Coughs, colds and other self limiting viral infections are common among children, and our team provides evaluation and management of these conditions, including over the counter and prescription medication management.

At Enriching Health Medical, we believe that immunisations are a critical component of preventive care. Our practice provides all routine childhood vaccines, including the influenza vaccine for children under 5 years old, and we encourage parents to ask questions so that you are fully informed. We understand that children can often experience anxiety and distress when it comes to immunisations. Please be assured that our doctors and nurses are trained to manage these situations to minimise distress.

We also can provide advice around additional vaccinations that are worthy of consideration but are not yet part of the government funded vaccination program, such as meningococcal b.
