ABOUT YOUR VISIT
Preparation for your appointment
Selected doctors now taking new patients!
We are a private billing practice. Please be aware that you may need to pay for your consultation. Concession cards are welcomed, without a concession card bulk billing is at the discretion of the consulting GP. Please speak with reception staff regarding specialist and allied health appointments as these usually incur a fee.
We share the responsibility to make sure your test results are acted upon if needed. Our nursing or reception staff will contact you if there is anything abnormal with the results. If you do not hear from us you can assume your results are normal however it is encouraged to book an appointment with your GP to follow them up. Results are not given over the phone by request.
In order to obtain a medical certificate you must have a consult with a GP. Medical certificates will not be backdated.
Under the Privacy Legislation Act you are able to access your personal health information by making an appointment with your doctor, records can then be released once discussed. Please be aware of our collection statement which outlines our policy and procedures regarding patient confidentiality.
MULTI-DISCIPLINARY APPROACH TO ALL YOUR HEALTH CARE NEEDS
Please ensure you check to see when you are running out of medication. In the interest of our patients health our doctors will not issue a prescription without an appointment. If there is a personal agreement between yourself and the GP for reoccurring scripts and the GP is happy to do the scripts without a consultation there will be a $20 fee.
For general enquiries please email through to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note this email is for general enquiries only, all appointments must be made by phoning.
As a busy practice our books fill up very quickly, if you need to cancel an appointment please notify one of our reception staff so that it can be offered to another patient in need. While our GP appointments do not incur a cancellation/non attendance fee some of our specialist appointments do.
Cancellation Policy for Philippa Scott and Srijan Sinha:
We require more than 24 hours’ notice to cancel or reschedule a consultation with Philippa Scott and Srijan Sinha without incurring any extra fees. As 1 hour is reserved for you please be courteous in giving as much notice to reschedule so that the appointment can be offered to another needful patient on the waiting list.
