Iron Infusions Brighton
At Newbay Medical Clinic, we’re proud to bring you the quality care you deserve every time you come through our door. As a team of well-rounded, informed, and reassuring medical professionals, we understand that having adequate iron levels is vital to your everyday wellbeing. However, we also get that not everybody can tolerate oral iron tablets. In these cases, iron infusions can be an excellent way to receive the iron you need quickly, safely, and effectively.
Our caring team are here to provide iron infusions to as many people in the Bayside local communities as possible including suburbs such as Bentleigh, Caulfield South, Elwood, Gardenvale, Hampton & Sandringham.

Your Iron Infusion Questions Answered
To discuss your suitability for an iron infusion, please book an initial appointment with one of our GPs. We’ll arrange for your procedure if you’re deemed suitable for an iron infusion. We perform a blood test to determine the appropriateness of an iron infusion and the dose required prior to administration.
Around one in ten patients may experience flu-like symptoms following their infusion, such as muscle aches, mild fever, or a headache. Allergic reactions or anaphylaxis are rare but serious side effects, which is why we monitor you afterwards and have qualified staff on hand to manage this if necessary.
At Newbay Medical Clinic, all our doctors are trained in the use of IV cannulas in the delivery of iron infusions. Despite the best practice insertion of the IV cannula and administration of the iron infusion, paravenous leakage can occur leading to a permanent brown stain on the skin. Please discuss this with your doctor prior to your procedure.
