CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT PLAN
At your initial consultation we like to get to know you so that we can provide personalised advice. We collect information about your medical history, family history, your lifestyle habits and dietary pattern and, importantly, your current health and wellbeing goals. Education and other resources are then provided to assist with achieving your individual nutrition goals.
We build on the information addressed in the previous consultation and ensure that the strategies developed are achievable. The number of review sessions is determined by personal needs and motivational level.
More time is required when there are a few concerns to be addressed, especially if it is also the first consultation.
The Extended Consultation also provides the time required if you are wishing to come in with a friend for health goals such as weight loss.
Chronic Disease Management Plans, which are issued by the GP, are bulk billed with no gap fee. Each session is approximately 30 minutes.
