Clinic Services

When you are suffering from an unexpected illness or injury, or when you simply require general medical attention we can, on most occasions, offer you same day appointments.  Our professional team of Doctors, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals is equipped to handle a comprehensive range of urgent medical conditions, injuries and routine illness.

 

We have a commitment to excellence when it comes to the level of care we provide to the local Community.

 

Out of surgery visits

Home visits are limited due to the scheduling of surgery based appointments.  Where possible it is beneficial for patients to attend the surgery but in exceptional circumstances home visits can be arranged on discussion with your GP.  

 

 

Repeat prescriptions

Regular medications can be obtained without seeing your Doctor if you are reviewed on a regular basis.  24 hours notice is required to complete request.  If you are unable to wait 24 hours please make an appointment.  A $7.50 fee is charged at the time of collection.  

 

 

Test results

Our Practice has a system in place for the follow up and review of clinically significant test results.
