Clontarf Bridge Medical Centre Fees & Appointments
Fees and Payments
To continue to deliver the best possible quality of care, our practice will be introducing fees from 5 September 2022. All billing is done at the discretion of the individual GPs.
Bulk billing services may be available for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders, pensioners with a health care card, Veterans’ Affairs card holders and children aged under 16. Medicare cards and concession cards must be presented before each consultation.
Any reports or medicals required for work or recreations will be billed privately, please contact the clinic for further information. Our doctors may choose to privately bill procedures. This is at the discretion of the individual GP and will be discussed with the patient prior to the procedure. Any concerns, please discuss with your doctor.
Reception can assist with processing payments, and Medicare refunds.

If you do not have a Medicare Card you will be required to pay a fee. Payment is required on the day of the consultation and can be made by cash, EFTPOS or Credit Card (excluding Diners and AMEX cards). 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.
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 appointments out of hours, please call DoctorDoctor on 13 26 60.
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.
