Our unique model of integrated care
The Integrated Breast Health Clinic brings together a multidisciplinary team in a unique ‘rapid access’ model, providing patients with fast and easy access to breast physicians, breast surgeons, plastic & reconstructive surgeons, breast care nurses, breast radiologists and pathologists, all at the same location.
The Integrated Breast Health Clinic assesses all breast conditions that cause concern for patients.
What to expect on your first visit
You will see a breast physician who has specialist breast care expertise. We ask that you allow up to three hours for a full assessment, which includes on-site imaging with a dedicated breast radiologist if necessary.
You can expect to receive preliminary test results from your breast physician during this first visit and understand if there are any abnormalities at this stage. If required, the breast physician can fast-track a referral to one of our breast surgeons.
To be assessed at the clinic, you can either self-refer or ask your GP for a referral. In both cases, we will keep your GP informed about your medical condition and ongoing management.
The fee for a routine breast health assessment is $175 – a Medicare rebate of $113.30 can be claimed. If a fast-track referral to a breast surgeon is required, the initial consultation with the surgeon is included at no extra cost to the patient.
Our allied imaging provider offers bulk-billing for ultrasounds. The fee for a mammogram is $274.30 of which $174.30 can be claimed back from Medicare. In rare instances, there may be further radiology and/or pathology costs if your particular circumstances require more complex diagnostic tests.
