About our fees

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.

Allied Health services fees

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.

Cancellations

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).

Additional fees

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.

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.
