We operate an independent, traditional general practice committed to offering quality health care to our patients. We are proud to be fully accredited by AGPAL, the peak general practice accrediting body. In accordance with the government requirements we ask you to complete the ethnicity section on our practice registration form.
Consultations are by appointment. We attempt to keep to appointment times but sometimes we may run late due to emergencies taking priority, and we appreciate your understanding when this occurs.
A standard consultation is enough time to discuss one problem. If you have several issues, you will need to book a long appointment to allow your Doctor to address each of your concerns.
We are not a bulk-billing practice as we believe that we can offer a much better standard of service if we do not bulk-bill. We have set the current fees for 2017 as shown our fees page.
As well as routine consultations, the following services are available:
- Family planning, cervical screenings, pregnancy tests.
- Travel Vaccinations
- Childhood Immunisations & 4yr old Health Checks
- Insurance Medical Examinations
- Diabetic clinics
- Adult Health Assessments
- Pre-Employment Medicals
Consultations are by appointment, but urgent cases will be seen by the first available doctor. If an interpreter is required this can be organised for you. In emergencies, ring 000 for an ambulance.
Please give at least 2 hours’ notice of any cancellations
If you require medical care and the practice is closed please phone our after-hours service, National Home Doctor Service on 13 74 25
Some doctors are available for home visits within a 3 Km distance from the practice. Visits are at the doctor’s discretion and are usually done at the end of the doctor’s list for the day.
Standard consultations are booked for fifteen minutes. Please book a double appointment for:
- New adult patients
- General check-up for men & women
- Travel advice incorporating vaccinations
- Mental Health problems
- More than one issue to be addressed
