How do I refer patients to Green Apple Wellness Centre?

Getting your patients started with Green Apple Wellness Centre Exercise Physiologists is easy.

Step One

Patients can be referred to Green Apple Wellness Centre using a Medicare Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan or Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC).

Step Two

Once we have received the patient’s CDM/EPC referral, we will contact them by phone. Patients can also contact us directly. During this call, we book their initial appointment.

Step Three

Patients will attend an initial one-on-one appointment of 60-minute duration. A consultation is conducted and advice provided regarding the best services available for their needs. A written Wellness plan is prepared after discussion of what the patient chooses to do.

Step Four

Patients attend the Induction Sessions as per the Wellness plan – how many inductions sessions are required will depend on the plan.

Step Five

The Exercise Physiologist will prepare a clinical note and Medicare report, then send this to you electronically.

Step Six

Follow-up sessions are booked based on the patient’s needs.


What is Green Apple Wellness Centre?

The Green Apple Wellness Centre has a team of Accredited Exercise Physiologists who specialise in delivering high-level care for people managing chronic health conditions and wellness concerns, which include chronic pain, Type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, hip and knee replacements, and other biomechanical dysfunctions.

The primary objective is to provide a place where “non-gym” people can exercise in a fun, safe, and non-threatening environment.

The Green Apple opened in 1978 and has developed into a club that has programs for all age groups – from seniors to people as young as 5.  The Centre has a strong community feeling where laughter and happy voices echo and enduring friendships are made.  Relationship-building is encouraged between staff and staff, staff with members and members with members, and all clients have many opportunities to meet both in group activities in the Centre, or to have individual exercise time if this is their preference.  The environment encourages adherence and compliance to individual’s health outcomes.

Liaisons with referring doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and podiatrists are encouraged for best patient outcomes.

Platinum Wellness Membership

This Platinum Wellness Membership is a total-care service for those patients who need that extra full care for chronic conditions and for clients who take their health and wellness seriously and want ongoing “prescription” exercise. These members are encouraged to attend onsite regularly and we have a range of small supervised sessions throughout the week to help with compliance and adherence to their exercise.
