Acute medicine is a cornerstone of general practice and all our doctors are skilled in assessing and managing acute medical conditions. In addition, the doctors manage patients in Mount Pleasant Hospital and have admitting rights to the hospital for patients who are not well enough to be managed at home.
Our main focus in general practice is on good preventative medicine. We firmly believe that prevention is always better than cure!
This is achieved through comprehensive health assessments. Enquire today about appropriate health assessments.
