|Consultation Type||Fee||Medicare Rebate||Out of Pocket|
Payment is required on the day of the consultation and can be made by cash, EFTPOS or Credit Card (excluding Diners cards). Bulk Billing is at the GPs discretion. All workers compensation and motor vehicle accident patients are required to pay their accounts at the time of consultation until a letter of liability is produced from their insurance company.
This centre operates on an appointment basis. Walk-ins are accepted, however there may be an unavoidable wait as priority is given to patients who have a booked appointment with their GP.
Our appointment system caters for urgent, non urgent, complex, planned chronic care and preventative healthcare. If you need more time with your GP, please book a long consultation. Urgent appointments will be seen by the next available GP. Please advise reception if you believe you require an urgent appointment. Urgent appointments will be triaged by the nurse on duty.
Sometimes GPs are delayed by patients with urgent or complex issues. We apologise if you’re asked to wait and thank you for your patience.
For after hours health care please call National Home Doctor Service on 13 74 25.
If you are a regular patient and can’t travel to the medical centre, your GP may be able to visit you at your home. This is at the discretion of your GP.
Please call Triple Zero (000) or go to your nearest hospital.
