Appointments

Appointments

An appointment is required to be seen by a doctor or nurse at our practice. 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 arranged with your doctor, please make an appointment to discuss your test results. You are able to ring for the results of urine samples, cervical screening, and pregnancy tests.

New Patients

If you are new to our practice, please arrive ten minutes before your appointment to allow you time to complete a New Patient Information form, and to see the nurse for your observations prior to seeing the doctor.

Nurse Services

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

  • Immunisations/Vaccinations
  • Health Assessments
  • GP Management Plans
  • Veterans’ Care Program
  • Management of chronic illness e.g. diabetes, hypertension, and asthma
  • Wound management

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.

Coronavirus Health Alert

As the threat level of COVID-19 is currently low in South Australia, we’re now offering face-to-face appointments. We continue to monitor the situation in other States closely.
We also observe social distancing >1.5m and limit the number of patients in our waiting room.

If you have symptoms of fever, flu, a cold, or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary. If you require help to arrange this, please book a telephone consult with a GP first, and an appropriate safe review can be arranged.

For patients with other conditions who would prefer a telephone or video consult, these appointments continue to be available.

Medicare GP telehealth items are restricted to circumstances where a patient has 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), other than for children aged under 12 months or patients who are homeless.

Please be assured that our clinic is COVID-19 safe, and we remain prepared to transition back to telephone triage of all consults should COVID-19 threat levels increase.
