OUR FEES ARE CHANGING
Dear patients, from May 2022, a $30 gap fee applies for all patients if you are aged 18-64 without a Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card. Patients under 18, 65 and over will continue to be bulk billed. See ‘Our Fees’ section below for more details.
Myhealth Newington opened its doors in June 2013, having taken over Newington Family Medical Practice. We are a Mixed Billing Medical Centre and have allied health services in one convenient location. Our practice nurse is available from 9am-4pm weekdays for childhood immunisations and procedures. Procedures incur a gap fee that reception or the doctor can advise you prior to your booking.
The current services within Myhealth Newington include Physiotherapy, Dietician Services, Podiatry and Psychology.
Upstairs you will find a Douglass Hanly Moir pathology collection centre.
Our practice is in a central area of Newington opposite the Newington shopping centre, conveniently located for local residents and businesses. There is free 2 hour ticketed parking available over the road.
Appointments required, walk ins may be asked to return another time if no doctors are available.
For your added convenience we also accept online bookings.
We have a strict cancellation policy and by booking an appointment you are agreeing to this policy. If you do not attend your appointment and reception are not notified of a cancellation the day before or first thing in the morning of the appointment, it will be recorded as a missed appointment. After 2 missed appointments you will be charged a $50 fee and will not be able to book appointments until the fee is paid. Missed appointments will stay on your file for 1 year. Please see reception for full details, allied health providers have their own policies in place.
For anyone with any cold and flu symptoms, such as sore throat, cough, runny nose, congested nose, sneezing, fever, chest discomfort, shortness of breath please book to go to the nearest GP respiratory clinic funded by The Department of Health. Click here. Please do not book online or present to the practice.
To comply with social distancing, we ask when possible to please attend your appointment alone. Adults accompanying a patient may be asked to wait outside the practice. Thank you for understanding.
We thank everyone for their understanding and co-operation in these difficult times.
OUR FEES ARE CHANGING
We would like to inform you that from May 2022, a $30 gap applies for all consultations.
The following patients will continue to be bulk-billed to Medicare for all general consultations with no gap fee when booked ahead:
• Patients aged under 18
• Patients aged 65 or over
• Patients with Health Care or Pensioner Concession cards
• Appointments for COVID vaccines/ Flu vaccines
If you are aged 18-64 without a Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card a $30 gap applies for all appointments. However, this is not applicable for Mental Health Care Plan or Care Plan related consults.
For consults where a $30 gap applies, please ensure you book a long appointment for multiple or complex issues or else you will need to return after having only booked a standard appointment and will be required to pay the gap for each appointment. Please be advised standard consultation bookings are allocated 15 minutes; long consultations are 30 minutes.
We are very committed to providing high quality care to our patients and community. The reason for the introduction of a gap fee for some patients is the rising costs of running a general practice and the reluctance of the government in funding these higher costs.
