We are a mixed billing practice. Consultation fees will depend on the length and complexity of the consult. Medical consumables associated with the treatment provided will attract a separate fee. All outstanding accounts are to be settled at the time of consultation.
We offer Medicare online claiming, so any Medicare rebate can be paid directly to your bank account immediately, as long as you have a savings account card.
Our clinic provides on-site Allied Health services. There is an out-of-pocket expense for these services. To find out about what costs are involved with these services, please speak to reception by calling 8280 5822.
Please call us if you cannot attend your appointment.
We work hard to provide our patients with exceptional care. If you cannot attend your appointment, please call us to cancel it so we can make that time available to another patient needing our help.
Please understand that we assign highly trained nurses and doctors for these appointments, and there are many other patients who would appreciate this time. With appropriate notice, we can give your appointment to someone else.
Fees for unattended appointments will be charged as follows:
$15.00 fee for a standard appointment (not cancelled within two hours of the scheduled standard appointment time).
$20.00 fee for a Care Plan appointment (not cancelled within 24 hours prior to the appointment).
Procedures, such as skin lesion removal, are subject to an additional fee of $30 for treatment room costs. More complicated minor surgery will incur a higher fee which will be explained by your GP.

We are currently not able to accept new patients for consults due to being at capacity. We hope to re-open new patient bookings in the very near future.
However, we are able to provide Pfizer vaccinations to all patients. Bookings can be made online or by calling our friendly reception team.
Please call us on 8280 5822 if you have any queries.
From 1 January 2022 our fees will be changing. This decision has not been made lightly and is necessary due to the ongoing discrepancy between operating a general practice clinic and low increases to Medicare rebates offered by the Federal Government. A full list of fees is available at Reception. Please speak with our team if you have any questions.
Changing from Bulk-Billing to Mixed Billing
From 1 January 2022, our bulk-billing policy will change. Bulk-billing will only be available to children under 16, health care card, pension card and DVA Cardholders for an appointment during regular business hours. For patients outside of these groups, there will be a small out of pocket expense for most consultations. We will continue to bulk-bill all Health Assessment and Chronic Disease Management Plans. This decision has not been made lightly, and is necessary due to the ongoing discrepancy between operating a general practice clinic and low increases to Medicare rebates offered by the Federal Government. A full list of fees is available at Reception. Please speak with our team if you have any questions.
CORONAVIRUS HEALTH ALERT
We are currently experiencing an unprecedented demand for our service due to COVID-19. For the safety of GPs, staff, and patients, we require all patients and staff to 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.
HAVE YOU TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19?
If you recently tested positive for COVID-19, please visit the SA Health website for up-to-date health advice on how to report and manage your illness.
If you have tested positive and would like to access antiviral treatment, please confirm your eligibility at https://www.health.gov.au/health-alerts/covid-19/treatments/eligibility#eligibility-for-oral-covid19-treatments
If you are unwell, have respiratory symptoms and a negative COVID-19 test, please arrange a telephone appointment with a GP, and a safe face-to-face review will be arranged, if required.
For your safety and convenience, we encourage telephone or video appointments (where possible). The Government has restricted Medicare GP telehealth items to circumstances where a patient has confirmed COVID-19 and is required to 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 telephone or video consults may incur a private fee.
Call 000 if you need urgent medical assistance.
