Services

Comprehensive General Practice

Our doctors have had broad experience in metropolitan, regional and remote general practices and hospitals. This has enabled them to take a comprehensive and quality approach to all things general practice. Our doctors strive to remain up to date with the latest developments in medicine by a firm commitment to their own ongoing professional development assisting them to provide evidence based medicine.  

 Accident Clinic

For acute needs that you may have otherwise resulted in an Emergency Department visit, we offer a walk in service after our usual practice hours. During regular practice hours, our team will always aim to facilitate your care with one of our doctors, but this is not always possible. 

Some examples of the type of accident clinic visits include; Lacerations requiring suturing, undisplaced fractures requiring plastering, abdominal pain or early pregnancy bleeding - just to mention a few. We promise that if we are unable to definitively manage your acute issue and you require an additional hospital visit then

Launceston Medical Centre aims to provide comprehensive, quality and timely care utilising our onsite pathology, GP performed Ultrasound and a nearby X Ray facilities - which hopefully will soon be incorporated into Launceston Health Hub.

Immunisations

Whether it’s protecting your young child, for travelling overseas or for those over 65, The Launceston Medical Centre has a range of government funded vaccinations or others available for purchase at competitive prices.

Women's Health

A number of our General Practitioners at Launceston Medical Centre have special interests in health issues specific to women which occur throughout the various stages of their lives.

General Check Ups

We are much better at getting our car checked up than we are ourselves. Our practice likes to take a proactive approach to preventative medicine rather than a reactive approach as issues arise. Talk to your doctor about a check up relevant to your current stage in life.

Sexual Health

Having both male and female doctors available along with an onsite laboratory allows for a confidential and contemporary approach to all aspects of sexual health. Our General Practitioners work closely with the statewide sexual health service to provide comprehensive shared care for conditions such as HIV and other complex issues.

Travel Health

Dr. Muir Wilson and Dr. O’Keefe both love travelling and enjoy helping patients have a safe journey with appropriate education, immunisations and helping put together relevant ‘medical packs’ to minimise the impact of illness on their patients adventures

Children’s Health

We have designed a child friendly practice with a dedicated safe kids corner in the waiting room and a lounge nearby for parents to relax in reading a magazine whilst awaiting to see the doctor. Our practice understands the concerns of a parent concerned about their sick child and aims to minimise any potential barriers to seeing a doctor by bulk billing all children under 16 along with seeing them in a timely manor. 

 Occupational Medicine

Dr. Muir Wilson undertook an advanced skills posting during his training in occupational health working closely with Rio Tinto and BHP. He would like to continue his experience, offering dedicated services to all work related issues including medicals, preventative care, workers compensation and team based rehabilitation. This compliments the co-location of Australian Workforce Assessors at the Health Hub which brings wellness to the work place. More information on AWA can be found on their website. 

 Antenatal Care

All of our doctors are experienced in providing shared care in pre-pregnancy counselling, and a thorough antenatal shared care approach. Ideally, antenatal appointments are scheduled as a long consultation, to ensure that we can provide an extensive assessment for pregnant women.

At Launceston Medical Centre, we have an onsite point of care ultrasound which specific doctors are able to utilise. This provides additional information, with scans available onsite, something which is not usually available within other shared care settings. Please contact our reception team for more information about our Antenatal Care appointments.

Sports Medicine

Dr. Muir Wilson would like to offer sports people of all ages that may have injured themselves in weekend sporting pursuits a guaranteed appointment Monday afternoons. With imaging facilities nearby and the ability to plaster onsite fractures through to any other soft injury can be comprehensively managed.

Walk in Clinic

We provide a Walk in Clinic service for our patients between 6pm and 9pm every weeknight. While our GPs work through to 10pm, the last walk in appointment is at 9pm so we are able to offer assistance to emergency patients. 

Our Skin Cancer and Specialist doctor hours vary, often including weekends and early mornings to accomodate patients requirements. If you are unsure of the hours we offer, you can call the main reception line and be advised accordingly. 

Pathology
