Our Podiatrist is able to manage, diagnose and treat many different conditions that affect the feet.
South Gippsland Hospital currently provides access to podiatry services either via different Community Health funding streams or as a fee for service clinic.
The podiatry service at South Gippsland Hospital is able to assist with general nail care, diabetes foot assessment, biomechanical injuries, wound management, nail surgery and orthotic therapy, as well as equipment or aids if required, including orthotics (additional charge for orthotics occurs).
Our service is available to any patient requiring podiatric treatment over the age of 65 who has registered with MyAgedCare (https://www.myagedcare.gov.au) to receive subsidised services.
Any patients (<>65) with a chronic health condition or disability affecting their feet may also be eligible for a Team Care Arrangement (please speak to your GP).
Our podiatry service also offers affordable fee for service options if you are not eligible for funded subsidised services.
For further information, please phone the Community Health Centre between 9.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Thursday on 03 5683 9780.
