died (at Victor Harbor) on 25th August, aged 104. Dr Heddle was a founding member of the Bridge Clinic Partnership and a GP in Murray Bridge for 50 years – an astonishing and (likely) unsurpassed record for service in general practice.
Read about Dr Heddle’s life in Murray Bridge as a GP and energetic community member in this obituary, prepared by Bridge Clinic.
Spring has finally arrived and we hope that you can start to enjoy the sunshine.

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.
