This medical centre operates on a walk-in basis. At times you may experience a waiting period due to GPs tending to urgent or complex medical issues. We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding
Our appointment system caters for urgent, non urgent, complex, planned chronic care and preventative healthcare. We are a walk-in medical centre. 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 appointments out of hours, please call DoctorDoctor on 13 26 60.
