Spirometry (Breathing) Clinics
Greenwood Health offers a specialised lung function test called spirometry. This measures a number of different lung functions through a spirometer. If you have respiratory symptoms or conditions such as asthma or COPD, your doctor may recommend you have this test. Spirometry can also be part of a pre-employment medical check.
Our spirometry clinic is held on Tuesday mornings with a specially trained nurse. Initial appointments take 30' and cost $45. A repeat review costs $30, and takes 15'. Some registered patients might be eligible for spirometry funding - you can check with your doctor if you meet the conditions required for this.
If you have any questions or concerns about your breathing or your inhalers, please raise them with your regular doctor or nurse who can refer you for spirometry. They can also check whether any funding is available for you.
