Payment at the time of your consultation is required and can be made by EFTPOS, cash or credit card. We can send your Medicare claim electronically. If your banking details are registered with Medicare you will receive your rebate into your account (usually within 48 hours). 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. Please discuss with your doctor if you are experiencing extenuating circumstances.
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.
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 medical attention, please ring (02) 6393 9600.
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.
