Welcoming Dr Emmy Bauer to Partridge Street General Practice

General Practice – A Great Career

Dr Emmy Bauer will commence her specialist General Practice training with Partridge Street General Practice in 2016. She commenced her medical career in Bio-Medical Science and then moved into Health Sciences and Medicine, working with IMVS Pathology, Flinders Medical Centre, Royal Adelaide Hospital in the Emergency Department, and more recently at the Margaret Tobin Centre.She has special interests in General Practice and Emergency Medicine.

Partridge Street General Practice is an accredited General Practice and is further accredited by our Regional General Practice Training Provider GPEx.

This means that the GPs at Partridge Street General Practice are teaching the Doctors and Medical Students who will be the future of medicine in Australia. It’s a big responsibility and a privilege we take very seriously.

Teaching Practice of the Year

All of our doctors here at Partridge Street General Practice are fully qualified ‘Fellows’ holding a specialist qualification with either the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM) or both (3-4 years of full time study and 3 exams on top of an undergraduate university medical degree and supervised trainee ‘intern’ year in a hospital). This is our minimum specialist standard and we may have other qualifications and skills.

Our Fellows provide supervision and advice to our Registrars and you may find that they are called in to consult with the Registrar on your case. ‘Registrars’ are qualified doctors who have completed their hospital training and are now embarking on their General Practice training. Some may already have other qualifications in medical or other fields.
We also supervise and teach Medical Students from Flinders University. They are still studying to become doctors. All of us – Fellows, Registrars, and Medical Students – make up the Clinical Team here at Partridge Street General Practice with our excellent Practice Nurses. We all uphold the highest standards of privacy, confidentiality, professionalism, and clinical practice.

We look forward to having Dr Emmy Bauer as part of our growing Clinical Team and sharing her General Practice training journey with us.

Professional. Comprehensive. Empowering.

Put your Money where your Mouth is #LCHF #running

Using ‘bro’ makes you leaner and stronger

Partridge Street General Practice is all about Health not sickness, so I’m taking a week off for some rest and relaxation! I’ll be running the 10km Dolphin Run on my break while the rest of our Team will be here to Help You. Let’s see how #LCHF and #running go together! 🍳⚡️🏃

Run Nick, Run!

See The Team here:

Put up or shut up is a common call these days. We also ask people to put their money where their mouths are. Surely if it doesn’t work for them or they can’t show that it works, we shouldn’t do as they ask us to do. Putting my money where my mouth was in the past led to a lot of eating!

2003!

Let’s look at where I’ve come from here. This shows a weight of 96.7kg just after Christmas 2015. It also shows a DEXA scan previous to that (weight 93kg). Let’s see some exercise evidence before we get to the new scan!

winter morning runs hurt
afternoon runs are much better
running between thunderstorms is best
 

Luckily, no pictures exist of my time in the gym over the weekend. The interest may not be ready for the language I used upon meeting the heavy weights for the first time in a while. Even using the magic word – ‘bro’ – didn’t help. Enough stalling, where’s the July 2016 DEXA and weight?

 

you can see the weight loss
and here’s the lost fat you can’t see
That is 13kg down from Christmas 2015, with nearly half a kilo less visceral fat (fat that accumulates around the abdominal organs – important in the development of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes). This is with exercise and yes, a lot of the weight loss predates a formal ultra low carb diet, but I’m very heartened by these results. Let’s see how the next few weeks go!

Thanks to Adelaide Bodyscan for the DEXA imaging – feel free to head over there and see how you measure up (tell them I sent you!). If you liked this, check some previous #LCHF posts out here:

This week has seen an improvement in eating. The eggs are making a regular appearance at lunch and breakfast has not been missed. My cough has gone, energy is high and I’ve had some good runs and solid gym sessions. I’ve even run down some Pokemons!

So how’s it going? What’s happening with weight, waist, and fat? Well…

You’ll see next week!

PokemonGP (Technology and Nostalgia)

I have no idea what this is

Nostalgia. It’s a wonderful thing, a good feeling about something from the past. It comes from two Greek words, the words for ‘homecoming’ and ‘ache’. It’s very powerful. Nintendo have recently conquered the social media world with PokemonGO. They have taken the technology of Augmented Reality and multiplied it by the power of Nostalgia and added $7.5 BILLION to their net worth. Our politicians could learn a thing or two from that!

Moseley Square Glenelg – Pokemon trainers in the cold

What can GPs learn from this? People used to feel good about their family doctors. Their doctor knew them and their family and spoke to them and for them. That nostalgia is powerful too. 

Your GP

Partridge Street General Practice has recently improved our technology. We’ve upgraded our medical software and will soon be able to text our valued patients. You can contact us online and even book your appointment from your mobile phone anywhere in the world. OurGPs have access to the latest medical resources online. The future is here now

We’re nostalgic too. We remember when people trusted their family GP and that’s what we’re about at Partridge Street General Practice. Your GP and Your Practice. Come and catch us! Don’t miss out!

Return of the Carb (Week Three)

It’s been a tough week. My holidays finished and I returned to work, full of ideas and energy. However, plans rarely survive their first meeting with reality and some carbs crept back in…

My preciousssss….

My eggs sat in the fridge while I snuck away for a secret rendezvous with forbidden carbs. A few illicit meals later and the carbs had stolen my energy away. I fought back and vanquished the carbs with a little overeating…

not quite this bad…
As the end of the week approached, I got back into low carb mode, and gave myself a boost by getting back into some exercise. A run and 3 tonnes of weights later and I’m back on track!

The Run I Needed

I’m looking forward to the upcoming week (you can see previous weeks here and here) and this will be the week where the rubber hits the road. Yes, I will be posting some weight and body composition details! 

Big things are coming

We told you so: Ignoring primary care is never a good idea

Let’s spend the health dollar a little better.

Here’s a thought. Only those who have a FRACGP or FACRRM should be able to access the VR item numbers – which are
3, 23, 36, 44, 721, 723, 732, 900, 903, 2712, 2715, 2717, 2713, 597, 599 and all of the home/nursing home equivalents (5003 etc). Registrars may only access the VR numbers when in an accredited training program in accredited practices during training time. 10% of the savings from this to be paid via the PIP to teaching practices, 90% of savings to be put towards increasing the level B VRGP rebate.

What do you think?

#Youvebeentargeted

Last night’s undecided election results raise many questions – and doctors will say: we told you so.

Family doctors have made it very clear during the lead-up to the federal election that it’s crucial for governments to invest in primary care to keep Australians well and out of hospital.

But not only that, during the longest election campaign in Australia’s history, GPs around the country have had discussions with millions of patients about the future of their healthcare.

Looking at the outcome of the election night, it seems that voters have taken the message to the polling booths.

Wealth should not affect our health

The day after the federal election date was announced, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) launched the You’ve been targeted campaign, warning people about the looming higher out-of-pocket costs, which have already become a reality.

The aim of the campaign was not to increase health corporate profits or fill…
