We value all our patients and will always try to get you into your GP when you need them. But to do this, we need your help.

A cancellation fee of $25 applies if you can't make it to your appointment. However this will be waived if you contact the practice no less than 2 hours’ before the appointment. This allows other patients the opportunity to pick up your appointment time. Naturally, exceptional circumstances will be considered.

If you Fail to Attend your booked appointment, our clinic has a No-Show Policy where a non-refundable fee of $25.00 will be charged to you. We value all our patients and we do have others who could have used that time with our GPs that you booked and did not attend.

WHY IS THERE AN OUT OF POCKET COST?

CHILDHOOD IMMUNISATION

Immunisations are health initiatives which involve developing the body’s immunity to prevent certain diseases.  Immunisation for children is considered a vital part of well-baby healthcare visits in Australia as it serves to prevent serious, sometimes, fatal illnesses such as meningitis, polio, tetanus, measles, influenza, and diphtheria which resulted in a high rate of child death in the past.

 

MedCentral GP Clinic is equipped with all necessary vaccines and we support and recommend that the Standard Immunisation Schedule as set out by the Department of Health is undertaken by every child in our clinic.

APPOINTMENTS

We will try to make you an appointment with a doctor of your preference as soon as possible.

 

Please remember that some of our doctors work part-time.

If there is more than one person to see the doctor, or if you have several problems to discuss, we recommend you book an extended appointment; a regular appointment is 10 mins.

 

Doctors at MedCentral GP Clinic attempt to run on time. However varying needs of patients and those with acute ill health often affect our ability to run on 10-minute appointments. Longer consultations are always available. Please ask staff to arrange a longer consultation if you require more complex consultations or multiple concerns.

 

Options are available for persons who would prefer not to wait in the communal waiting room. Check with our friendly staff.

RECALL REMINDER SYSTEM

When your doctor orders any tests the results of these tests are received in a digital format in most situations. Depending on the test it can take a few days or longer to receive these test reports. Our doctors will check test results and reports every day and decide what action to take.

 

If the result requires urgent care, then we will contact you immediately. This is why it is important to keep your contact details up to date with reception.

 

If the report is not urgent but should be discussed then we will send you an SMS or our nurse will call you requesting you to make an appointment so we can discuss the report. This is not urgent but should be done as soon as practical.

 

If the report is normal or there is no significant issue then we will take no action or send you an SMS advising you of it. This means you are not required to make an appointment to see your doctor for the test results. However, if you are concerned or feeling worse than we encourage you to make an appointment to go through your results regardless of whether they are normal or not.

TEST RESULTS

Will not be given over the phone, however if your results are not normal someone will contact you to make an appointment for a review. If you would like to discuss your results with the doctor even though they may be normal you will need to make an appointment

PATIENT REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS AND REFERRALS

Please make an appointment with one of our GPs if you need to renew a prescription. Even if it is something that you may have been prescribed regularly, it is important that you have a consultation with your doctor. This is so we can assess if your medication is still necessary and whether the dose is correct. This is a safety issue and is very important even if you have been on the same medication for years.

 

Similarly, you are required to make an appointment with your GP if you need a referral to your specialist, so that we can keep your specialist up to date with your care.

 

In the event of you misplacing or losing your recently issued prescription or referral letter, your doctor may be able to provide you with another without an appointment. However, please note that a small administrative fee may be charged.
