What's making news at the moment?
Novel coronavirus (covid-19) health alert
IMPORTANT UPDATE 01/10/20
We are still encouraging as many people as possible to stay home, practice social distancing and self-isolation for possible infectious upper respiratory symptoms.
The doctors have all returned to the practice, however we are still doing as much as possible by telehealth for your safety and ours. The government has extended the medicare telehealth scheme, however, we are now unable to bulk bill telehealth consults for patients who have not attended the practice in person in the last 12 months. We are still able to provide telehealth consultations for these patients, however the consultations will incur a fee of $45, which does not qualify for a medicare rebate.
If you do wish to see your doctor in person, please discuss this with our reception staff and they will check with your doctor.
Vaccinations, wound dressings and other essential services are still operating so please speak with our reception staff regarding these concerns.
Thank you for your cooperation during this challenging time.
PLEASE CALL THE PRACTICE TO BOOK TELEHEALTH CONSULTATIONS OR USE OUR ONLINE BOOKING SYSTEM HOTDOC.

Changes to fees:
As of the 1st of July 2019, follow up appointments will now be charged, but at a reduced fee.
We have also reduced the upfront costs for long consultations(> 20 minutes) and prolonged consultations.(>40 minutes). This reduction now means that the out of pocket expense is uniform for regular, long and prolonged consultations.
