Rozelle Total Health

We are now accepting online bookings for the COVID-19 vaccination via HotDoc. If you are eligible for Phase 1b of the rollout you can now book your appointment online here.  If you are unsure of your eligibility please use this eligibility checker before booking your appointment.
 
Please note: we have a very limited number of doses being supplied to us at this stage and appointments will only become available when stock is on hand. This will avoid last minute cancellations.  If you can not see any available apppointments when you try to book we suggest you try again weekly until you secure your dose.
  
We will be running early morning covax clinics fortnightly on a Thursday.  These are outside of usual hours so we can maintain social distancing and ensure routine patient care is not disrupted. Your second dose will be administered on a Saturday afternoon 12 weeks after your first. Please ensure you book this second appointment as your first dose appointment will not be confirmed until you have booked your second.  Once booked you will receive an email with important information about your visit and a link to your online consent form. You are required to complete this.

What causes abdominal bloating?

Contrary to what many people believe, bloating is not necessarily due to too much gas in the stomach. Researchers have performed studies on patients who feel bloated using CT scans, and shown that they often do not have any more gas in the belly than people who have no symptoms. Excessive gas production probably plays a part, but does not explain the whole picture.

We are pleased to advise that Rozelle Total Health has been approved to deliver COVID vaccinations to our community. The rollout will be staged as per the Dept of Health and we will be starting with the phase 1b.   

Please note - We have not yet received any vaccination stock!  

We are busy planning how best to deliver the vaccine to you safely and quickly so please do not phone us at this stage regarding vaccination. We will notify you as soon as we are ready to take bookings.

While you are waiting - we suggest you take the time to inform yourself about the vaccination, and check your eligibility,  so you are ready to act when the time comes. 

If you wish to discuss your personal circumstances, or need help deciding what is right for you, we recommend booking an appointment with your GP.

To stay up to date please visit us here on the website or follow us on facebook

Government changes to MBS funding for telehealth came into effect on 1 October 2020.

Rozelle Total Health continues to offer care to our patients both face to face and via telehealth.  We are pleased to offer this choice so patients may elect to access care in the mode that best suits their circumstances.  There are some clinical settings where a face to face appointment may be required to complete the assessment.  There may also be circumstances where we request you do not attend a face to face appointment (eg you or your GP may be infectious) and you will be offered a telehealth consult. 

We are pleased to advise that medicare rebates remain available for telehealth consultations provided the patient has been seen in person at the practice at least once in the preceding 12 months.  Private fees are applicable to all consultation and we are not able to offer routine bulk billing.  The government requirement to bulk bill certain patients due to COVID has been removed and the payments to GPs for doing so have ceased.

We are a privately billing practice and the fees remain the same for both face to face and telehealth consultations. Payment is required on the day of service.  Where you start with a telehealth consult but are required to attend for a face to face review on the same day - you will only be charged once.

If you have any questions or concerns please get in touch with our service team.

Regards

Rozelle Total Health

 

 

 

Did you know?
Some changes have been made to patient eligibility for telehealth rebates.
 
The Government has stipulated that as of Monday 20 July, Medicare rebates for telehealth are only available if patients have been seen at the practice face to face at least once in the preceding 12 months.
To ensure our patients have a variety of options when choosing how to best access health care we will continue to offer both telehealth and face to face consultations. Medicare rebates are available for eligible patient appointments. If you are unsure about your eligibility for a rebate please phone our reception team to book.
If you have not been in in the past year you may still book a private telehealth appointment for your convenience (no rebate). You may elect to come and see us in person – this will make you eligible for telehealth for the next year.
Do not attend the clinic if you have a flu like illness - please call ahead to discuss your options if you develop symptoms prior to your appointment.
Please note that the COVID19 situation is rapidly changing and we need to respond in turn. Should the situation in NSW escalate we will need to revert back to telehealth across the board for all new appointments.
 
Now might be a good time to come in for that check up!

BIG CHANGES to prescriptions are taking effect in the coming weeks. Scripts will be delivered by ‘token’ to your email or mobile phone! Please make sure we have your TOTALLY up to date details here:
