Iron Infusions

If you have iron deficiency (either with or without anaemia) and think you might benefit from an Iron Infusion please make an appointment to discuss further with your GP.

Iron infusion, like everything in medicine does have some risks so we want to really try the tablet iron first. Iron infusion has risks of allergic reaction to the iron which can even be the severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis. The other main risk is of skin staining. If the iron leaks out of the vein during giving the iron, this can stain the skin – in effect a tattoo. The skin staining is permanent.

For the iron infusion, we bring you into the procedure room and place a drip, like at the hospital for giving fluid into the vein. After checking blood pressure and pulse we slowly give the iron over 15minutes. We then need to watch you for a further 30minutes to ensure you are well before getting you home. Sometimes 2 iron infusions (given at least 1 week apart) are needed to fully top-up iron stores. There can be some muscle and bone aches over the next 24 hours as the bone marrow absorbs the new iron. You will need a follow up test in one month and six months to see how the iron level is going.

If you think you would like to check your iron levels then book in  a iron infusion pre consult and discuss with your GP.




We encourage you to have your annual flu shot as the flu vaccine changes yearly to keep up with the most common strains. Vaccination from mid-April onwards is likely to result in peak immunity during the flu season.

Flu vaccines are also free for:

Pregnant women (a flu vaccine can be safely given at any stage of pregnancy)

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 6 months and older

Patients with chronic conditions or are severely immuno-compromised

There is no fee for the consultation, just the cost of the flu vaccine, if applicable.

For more information about the flu vaccine, please visit 2024 Fluvax Information.
