We endeavour to respond as quickly as possible to urgent appointment requests for current patients, however, this may not always be possible within a suitable timeframe and we will recommend the above urgent care requirements if necessary.

We do not charge cancellation fees, however, please let the practice know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend your appointment so that it can be offered to someone on the appointment waiting list.

 

Scripts must be requested at the time of consultation.  
In the event that you require a script outside of a consultation a phone appointment will be scheduled in our script clinic and this is bulk-billed for current patients.  Please note you must have attended an appointment within the last 4 weeks.

This is a private practice and all clinic consultations are associated with a fee. A medicare refund will be available in most circumstances. The Medicare Safety net allows for an increased refund amount once an individual or family’s total medical costs for the year reach a certain threshold. More information can be found here.
