Yarra Medical Acknowledges the Traditional Land Owners of the City of Yarra

Yarra Medical welcomes all patients who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders. The Wurundjeri-willam people of the Kulin Nation are the traditional owners of the land that is now known as the City of Yarra. Their relationship with the land extends back tens of thousands of years to when their creator spirit ‘Bunjil’ formed their people, the land and all living things.

Medicare Health Assessment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People

The aim of this MBS health assessment item is to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people receive primary health care matched to their needs, by encouraging early detection, diagnosis and intervention for common and treatable conditions that cause morbidity and early mortality. This health assessment is an annual service and there is no cost to the patient if they hold a valid Medicare Card. Please call reception to request this assessment.

The comprehensive assement involves an initial 40min appointment with the nurse then a 20min appointment with your regular GP. Most patients will also require a followup appointment approximately one week later to disucss any test results that may have been ordered.
