Important message to our patients

If you have flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat, cough or difficulty breathing, have recently travelled to identified hotspots or overseas, or have been in contact with someone that has COVID-19 or experiences flu-like symptoms, please avoid walk-in appointments.

Together, we can continue to stop the spread.

Information for Patients

Fees

Our practice offers a mixed billing system, with Medicare rebates applying to most services. Practice fees are based on the length and complexity of the consultation. Bulk billing* applies to Children under the age of 16, Aged Pensioners. We may offer discount fees to patients with Health Care Cards, or who are on a disability pension.

*Please note that some doctors don’t offer bulk billing on any services.

Our appointment system offers a standard consultation with a 15 minute time slot.

Appointments can be made in person at the reception desk, by telephone or online via your computer or mobile phone.

If you require longer than 15 minutes, please ask at time of booking for a longer appointment. For example, if you have complex conditions, multiple issues and counselling.

On arrival, it is important to let reception staff know you have arrived by presenting at the reception counter. We will also ask for you to confirm and/or update your details.

If your problem is urgent e.g. chest pain or shortness of breath, please tell the receptionist immediately.

Results

Your results are confidential between you and your regular Doctor. (For continuity of care) Please make an appointment to obtain your results, unless your Doctor arranged otherwise. Once you have had your tests, the practice will receive your results via our computer system.

Your doctor will review your results and determine what follow up is needed:

If your results require urgent attention, the practice will phone you.

If your results are abnormal (but do not require urgent attention), your doctor will send you an sms or letter asking you to make an appointment to discuss them.

If your results are normal, your doctor will let you know at your next appointment.

If you have had an X-ray or ultrasound you will need to make an appointment to have the results reviewed.

If you are concerned about your results at any time, please phone the surgery and make an appointment to review them with your doctor

Recalls & Reminders

This practice offers ‘recalls’ & ‘reminders’ for patients to promote continuity of care and to ensure best possible health outcomes.

We use SMS to contact you for proactive reminders and other health information (this does not include results or other private information).

Please ensure that we have your most appropriate and up to date contact details listed.

Please inform us if you do not wish to participate.
