Appointments

An appointment is required to be seen at the surgery. Please call our receptionist to make an appointment or book online. We do not accept walk-in patients, unless it is a medical emergency. We keep a number of appointments open each day for patients who are sick and need to be seen quickly. To get access to these appointments please ring our receptionist at 8.00am.

Test results

Unless organized otherwise with your doctor, please make an appointment to discuss results of tests. You are able to ring for the results of urine samples, cervical screening and pregnancy tests.

Our Practice Nurses offer a range of services, assisting the doctors, including:

  • Immunisations/Vaccinations
  • Health Assessments
  • GP Management Plans

Sick Certificates

A sickness certificate can only be provided as a result of a consultation. A certificate cannot be backdated or provided via a telephone request.

New Patients

We are currently not able to accept new patients due to being at capacity. We hope to re-open new patient bookings in the very near future.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

Elizabeth Family Health has been selected by the Australian Government to supply COVID-19 vaccines to eligible patients. Check your eligibility, or visit www.health.gov.au for more information. If you have further personal questions about eligibility or the COVID-19 vaccination, please book a regular or telephone consult with your usual GP.

Coronavirus Health Alert

The threat level of COVID-19 in South Australia is escalated. For the safety of our patients and staff, we encourage telephone appointments (where possible).
If a face-to-face appointment is required, it will be time-limited, and we request that all patients wear a face mask while in the clinic.
We also observe social distancing >1.5m and limit the number of patients in our waiting room.
If you have symptoms of the flu, a cold, or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary. Please refer to the SA Health website for a list of COVID-19 clinics and testing centres.
If you are unwell and have respiratory symptoms, please ask for a telephone appointment with a GP, and a safe review will be arranged.
The Government has restricted Medicare GP telehealth items to circumstances where a patient has COVID-19 and/or is a close contact and is required to quarantine or isolate under a state directive, or where there is an existing relationship with a general practice (i.e., the patient has visited a GP in the practice face-to-face in the last 12 months), children aged under 12 months, or patients who are homeless. Please be aware that a private fee may be incurred for telephone or video consults.
