Please ring 9509 4488 for an appointment or to book online now. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred doctor and time. Emergencies will always be given priority. Our receptionists will let you know of any major or unforeseeable delays. Longer appointments are available on request; please organise with receptionists when making your appointment.

We know your time is just as important as ours, and we do try to run on time. However General Practice is full of unexpected emergencies and problems which may be more complicated than they first seem. These emergencies and urgent matters can result in unavoidable delays. We hope you understand that if we run late, it’s because we are devoting as much time as necessary, as we would for you.

Please notify the receptionists well in advance if unable to attend an appointment because we can reschedule it for use by another patient.

If you or a family member requires an interpreter service, we can organise this for you. Please let us know when you make an appointment.

If you require care outside our normal surgery hours, please contact the same surgery phone number 9509 4488. You will be forwarded to the doctor on call.

It is important to keep the surgery up to date with all your details. Change of address, telephone numbers, email address and pension and health card numbers need to be kept updated. A next of kin or an emergency contact is also very helpful.
GPs in the practice may be contacted during normal hours. If the GP is not available or with a patient, a message will be taken by our receptionist. Our nurses are also available to help and give results. Doctors or nurses will return the call as soon as practical.
As of the 1st of January 2018, our clinic will no longer routinely bulk bill Health Care Care or Pensioners. This is due to the rising cost of running the practice and the failure of the Medicare rebate to keep pace.

– $5 discount if paid on the day

Please note that any Procedures may incur an additional fee.

Referral & Prescription Requests – Outside of a consultation time will incur a $15 fee.

All Veterans Affairs Gold Card holders will continue to be bulk billed.

If any patient is experiencing financial hardship they are welcome to discuss this with their doctor.

With accounts payable on the date we can arrange for the Medicare rebate to be transmitted back into your account within 48 hours.
You must have your bank details registered with Medicare.

All Veteran Affair card holders will be asked to sign a voucher.

If you require any investigations or procedures during your consultation, the doctor will make you aware of any costs you may occur.
