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.

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.

Please check back soon, or call us on 8280 5822 if you have any queries.

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. Please be assured that our clinic is COVID-19 safe.

The Government has restricted Medicare GP telehealth items to circumstances where a patient has been directed by the State health authority  to self-isolate or quarantine, 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), children aged under 12 months or patients who are homeless. Please be aware that otherwise a private or gap fee may be incurred for telephone or video consults.

Call 000 if you need urgent medical assistance.
