Appointment

Appointments can be made by calling our clinic during business hours. We are open 7 days a week, with appointments available from 9am - 7pm &
weekends 9am - 1pm. (Walkin's Welcome)

Helpful Tips:


  • Please make a separate appointment for each person that requires a consultation, even if you are seeing the same doctor.
  • Please ensure GP and Dental appointments are not mixed up.
  • If you have a number of things to discuss or require more time with the doctor please ask for a long appointment.
  • Urgent appointments are available if you are ill or injured on the day and is based on the urgency. Our nurses will speak with you about your needs and organise a suitable appointment.
  • If you or a family member requires an interpreter service we can organise it for you. Please make us aware when booking your appointment. For further information please see Interpreter Services Section here.

Getting the most out of your appointment ….


There are a number of things you can do to ensure you get the most out of your appointment:


  • Write a list of the things you want to see your doctor about
  • Check your scripts prior to coming. Ask your pharmacist if you have any repeat scripts left when you get scripts filled, and ring for an appointment as you fill your last
    repeat. That way you won’t run out of medication before your next appointment.
  • Hand the list of your health concerns and any scripts or referrals you need to your doctor at the start of the consultation.
  • Please be aware it is not always possible to attend to everything in one consultation, and you may need to make a subsequent appointment/s to properly attend to
    everything
