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.

NOTIFICATION RE: TELE-CONSULTATIONS

From Monday 30th March, our doctors shifted to delivering consults predominantly via telephone or video telehealth. A large proportion of routine medical care can safely be performed over telehealth. These measures are in place for your safety. Fortunately, the levels of COVID-19 within our community are currently low.
To book an appointment online for a telephone consult with a doctor, please click here. In most cases, telephone or video consults during the pandemic will be bulk-billed.
If your problem requires an examination, a safe face-to-face appointment will be scheduled. On arrival at the clinic, you will be asked to call reception to inform them that you have arrived – please continue to wait outside. You will be called and taken directly into the consulting room. While this precaution might appear extreme, it further adds to your safety.
If you have symptoms of fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose or shortness of breath, you may be eligible for testing for COVID-19. Please book a telephone consult with your GP who will discuss and arrange this.
Call 000 if you need urgent medical assistance.
We will also be reaching out to our vulnerable patients and those with chronic diseases to create or update their Chronic Disease Management Plans. Patients over 70 years old, Aboriginal and over 50 years old, and those with chronic disease are more vulnerable to COVID-19. Together, we can optimise your health. Please prioritise finding time to work with us on this.
