    Home and Other Visits

    Home visits are available for regular patients of this practice whose condition prevents them from attending the clinic (within a 10km radius).
    A fee may be charged if not on a pension or health care card.

    Telephone Access

    GP's in the practice may be contacted during normal opening hours. If the GP is with a patient, a message will be taken and the reception staff will advise you when it is likely that the GP will return your call. In an emergency your call will always be put through to a GP.

    Immunisations

    Our immunisations nurse will be available for childhood immunisations on Mondays 9.00am to 1.00pm. An appointment is necessary and you should bring your child's "blue book".
    Alternate arrangements can be made if this day and time does not suit.
    Free influenza vaccinations are available seasonally for patients aged 65 years or older.

    Prescriptions

    Appointments are necessary for regular repeat prescriptions. If no appointment is made there may be up to a 20 minute wait.
    An appointment is required for Authority and Workers Compensation related scripts.

    Reminder System

    Our practice is committed to preventative care. Reception staff will seek your permission to be included in our reminder system. We may issue you with a reminder notice from time to time offering you preventative health services appropriate to your care.
    We also use State and Federal reminder systems such as the Pap Test Register. If you do not wish to be part of this system please let your doctor or receptionist know.
