We are delighted to welcome Dr Sandy Braiuka to the Mead Medical team. 

Sandy has enjoyed careers in many aspects of health care for over 30 years, including as a teacher, researcher, naturopath, kinesiologist and now as a Doctor.

She has a special interest in sexual health, paediatrics, mental health, palliative care and all aspects of women’s health including antenatal care and insertion and removal of mirenas and implanons. Her passion is integrative medicine and the exploration of the mind-body connection through mindfulness, meditation and preventative health care.

Outside of medicine, Sandy loves singing with the Gay and Lesbian choir and travelling to explore new places, cultures and food.

We are delighted to welcome Dr Sarah Colby to the Mead Medical team. 

After travelling the world for a year after high school, Sarah initially completed a degree in exercise and health science, specialising in exercise rehabilitation before moving into medicine at UWA.

She welcomed the opportunity to spend a year of medical school working in Kununurra devolving her skills in a different environment, where she was also able to enjoy the lifestyle of camping amongst the gorges, waterfalls and bushland.

Graduating in 2013, Sarah worked in many different areas of medicine and surgery in the hospitals around Perth before entering into general practice training.

Sarah was fortunate to have enjoyed six months at King Edward Memorial Hospital where she completed a Diploma in Women’s Health on the background of a keen interest in women’s health, antenatal care and sexual health.

Outside work, Sarah loves travelling, camping and participating in triathlons.

Having cared for the health and wellbeing of the residents of the City of Kalamunda for 60 years, we are now pleased to advise that as of 1st July 2018, Mead Medical will bulk bill consultations for all pension card holders. We hope this allows more pension card holders to access the high quality healthcare that we have, and will continue to provide, to all residents of the area.

 

Mead Medical’s Kalamunda Skin Clinic continues to expand! We’re excited to announce that Dr Leena Uppal has commenced with us today and will provide skin related consultations from 4.30-6.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays from our Kalamunda surgery.

Dr Uppal began practicing medicine in 2002 in England, specialising in General Practice in 2006 and becoming a Member of the Royal College of General Practitioners (England) in 2008 and training in Facial Aesthetic Procedures. In 2010, Dr Uppal and her husband took their two young daughters on an adventure to Cyprus, where she worked as a civilian GP serving the families and enlisted men and women of the UK Army and Air Force. In 2011, they finally decided upon beautiful Perth as the perfect place to raise a family and launch a medical practice. Dr Uppal became a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and a member of the Skin Cancer College of Australasia, packed up their young family and have never looked back! Dr Uppal and her family live in the Perth hills with two chihuahuas, chooks and horses. She and her husband love the arts and food scene in Perth and the whole family loves exploring beautiful WA in their caravan.

With Dr Uppal joining us, and the recent commencement of Dr Yinyee Yeung, the Kalamunda Skin Clinic now has four dedicated Doctors offering appointments throughout the week, including convenient after-hours consultations Monday-Thursday.

We are pleased to announce that Dr Yinyee Yeung will commence with Mead on Wednesday 16th May, offering skin related appointments at convenient late afternoon and early evening appointment times.

The new National cervical screening program commenced on 1st Dec 2017. If you are due or overdue for your pap smear, please make an appointment to see your GP as soon as possible to get the new cervical screening test. One of the best ways to avoid getting cervical cancer is to have regular screening, which is now every 5 years instead of every 2 years. 

The new screening program has increased accuracy, which can detect the disease earlier, treat earlier, and achieve a further reduction in the new cases of cervical cancer in Australia. However, this requires the active participation of all eligible women to come in for screening. Unfortunately, 80% of new cases of cervical cancer occur in women who have never been screened or have been overdue for some time.

The major changes to the new screening program include:

  • Starting age of screening  – now from 25yrs old, instead of 18yrs old;
  • Finishing age of screening – now finish at 75yrs old, instead of 70yrs old; and
  • If results are normal, screening test is every 5 years instead of every 2 years.

Therefore, if you are under 25yrs old, and your last pap smear result was normal, you do not need to have another cervical screening test until you turn 25.

If you are between the age of 70-74yrs, you will be invited to return to your GP to have one more cervical screening test.  If the result of that test is normal, you may exit the screening program.

If your last pap smear was an abnormal result, then you need to follow the treatment protocol according to your doctor, including those under the age of 25. (For example, if you were 21yrs old when you had an abnormal result for your pap smear, and you were advised to return in 12 months for a repeat pap smear, then you do need to return in 12 months when you are 22yrs old to have a cervical screening test, not wait until you are 25yrs old.) 

It is important to remember that the screening test is only for women who do not have the following symptoms (which are suggestive of possible cervical cancer or other diseases):

  • abnormal vaginal bleeding;
  • abnormal vaginal discharge; or
  • vaginal or pelvic pain.

If you suffer from these symptoms, please see your GP as soon as possible for an assessment, as these symptoms may warrant different investigations.

If you have any more queries regarding the new screening program, please make an appointment to discuss with your doctor or go online for more information – http://www.cancerscreening.gov.au/
