Elmore Medical Practice is part of the St Anthony Family Medical Practice group and promotes preventative medicine for the health and wellbeing of its community. It also provides a range of high-quality services to around 4,000 people in the surrounding district.
These services include ECGs, cervical screening tests, health assessments, minor operations and procedures, pathology, MoleMap, travel medicine, spirometry, mental health and a range of allied health services and community support groups.
Registrars can advance their clinical and procedural skills by assisting with these procedures, together with 24 hour blood pressure and holter monitoring, using the Doppler Ultrasound and Laser machine and paediatric oximeter, electronic ear stringing as well as wound suturing and dressing. The practice is also registered for yellow fever and Q fever vaccinations. A team of highly-skilled practice nurses assist with procedures, immunisations and also prepare health assessment plans for chronic disease management.

This technology can take high-definition photographs of suspicious skin conditions or lesions, including moles, scars and ulcers, enabling doctors to efficiently monitor, assess and remove these lesions where necessary.
