For everyone, we believe that having a usual GP or General Practice is central to each person’s care and recommend that people with any health issues that come to the attention of other health professionals should be advised to attend their usual GP or General Practice rather than a specialised service (ie a place not providing the holistic care a specialist GP would).   If  they say that they don’t have a usual GP or general practice, they should be helped to find one and to actually attend it. Call PartridgeGP on 82953200 or make an appointment online here.

If you are a great GP or a great Allied Health Professional, and you want to serve your clients or patients to the best of your ability, without worrying about all the non clinical things that get in your way, lets talk. Call Dr Nick Tellis on 8295 3200 and have a coffee and chat with us as to how PartridgeGP can help you to help others.

Vaccination – the best vaccine is the one in your arm

We all know about COVID. Let’s move on. Let’s move forward. The best vaccination for you is the one in your arm! This is voluntary. It’s not mandatory. If you don’t want it, or don’t think you need it, Australia is a free country. If you do want it, here is some simple information.

There are two vaccines available at the moment – Astra Zeneca, a viral vector vaccine, and Pfizer, an mRNA vaccine. Australia has a lot of Astra Zeneca and less Pfizer. PartridgeGP has Astra Zeneca.

Astra Zeneca:

Viral vector vaccine

2 doses

4-12 weeks apart (12 probably best BUT sooner is better – see above, the best vaccine is the one in your arm)

Clotting risk (low – probably less than 1 in 30000 and dropping as we exclude those at higher risk)

Generally well tolerated (over 20 million doses so far)

Get ASTRA here!

Now, many of you will want the Pfizer vaccine – this has been touted in the media extensively BUT

  • its less available, remember, the vaccine that works best is the one in your arm
  • speed is of the essence, you can see how fast lockdowns can occur
  • it has side effects, but, like Astra Zeneca, they are rare
  • its probably the same effectiveness as Astra Zeneca in the real world

GET PFIZER here!

England won’t win; but PartridgeGPs new PM will

Dr Nick Tellis was born in England. While I was born long after 1966, and moved to Australia many decades after 1966, everyone born in England knows the significance of that year. It’s the last time England won an international football tournament. They say past performance doesn’t predict future performance, but after 55 years, I think it might offer a pointer.

So, my prediction for this weekend’s Euro 2020 final? Italy will win.

My prediction for PartridgeGP is that we will be interviewing some awesome candidates for the position of Practice Manager over the next 2 weeks. Get in it to win it and apply here if you think you have what it takes. Don’t wait 55 years!

Blink

PartridgeGP is all about providing the best services and facilities to GPs, allied health professionals, and our staff, so we can serve our valued patients better. Anthony Prigent is not one of our patients but he has a story to tell as a patient, a survivor, and a man. He wrote a book…

Review
In the blink of an eye
Anthony Prigent





History is written by the winners, as the saying goes, but more accurately by the survivors. All of us have done things that could have gone bad. Sometimes there has been a near miss, as when I helped build a retaining wall and witnessed a truck tip rebar straight past a man’s head. Sometimes there has been an accident with no lasting harm. Some automotive adventures come to mind. Sadly, sometimes there is an accident and it doesn’t miss. There is no survivor and no learning. It is rare then to have an accident, for it not to miss, and for there to be a survivor. Rarer still for them to thrive and rarer again for them to learn and write a book. Such is history written and so do we learn everything can change in the blink of an eye.



Spoiler alert was a big phrase in 2019 when the only plagues were on the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Anthony has the big reveal pretty early on after setting the scene and anyone who has met him couldn’t fail to be aware of how things turned out. He had a workplace accident, a tragedy in the true sense of the word. You can see it coming but it’s no less shocking when it happens.



It’s a very Aussie, very personal book. There’s butcher talk, there’s beers, tears, strippers, and pool. Then travel, fights, music, and women. Then more travel, more beers, and more women. We get to know Anthony through the book as he finds himself and gets to where he is now. It’s not all beer and women, but you’ll need to read his book to fill in the blanks.



I enjoyed this book. Anthony’s a good genuine bloke and his voice shines through on every page. I look forward to hearing his musical talents and facing him over a beer and a pool table. In a year when many lost a bit and all of us needed some perspective, ‘In the Blink of an Eye’ has something to teach us all. Get it, get on it, read it, digest it, learn from it. As Charles Swindoll said, and Anthony Prigent lives, life is ten per cent what happens to us and ninety per cent how we react to it; we are in charge of our attitudes.

Read the book!

Telefarce

PartridgeGP has been providing safe services and facilities to our GPs, staff, allied health professionals and patients since the start of the pandemic. We led the way in using the phone – quick, easy, and effective – to achieve this. The Government eventually came to the party with some specific item numbers to rebate patients for the time spent with their specialist GPs. However, as the pandemic ramps up, and the Delta Variant causes lockdowns and restrictions nationwide, what does the government do?

Yes, you are correct. They have changed ALL of the item numbers, rewarding shorter consults, reducing rebates, and preferring video – which patients and GPs have declared by their choices over the last year that they don’t want. Here is a short video explaining what they have done:

They have developed a helpful 13 page document – of course there is no mention of the value of these rebates to the patient, and no explanatory notes to help GPs explain the insurers rules to patients – one day before these changes go live.

Nevertheless, PartridgeGP is here to help – and we will continue to serve our valued patients! PartridgeGP works with you to help you make your best health decisions, and we won’t back away from being your companion, guide, advisor, and sounding board through your health journey. We pride ourselves on great communication and we’re ready to share our professional skills and knowledge with you. This is only MORE important now, in the time of a global pandemic with a new vaccine on the horizon. The way forward is clear: make your appointment with us conveniently online right here – or call our friendly reception team on 82953200.

For everyone, we believe that having a usual GP or General Practice is central to each person’s care and recommend that people with any health issues that come to the attention of other health professionals should be advised to attend their usual GP or General Practice rather than a specialised service (ie a place not providing the holistic care a specialist GP would).   If  they say that they don’t have a usual GP or general practice, they should be helped to find one and to actually attend it. Call PartridgeGP on 82953200 or make an appointment online here.
