Bookings

The practice has appointments available from Monday to Fridays from 9am to 5pm. Concession card holders are bulk billed. Appointments with the nurse for vaccinations, wound care, health checks, iron infusions, blood pressure checks, etc. are available Tuesdays and Fridays. Appointments are available in 15 minute increments with longer appointments of 30 minutes available for more than one issue or for more complex issues. Bookings can be made by phoning reception or by visiting the practice and online bookings can be made using Hotdocs. There are 2 appointments available with each doctor for on the day or urgent problems. Please phone on the day to access these and let reception know it is urgent. Infants and children under the age of 3 will always be seen on the day when requested for urgent matters. If you are unable to attend your appointment, please notify reception as soon as possible so your appointment place can be given to another patient in need. Not attending your appointment without cancelling prior, or cancelling less than 2 hours prior may incur a $50 cancellation fee, to be paid before any further appointments can be made. Again, we do not want to create barriers to accessing care so we will do all we can to avoid this, however repeated cancellations or non-attendances make it very difficult to run a medical practice and this fee may be enforced before further appointments can be made.
