APPOINTMENTS

We make every effort to accommodate your preferred time and GP. However, emergencies do occur, and though every effort is made to keep to appointment times, emergencies will be given priority. Our staff will attempt to contact you if unforseen delays occur.

Long APPOINTMENTs

Please let your receptionist know if/ why a longer consultation is required. We strive to make sure we give each patient the time they need to prevent taking up the time of other patients.  If in doubt, always 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
  • Counselling
  • Excisions
  • 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

TELEHEALTH

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.

Reminders

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 patients responsibility to remember their appointment time and the SMS reminder system should not be solely relied upon.

RECALLS

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.
