Private Fees

Neutral Bay Medical Centre does NOT bulk bill. However, exceptions are made under the discretion of the Doctor only. Reception cannot offer you bulk billing.

If patients are seeking simple repeat scripts, referrals and other single, simple requests, generally bulk billing will be offered, but an appointment MUST be made.

 

Making Payments

Payment is required at the time of consultation, no accounts issued. Payment can be made using cash, EFTPOS or credit card facilities.

Workers Compensation / Motor Vehicle Accident Cover: Patients are accountable for ALL fees at the time of consult, until such time as we have been informed by the insurance company that FULL liability has been accepted and NOT just provisional liability. 

Appointments

Walk-ins

We normally require people to make a booking but we can sometimes help if you walk into the medical centre. Priority is given to people who have made a booking. 

 

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.

 

Waiting Times

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.

 

After Hours

For appointments out of hours, please call DoctorDoctor on 13 26 60.

 

Home Visits

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.
