” 5 Tips for Taking Your Children to the Doctor”  St Francis Medical’s Tips for making Your Child’s visit to the GP Easier Taking your child to a doctor can be such a daunting experience for both parents and your little one! At St Francis, our team of caring reception, nursing staff and doctors understand & work equally hard to ensure families receive the best of care in a comfortable environment. Here’s our Top 5 Tips for helping your child’s visit to the GP easier (as shown on our Facebook Page)     Tip One: Help reduce any anxiety by visiting the surgery before your child’s appointment – usually a week before is a good time frame.. This way, children can familiarise themselves with the environment without the pressure of any procedures. They’ll also get to know some of the faces, so on their appointment day, things will be a little more familiar.Feel free to drop into our 7 day clinic any time with your child, and our team will be happy to greet your little one, and if it’s not too busy will also show you both around the practice.   Tip Two: Try to book an appointment that works with your child’s routine. Parents know best when...

Healthy Heart Day Report

Posted by on 4 Aug, 2014 in Find Us

  1st Annual “Healthy Heart Day” – until next year!     Thank you to everyone who came along! On Saturday August 2nd, we held our very first “Healthy Heart Day”. Our plans were to devote some hours on the weekend to:   ♥      Help educate the local community on the growing impact of heart disease ♥     Offer FREE health checks – which included blood pressure monitoring and blood cholesterol checks ♥     Give everyone the chance to meet our new team – at our new medical centre ♥     Give out a little healthy info – and a few balloons for the kids!   We would like to thank everyone who came along to meet us, and we hope you also enjoyed the day – and learnt a little about your own health too! Heart disease is such an overwhelming problem in Australia, so we think  a little extra information and assistance on days like our Health Heart Day might help local communities prevent growing statistics. For those looking for information on preventing heart problems or if you missed our Healthy Heart Day feel free to email us, call us on 9382 3334 or visit our Healthy Heart Day page.   See you again...
