Circle of Security (CoS) is a relationship-based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children. From the moment children are born, they are doing their best to communicate their needs. CoS helps us understand our children's needs. These workshops are a safe space to explore and support our parenting and understand how to relate to our children.
Parents and caregivers of children aged 0-8 years. It is recommended that caregivers arrange childcare for their children due to the nature of the therapeutic work covered.

Below are some frequently asked questions about our Flu Immunisation Clinic to assist you.
Appointments can be booked:
After booking your appointment, please enter through the main reception and inform one of our friendly receptionists you’ve arrived for your flu vaccine. If it’s your first time at our Practice, it’s advised you arrive at least 10 minutes ahead of your appointment time to complete our new patient form. Once this is completed, please ask one of our receptionists to point you in the direction of our height, weight, and blood pressure machines which we ask you to use to help our doctors help you.
Your doctor will ask you about your vaccination history and allergies, and then transfer you to one of our nurses who will confirm your allergies again. This nurse will complete your vaccination form for you to hand to reception. The out-of-pocket cost will be $14.98. You must wait 15 minutes after the vaccination before leaving.
Influenza (or the flu) is a highly contagious, acute viral infection that spreads easily from person to person. The flu can spread from person to person by:
Signs and Symptoms:
Symptoms usually appear 1 to 3 days after becoming infected.
The symptoms of flu can include:
In the elderly, fever may be absent and the only signs and symptoms of flu may be:
Annual vaccination is the best way to reduce the risk of getting the flu and its complications. Vaccination is encouraged to protect family/friends with lowered immunity (babies, grandparents etc). The period where the flu is at its peak of circulation is around June to September, but it is never too late to vaccinate as it can potentially circulate all year round.
The vaccine does not contain live flu viruses and cannot cause flu. However, some people may experience mild flu-like symptoms for up to 48 hours as their immune system responds to the vaccine.
There are some very mild and short term common side effects associated with flu vaccination, normally lasting no more than 48 hours. These side effects may be more noticeable in children under five years of age. Side effects include:
Very rarely do more serious side effects can occur. These tend to be allergic (anaphylactic) reactions to components in the vaccine.
If you are concerned that your side effects are persisting for too long, or they increase in severity, or become concerning to you, please book an appointment or walk in and see one of our GP’s or, if required, call 000.
If you meet any of the above criteria, please speak with one of our GP’s about vaccination under the National Immunisation Program.
For some patients, vaccination may not be appropriate. People who this might apply to include;
Please discuss this with one of our GP’s if you are unsure as to whether the flu vaccine is appropriate for you.
