Cooking With Kristen: Homemade Granola

26 May 2020

Homemade Granola
 

Finding a granola that ticks all the boxes can be difficult. Many of the ones packed on supermarket shelves are high in sugar or over toasted to the point where you have a dental disaster waiting to happen!

 

Creating your own means you can completely customise your mix of ingredients to your taste and your health needs.

 

*This recipe makes a large batch. Store in the pantry in an airtight jar or container and it will keep for months!

Telehealth Services On Offer At Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic

26 March 2020

To alleviate concerns and minimise exposure to COVID-19, while continuing to offer essential services to the public as best we can, we have introduced Telehealth consults at Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic.

Please Note: At this stage, for as long as it is safe and within Government regulations, we remain open to the public for face-to-face consultations as well as Telehealth consultations.

What is Telehealth? 
In short, video consultations between health professionals and their patients.
It allows for the exchange of health information between a practitioner and patient in separate locations.
While this is not suitable for all appointments, it is an option we want to offer as widely as we can to ensure as many people as possible can access the help they need.
Initially we will be introducing video consults for appointments with Physiotherapists, one of our Sport & Exercise Medicine Physicians, and one of our Sport & Exercise Medicine Registrars, but we will look to expand it across other services soon. In addition, all of our Sports Medicine Doctors currently have the capacity to do phone consultations.

Construction Is Underway

Construction Is Underway . . .

 

Well actually, it has been for a while, but photos of pipes going in underground and footings being poured aren't as interesting!

 

While that was happening the steel framework was being fabricated off-site.

 

This week the frame has been going up, and quickly, so things are really starting to take shape.
