Depending on the doctor, normal appointments are booked for 10-15 minutes duration. If you feel you will need longer than this, eg. PAP smear, Counselling, pre-employment medicals etc, please inform the reception staff when making your appointment so adequate time can be allocated.
Wherever possible, it would be appreciated if you could ring us to let us know if you are not attending. We reserve the right to charge a missed appointment fee of $50 should at least 4 hours notice of cancellation of appointment not be given. Please be aware that this charge is NOT MEDICARE REBATEABLE.
Our doctors work with our nurses and we run diabetic clinics, asthma clinics as well as immunisation and children's health check clinics. Please enquire with our staff should you have any questions.
We have on-site physiotherapists, diabetic education, dietitians, podiatrists, audiologists, remedial massage therapists, psychologists as well as dentists operating from our centres. If you have private health cover, you do not need a GP referral to see one of the allied health unless you intend to claim a medicare rebate under an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan. If so, then you will need to make an appointment with your GP to get an EPC referral.
In general, an appointment needs to be made for the doctor to assess the need for a prescription/referral. Where a medication is ongoing, the doctor may write a script without a clinical consultation provided no checkups need to be done. In this instance, there will be an additional charge which is currently $21 to cover costs. Alternatively, you can request a script/referral via this website (click on contact us -->script/referral request or alternatively the link on the right of the screen) and the doctor on duty will check and ensure it is clinically appropriate to provide the prescription/referral without a clinical consultation.
Medicare rules prohibit the backdating of referral letters and as such, the doctors at this clinic WILL NOT issue backdated referral letters. In addition, we ask that an appointment be made in order for the need for a referral letter be assessed.
We work on the principle that if an investigation is important enough to be performed, it should be important enough to be followed up, hence the doctors prefer that all results are conveyed in the context of a follow up consultation.
