Obstetric Shared Care

With Obstetric Shared Care, your GP provides most of your pregnancy care with minimal hospital visits required. If any complications develop during your pregnancy, your doctor will refer you back to the hospital for specialist care as required. Hospital doctors and midwives will care for you during labour and birth, and your GP provides the care after discharge from hospital for you and your baby. Several of the Crafter Health doctors are accredited to provide you with shared care: Dr Johanna Kilmartin, Dr Wendy Murchland and Dr Kerry Vlahos.

Chronic Disease Management

Crafter Health is committed to chronic disease management, and as part of our comprehensive approach, we offer health management plans for people with chronic conditions requiring an inter-disciplinary team approach, ensuring these patients have access to proactive and personalized healthcare.

In addition to this, our holistic chronic disease management program includes tailored health care plans, allied health referrals, and regular reviews by your GP. These gap-free consultations for health management plans extend to all our patients, providing an inclusive and accessible avenue for proactive health management.

To enquire about the Chronic Disease Management program, please speak to your regular doctor.

Flu Clinic

Each year Crafter Health runs dedicated “flu clinics”. These generally take place in April and May prior to the winter flu season.

Patients are seen by a doctor and nurse. Details of times and dates for the clinics will be posted on this website closer to the time or by phoning 8272 5533.

Flu vaccination is recommended annually for patients 65 years and over and in patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma and cardiac conditions. In these groups, the vaccine is provided at no cost to the patient through government funding. Patients in low-risk groups can receive the non-government funded flu vaccine which costs $20. The consultation in both cases is bulk-billed.
