All phone consults are FULLY COVERED BY MEDICARE for patients with a Medicare card! You can book your phone appointment online! Make your booking by clicking the green Book Appointment button on the home page, via HotDoc or by calling (03) 6344 7177.

Please be assured that should you need to attend the surgery, we are: - Regularly cleaning surfaces - Distancing any patients that need to be in the waiting room - Asking patients to wait in the car until their doctor becomes available to minimise contact with the surgery - Patients with cold or flu like symptoms are kept to certain appointment times and kept away from other patients - Asking all patients to sanitise their hands on their way in

Face to Face Consultations

Face to Face Consultations

Face to face consults can be arranged with your GP should you need examination, your GP will make this decision during your phone consultation. We ask that routine appointments (ie. Cervical Screening, Diabetic Checks, Ear Toilets, Annual Check-Ups, Aged Care Assessments, etc.) be postponed for approximately 3 months. Some face-to-face appointments should be continued such as: Wound Care, Childhood Immunisations, and Flu Vaccines.
