After hours: Outside the hours listed above, medical services are provided by the independent private medical service Family Care, phone 137 425. Family Care's current policy is to charge a fee for patients over 16 years of age without a Health Care Card or Pension Card. See their website for details

We are NOT a hospital or emergency department. In a medical emergency, phone 000 and ask for an ambulance.

We bulk bill all our patients and do not charge for our clinical services.

Our policy is to ask all new patients 'Are you of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin?'

We encourage patients to make an appointment, but we also accept 'drop in' patients, although you might have to wait longer to be seen.

As a general rule, we are unable to provide home visits or nursing home visits.

We provide comprehensive family medical care, from pregnancy and newborn babies through to older people and palliative care. Our doctors perform some office-based procedures such as skin excisions and freezing, joint injections, plasters for broken bones and contraceptive implants. Some of these may not be possible at the original visit-reception will re-book you to come back for a longer appointment.

We have a number of medical specialists who visit our clinic.

We have a particular focus on preventative health, and our nurses may approach patients or accompanying family members to ask if they have enough time to do a 'health check'. Your doctor will still deal with the reason you came into our clinic, but you will also spend an extra 30-45 minutes getting a general checkup. We aim to do a health check on every patient, every year. Our research has shown us that this really does help improve health outcomes.

We are very careful about prescribing potentially addictive medications such as sleeping tablets and morphine-like drugs, and doctors will only provide these to established patients, under particular circumstances.

For more information, please ask your doctor, nurse or our receptionists. We are always happy to help.
