Booking your appointment

The appointment system is structured to provide the best chance for patients to see their doctor when they need to be seen. Some appointments are kept free such that they may only be booked on the day. This enables patients who are acutely ill to be seen promptly. Our online appointments are generally available one to two weeks in advance.

For prescription or referral requests, please make an appointment to come in  or have a telehealth consultation. With any significantly abnormal results that require further action we will endeavour to ask you to come in for an appointment soon after the results are seen by the doctor. Thus it is suggested you wait at least a week before requesting results.

Please be aware that not all doctors will refer for terminations. You will need to check with reception to book with the appropriate doctor.

New patients

We welcome new patients and suggest you pick up forms from the practice prior to your visit or download them below. These can be filled out at home prior to your appointment and then brought with you.

It may also be appropriate to request notes from your previous practice, however these may take a couple of weeks to arrive. 

A provision has been made for special appointments, such as skin lesion removals and counselling. If you require an extended appointment, please inform the receptionist of your needs when booking an appointment.

Existing patients

Emergency / Urgent or After Hours appointments

If you are experiencing severe chest pain, significant shortness of breath, have sustained a fracture, or any other medical emergency, dial 000 or go to Peel Health Campus for emergency treatment.

For after hours care, please contact Get Better Doctors on 1800 238 837, who provide Urgent Care after hours.

If you don’t have an appointment but have a medical condition that requires immediate attention (or if a patient is less than one year of age), please inform our reception. You will be asked to come in for the practice nurse to provide an assessment, who will then fit you in with an available doctor on that day or arrange an appointment on another day. You will not be guaranteed your regular doctor, as it is an emergency appointment.

For GP appointments outside of our normal hours, you can  contact an after hours home visit service. These services are only designed for urgent issues – not those that can wait until the next day. They include Get Better, Dial A Doctor, and  After Hours GP. 

For general advice on after hours appointments, please contact Health Direct on 1800 022 222 or visit their HealthDirect Online Symptom Checker.

Longer appointments that are missed may result in higher fees. Fees listed are average practice fees. Individual doctors may charge differently.

  • Level C (appointments from 20 – 40 minutes) – $80.10 – $140

If not, the receptionists can take your details and pass them onto the doctor for them to return your call when available.

Please note: Doctors can be extremely busy throughout the day so they may not call back until the next day. If your call is urgent we recommend booking an appointment to see your doctor instead.

How does the practice appointment reminder system and recalls work?

We offer a free SMS text messaging service, that allows patients who have registered their mobile number with reception to receive a SMS reminder message the day before the next booked appointment.

Recall SMS reminders are sent every day for non-urgent reminders. If you do not have a mobile number registered you will receive a recall/reminder letter for pap smears, diabetes reviews etc. which are posted out by our nurses when the patient is shown to be due to see their doctor for this.

How do I get urgent results?

For all urgent results either a nurse or doctor will call the patient to give them their results over the phone or let them know they need to attend for a follow up appointment. If the patient does not answer or the phone number is incorrect/disconnected then a letter will be sent in the post to the patient’s listed address letting the patient know they need to contact the practice immediately . Messages can only be left when your name is stated on the answering service.
