Fees and Polices

Fees

 

From Monday 24 May 2021 the practice will be privately billing all Adult new patients $75.00 for a standard consultation and $120 for a long consultation.  All children under 16 years of age will continue to be bulk-billed.

There will be no changes to the bulk billing for existing patients.

 

First-time Patients

 

If you are new to the practice you may need a long appointment at your first consultation to enable you to bring the GP up to date with your medical history. If the consultation is for something simple i.e. ear ache, script repeat etc. you will probably only require a standard appointment. Please arrive early to the practice on the day of your first appointment so that you have time to complete a new patient form and a records request form. For your convenience you can now download them by clicking on the links below, print, complete and bring them to your first appointment.

Appointments

 

We run an appointment system, but keep a few times open to fit in urgent problems.

You can make an appointment with your doctor by booking online here or by telephoning the surgery on (07) 5306 1201. Urgent medical problems will be dealt with promptly.

Appointments are normally made at 15 minute intervals, so you can usually expect to spend 10-15 minutes with your doctor. Longer appointments in excess of 15 minutes are available and are usually arranged for complete physicals or other examinations for specific purposes (eg: Management and Care Plans, Post natal checks for mother and baby, insurance or employment medicals, procedures and some immunisations, Centrelink forms and any other paperwork) Please check your need for a longer consultation with our receptionist prior to making your appointment.

Unless it is urgent, it is advisable to book your appointment well in advance to enable you to book the doctor and time of your choice. Whilst we endeavour to answer all your telephone calls promptly, at certain times our lines may be busy or our receptionist taking another call. When this occurs you will be advised by a recorded message and you will be attended to as soon as possible.
