Hawkins Medical Clinic has a number of staff trained in Chronic Disease Management education, in particular diabetes, heart disease and asthma.
Appointments are currently offered at our branch clinic (Hawkins@Pinehall) at 10-12 Pinehall Avenue, Mount Gambier.
Our staff will explain how you can help to control or minimise the effects of your medical condition and will prepare a draft management plan for your doctor. You will subsequently see your doctor who will discuss your condition and the management plan. You will be provided with a copy to keep with you for your records.
Where other providers are involved with your medical care your doctor may seek your consent to send them a copy of your management plan encouraging them to participate in a team care arrangement.
