HOW TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

Telephone 02 6785 1095 or you can book online.
Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred time and doctor. We reserve a number of appointments with each doctor each day for urgent matters, which must and will be given priority.

The practice works on 15 minute appointments. Longer consultations are available if necessary and time permits, so please tell our receptionist when making an appointment if you think you may require extra time. 

Our Doctors try to run on schedule and not keep patients waiting, however, sometimes delays are unavoidable and we appreciate your patience when this occurs. If you have time restrictions, please phone ahead to check on probable waiting times.

Please be aware that our Doctors are required to be ON-CALL for emergencies at the Hospital on a rostered basis. This may affect your consultation and/or waiting time. We appreciate your respect and patience during a medical emergency. 

We have a Practice Nurse available Monday to Friday for wound care, vaccinations, childhood immunisations, cervical screening, ECG’s, INR management, medical observations and acute triage, spirometry, chronic disease management and Health Assessments.
