APPOINTMENTS:

Please ring 5445 1406 during office hours for all appointments.  Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred GP and time, but emergencies will be given priority.  If a longer consultation is needed, please inform our reception staff at the time of booking.  When attending for your appointment please present your Medicare Card and advise of any change of details e.g. address or phone contact change to ensure your record is up to date.

Childhood Immunisations, Pap Smears which are part of a Wellbeing Check, patients with multiple medical issues or patients who may require counselling are usually allocated a longer appointment in order to properly address their needs.  Please help us to manage our time and yours by booking your regular appointments for reviews, referrals and prescriptions ahead of time, at least 2 weeks prior to running out of prescriptions.  An appointment is needed for any repeat prescriptions or ongoing referral requests.  This allows for those who require urgent medical attention to be seen on the day.

Referrals to specialists and other health care providers are sent electronically via Medical Objects, faxed directly or given to the patient at the time of consultation if time permits.

If for some reason you cannot attend your appointment, please let the surgery know as early as possible.

If you or a family member requires an interpreter service, we can organise this for you.  Please let us know when you make the appointment.
