Providing better care...Promoting better health

 

Red Nose Day is Friday 30th June

Visit Narooma Lighthouse Surgery

Our aim is to provide the best holistic and patient centred health care on the south coast. Team work and supporting each other is our strength.

Our focus is very much centred on preventative health care, however, as we do not have access to a hospital in Narooma, our team are used to dealing with all types of acute situations and often become the first port of call for our patients in an emergency.

Call us on 02 4476 2999 to make an appointment.

Patient Support

We encourage patients to participate in decisions about their health care. Our GPs value patient input in providing care based on individual needs. We offer interpreter services, patient transport, tax & medical subsidies.

Statement regarding Dr Schmaman

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dr Gudrun Muller-Grotjan and Jane Taylor, owners of Lighthouse Surgery and Bermagui Medical Centre would like to thank the community of Narooma and Bermagui for their support over many years.

The Lighthouse Surgery Narooma and the Bermagui Medical Centre have always worked under the highest ethical and professional standards and have been and always will be committed to caring for our patients and community.

We acknowledge that the recent news of Dr Schmaman’s performance is deeply disturbing and distressing to our community as it is to the doctors and staff of Lighthouse and Bermagui Surgery itself.

We will endeavour a smooth transition of all of Dr Schmaman’s patients to other practitioners and will more than ever commit to providing the highest level of medical care to Narooma and Bermagui.

Whooping cough immunisation

By | Immunisation | No Comments

Whooping Cough (pertussis) is an extremely contagious respiratory infection which causes uncontrolled coughing and vomiting and can be particularly dangerous for babies under the age of 12 months.

Whooping cough is spread through respiratory droplets, which can be transmitted in the air through coughing and sneezing, or from close contact with an infected person. In a household where someone has whooping cough, an estimated 80-90% of the non-immunised contacts of that person will acquire whooping cough.

A history of having this disease does not mean life-long immunity, therefore vaccination is still necessary. Whooping cough vaccination is available for free to children through the National Immunisation Program Schedule and to pregnant women in their third trimester (preferably at 28 weeks) and is available at the surgery. Family members and people who have close contact with babies in the first weeks of life are recommended to have a whooping cough vaccine 2 weeks before having contact with the baby – this is available on prescription from a doctor.
