Fees

Dee Why General Practice offers reduced fees for pensioners with a health care card and Veterans’ Affairs card holders.

Please check with reception or speak with your doctor if you are unsure about any fees.  Fees are charged at the discretion of the individual GP. Thank you for your understanding.

Medicare cards and concession cards must be presented before each consultation.

Walk-ins

Until further notice, we are no longer accepting walk ins  due to the current safety measures in place at the practice.

 

Appointments

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.
