QUICK CLINIC - NOT RUNNING THROUGH COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Is a 6 minute appointment available on Tuesdays and bulk billed. This is for one issue only, eg. repeat scripts, ongoing referrals. A quick review of test results if your Doctor sees fit.
We recommend you book an appointment in advance, to discuss all test results. Currently there are a few appointment options to do so, telehealth is offered throughout COVID-19, dependant on Medicare requirements. Please speak to reception for more information.
Outside the pandemic, we may not be able to offer phone consults, therefore a standard face-to-face appointment with your doctor will need to be booked. Your doctor will advise if you will receive results in another way.
Non urgent recalls are sent via a secure SMS through HotDoc.
You may leave a message with reception requesting a doctor to return your call. When doctors are consulting they are unable to take telephone calls from patients, but they will return your call as soon as possible which may be at the end of their sessions either at lunchtime or in the evening.
