New Year. New You!

Dr Ali Waddell

Book in here – see you soon! 

Welcoming Dr Ali Waddell to Partridge Street General Practice!

Partridge Street General Practice is very happy to welcome Dr Ali Waddell to Our Team!

Dr Ali is one of our two Senior GP Registrars. She completed her undergraduate study at the University of Adelaide and went on to work in rural Victoria completing terms in Obstetrics, Gynaecology, and Emergency. Her experience even includes time in East Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory!

Dr Ali enjoys discussing General and Preventative Health, with a particular focus on Family Medicine, Women’s Health, and Paediatrics. Outside of this, she enjoys relaxing with family and friends and enjoying our beautiful beaches.

 

Partridge Street General Practice is an accredited General Practice and is further accredited by our Regional General Practice Training Provider GPEx and our local Medical School at Flinders University.

 

 

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.

 

 

Award Winning Responsibility!

 
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) or are studying towards these qualifications. 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 Ali Waddell as part of our growing Clinical Team and sharing her General Practice training journey with us.

Dr Gareth completed his undergraduate medical studies in Auckland and all of his post-graduate training has been in Adelaide. His medical areas of interest include:

  • chronic disease management

Outside of work Dr Gareth enjoys cycling, skiing, and photography.

 

 

dr-gareth-boucher-cycling

 

He is a GP Palliative Shared Care Provider, as are Dr Tellis and Dr Mouktaroudis. We’ll let Dr Gareth explain this:

 

 

What is palliative care?

 
Palliative care is holistic care of people with life-limiting illnesses.  Holistic care means we focus on them, not their illness!

 

Their goals and ambitions

Their mental, physical, and spiritual well-being

Their symptoms

Their dignity

 

We provide care in the community and co-ordinate service providers. We support patients and their families to maintain quality of life and achieve the outcomes important to them.

 

 

The Team at Partridge Street General Practice is able to help you and your family with any Palliative Care needs.

 

 

Partridge Street General Practice is an accredited General Practice and is further accredited by our Regional General Practice Training Provider GPEx and our local Medical School at Flinders University.

 



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.

Sunny Glenelg

It’s also easy to focus on the challenges of being a GP in Australia at the moment. Medicare rebates are frozen, the system is not perfect, politicians and big business seem to have GPs in their sights, and our patients still have high expectations of us. Where there are challenges there are opportunities and I think that GPs can and will step up to find solutions and thrive. 

Beachside!

Service with a Smile

Why do Men taking Viagra get More Skin Cancers?


Men who use Viagra seem to have a higher incidence of skin cancer! Why?

Have a look here

At Partridge Street General Practice we believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and Australia has the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. How can we help you?

Firstly, be SUNSMART. 

– stay more in the shade

– wear a protective hat (I like the Chappell style broad brimmed cricket hat)

– cover up, long sleeved loose fitting clothing keeps you cool and keeps you safe

– sunglasses (also keep you cool 😎)

– sunscreen (SPF>30, re-apply every 2 hrs)

– limit your time in the sun (is there an app for that?)


Skin cancers can be split into two main groups, melanoma skin cancers (MSC) and non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC).  If you have a close family member with melanoma, or you’ve had a past melanoma, you’re at increased risk of melanoma. If you’ve had non-melanoma skin cancer before the age of 40, you’re at increased risk of melanoma. However, you’re far more likely to have NMSC than melanoma and these are the NMSC risk factors:

– fair complexion

– you burn rather than tan

– light eye colour

– light or red hair

– over 40 years old

– male

– multiple solar keratoses

– high levels of ultraviolet exposure

– previous NMSC (60% of those diagnosed with NMSC will have another within 3 years)

– immunosuppression

So we’ve covered prevention – what next? If you’re in one of the risk groups above or if you’ve got an area of skin you’re concerned about, check it out and write it down. 


Then see Dr Nick Mouktaroudis here at Partridge Street General Practice for a comprehensive skin check and treatment plan.
