Asthma & Spirometry Tests

Over 2 million people in Australia have asthma – approximately 40 000 end up in hospital each year and many more say their quality of life is lower because of their asthma.

Regular check-ups are important to help you to make sure your asthma is optimally managed. We have started a new clinic for people aged over 16 to help with that. The consultation will take around 45 minutes and includes a specialised test to check your lung function called spirometry, a consultation with a GP and development of a personalised asthma management plan. Medicare rebates are available for this service.
