The My Health Record (MHR) is becoming “opt-out”

The MHR is a digital summary of a patient’s medical record that can be shared securely online between the patient and the healthcare providers that they visit. If you are happy to have a MHR automatically created by the Government, you don’t need to do anything. If you want to opt-out, you need to do so between 16 July and 15 October 2018.

State-of-the-art ear wax micro-suction machine

Ear wax is an important part of a normal functioning ear – the ear wax (called cerumen) is designed to trap dirt and dust, and is supposed to migrate out of the ear canal to ‘self-clean’ the ear. As many of our patients know, this self-cleaning mechanism doesn’t always work as well as we’d like it too!

Blackburn Clinic now offers safer and cleaner removal of ear wax build-up, using a state-of-the-art micro-suction machine. CLICK THE PHOTO ABOVE for more information.
