Consultation is by appointment. Patients presenting without an appointment will be fitted in at the earliest available time. Urgent medical matters will always be dealt with promptly. Please “check-in” with reception on your arrival to avoid an unnecessary delay in the waiting room.
Whilst every effort is made to keep on time for appointments, this can sometimes be difficult due to emergencies, walk-in patients or unexpected long consultations. To help schedule appropriately, please inform our reception staff if you require a longer consultation, and what it may be for. Cancellations If you are unable to keep your appointment, please phone the practice prior to your appointment to cancel or reschedule. This will allow your appt time to be allocated to another patient.
Walk-ins will be allocated the first available consultation, which may require some waiting. Emergencies will be attended to immediately.

Home visits can be arranged for regular patients who are unable to attend due to their condition. Patients can contact the reception for a home visit and will be scheduled for at the end of the day, if not urgent.
After Hours and Emergency

Medical Certificates & Forms
An appointment is required if you need any type of medical certificate, eg for work or Centrelink.
If doctor is unavailable, staff will take details and will ask them to call you back when able to. If it is urgent, the phone call will be put through to doctor immediately.
If you have been sent for a test, please make sure to make an appointment in 2-3 days for the results, when leaving. If any results are abnormal and/or require urgent attention we will contact you. Please ensure that your contact details are up to date.
To further improve our service to you, we have implemented a patient recall & reminder system. We will contact you by either by phone or letter to make an appointment for when you are due for a preventive health check E.G pap, skin check, blood pressure. Our practice also takes part in the national register, who also helps work out who and when is due. Patients attending this practice will automatically be included on our recall/reminder system. Please inform the Doctor or practice staff if you do not wish to be contacted. You will need to sign a form to opt out, that will be scanned into your chart.
Engaging with other services and referrals
Our practice regularly engages with local health services, such as specialists, allied health and hospitals. If required, your GP will provide sufficient information [ referral letter] to plan and facilitate optimal patient care. Appointment is required to get a referral.
