Find a range of information to help you make informed decisions about your health care.
If you have any questions about the general running of our clinics, you might find the answer here; otherwise please call your practice during business hours for further information.
We make every effort to accommodate your preferred time and GP. However, emergencies do occur, and though doctors will make every effort to keep to appointment times, emergencies will be given priority. Our staff will attempt to contact you if unforeseen delays occur.
Please let our receptionists know if a longer consultation with your doctor is required. The doctors always strive to ensure every patient is given the time they need. If in doubt, please ask our receptionists when making an appointment.
Examples of longer consultations include (but are not limited to):
- Skin cancer checks
- Pregnancy/antenatal check-ups
- Insurance medical
- Pap smears
- A ‘list’ of health checks or concerns
- Child Immunisations
- Including more than one person in the appointment (eg. Partner/child etc)
- If you need an interpreter
TRANSLATION AND INTERPRETER
We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive environment and welcome patients from all backgrounds and have a multilingual team across most of our practices.
If you or another patient would prefer to speak in your own language, interpreters can be arranged at the time of booking.
OVERSEAS STUDENTS AND VISITORS
Myhealth can cater to Overseas Visitors Cover (OVC) & Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).
For more details, please contact your practice as fees may apply to some participating practices.
From time to time, you may be contacted by your doctor or the Myhealth team via electronic means to either provide advice or information relating to your care or for appointment reminders. Electronic communication includes: email, fax, SMS and through the practice-based application. Responding to patient-initiated communication will be at the discretion of the individual doctor and practice team.
All significant electronic communications will be recorded within the patient file and any sensitive information will be encrypted for privacy purposes.
Where appropriate, your GP may be able to consult with you via telehealth, on the phone or video chat. From time to time your GP or practice nurse may also call you to relay urgent medical information. Phone messages will be passed on to your GP and will be dealt with at their discretion. For all results, and health related enquiries please book in for a consultation to ensure you are given adequate time to discuss this with your GP.
Some practices may provide appointment reminders by SMS the day before your scheduled appointment, however, we cannot guarantee the successful delivery of an SMS reminder. It is a patient’s responsibility to remember their appointment time and the SMS reminder system should not be solely relied upon.
We are committed to preventative care and from time to time you may be contacted by our Practice team to book an appointment for repeat tests, immunisations, general follow up and pathology results.
