Booking Policy

We will always try to accommodate you with the doctor of your choice on your preferred date and time, however when this is not possible, we will offer you the option to see another doctor.

Billing Policy

Patients with Medicare cards (usually Australian residents) will have no out-of-pocket costs for standard appointments (in most cases), as it will be billed directly to Medicare. Some out of pocket expenses are incurred for commercial medical and driver's licence assessments which are not covered by Medicare. 

For those not covered by Medicare standard appointments are $40, long appointments are $80 and phone consults are $50. 

Some procedures have out-of-pocket costs, you will be advised at the time of booking the procedure. Please ask at Reception for further details.

 

Referrals and Repeat Prescriptions

If you wish to request an updated or new referral for an external health provider, or a new prescription for your medication, you will be required to make an appointment with your GP.
