We run by an appointment system to minimize your waiting time, however urgent cases/ emergencies will be seen on the day. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred GP, time, and date. Due to unforeseen circumstances, such as an emergency, delays can sometimes occur, and your patience would be appreciated if this should happen before your appointment.Phone Appointments: Limited phone appointments are available. You may be eligible if you are COVID positive; if you are elderly and have difficulty mobilizing; and sometimes for results (although this is at the doctor’s discretion).
To organise a phone appointment, please speak to our receptionists and advise them of your situation. Please be aware that Medicare regulations require that you have visited our practice or have seen one of our doctors in the past 12 months to be eligible for telephone appointments.We also welcome walk in patients. This is dependent on the doctor’s availability on the day, and you may need to wait or return at a more suitable time.
If you require a longer appointment, please discuss this with the receptionist when booking your appointment. We ask patients to arrive on time for their appointment so other patients are not inconvenienced.
