Our team of dedicated general practitioners and nurses work together to offer a number of different services depending on your specific healthcare needs.
A CST is a quick and simple procedure available to all women aged 25-74 who have ever been sexually active. The test looks at the health of your cervix and can identify the presence of a Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection, which can cause changes to the cells of your cervix and, in rare cases, cervical cancer. All of our GPs are available to perform CSTs.
The Implanon is a type of Long Acting and Reversible Contraceptive (LARC), a group of contraceptives growing in popularity due to their reliable nature and ease of use. Many of our GPs have experience in Implanon insertion and removal. Please let reception know when booking for this procedure and we can book you with the appropriate practitioner.
An Intra-Uterine Device (IUD) is another type of LARC growing in popularity. There are two different types of IUD – hormonal IUD (Mirena) and Copper IUD. Prior to insertion of an IUD, your will need to book a pre-insertion consultation with one of our GPs to discuss your general health and suitability for an IUD.
Your antenatal care provider may recommend seeing your GP for a checkup as early as 5-10 days after birth and again when your baby is 6 weeks old. Please let reception know you are booking in for a newborn check so that we can create a new patient file for your child.
Our GPs and nurses are available to help your child stay up-to-date with their vaccinations, following the National Immunisation Program Schedule. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have about your child’s development. The childhood vaccination schedule typically involves vaccinations at 6 weeks, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months and 4 years. Please let reception know you are booking you child in for vaccinations so that we can ensure there is enough time scheduled with both your GP and our nurse.
We are pleased to offer Liquid Nitrogen Therapy, or Cryotherapy, at Montrose Medical Practice. This will be performed by your GP and one of our nurses in our dedicated treatment room. Cryotherapy can be used to remove abnormal skin tissue, including warts and sun spots.
Our GPs and nurses can also offer minor surgeries at Montrose Medical Practice in our dedicated treatment room. These include, but are not limited to, laceration repair and skin lesion removal.
Your GP may recommend an iron infusion if you are found to be iron deficient or suffer from iron deficiency anemia. The procedure is a safe and effective way of rapidly correcting your low iron stores and relieving your symptoms and is especially useful for patients who have trouble tolerating oral iron supplements. Iron infusions can be done on-site in our treatment room with the help of our practice nurse.
At Montrose Medical Practice, we are able to offer audiometry assessment for both children and adults, using specialised equipment in our treatment room. If you have any concerns about your child’s hearing, please let your GP know as early assessment is vital to ensure they get the best opportunity to develop their language and communication skills.
An ECG (electrocardiogram) is a test that can detect heart problems by measuring the electrical activity of the heart as it contracts to show whether it is working normally. An ECG can be done through our pathology service, Douglas Hanly Moir, with a referral from your GP, or we also have the ability to perform ECGs in our treatment room.
