We make every effort to accommodate your preferred time with your GP.  however emergencies do occur, and though every effort is made to keep to appointment times, emergencies will be given priority.  Our staff will attempt to contact you if unforeseen delays occur.


Please let your receptionist know if you need a longer consultation. We strive to make sure we give each patient the time they need to prevent taking up the time of other patients. If in doubt, always ask our receptionists when making an appointment.
Examples of longer consultations include (but are not limited to):
• skin cancer checks and procedures
• pregnancy and antenatal check
• insurance medicals
• pap smears
• mental health consults
• mirena insertion/implanon insertions/removals
• a ‘list’ of health checks or concerns

For various reasons Doctors may require ECG, lung function test, or even cardiovascular disease tests including the 24 hr BP monitoring.

Our clinic is well-equipped for this, and employ well trained nurses to conduct these procedures.


Test results are generally available within one week of the test being performed. However, there are certain tests that take considerably longer.

In most circumstances, if your doctor has ordered blood tests or medical imaging, you are required to make a follow-up appointment to discuss the results personally. This enables us to maintain a high standard of medical care and ensures patient confidentiality, as it can be difficult to identify a person and convey test or scan results clearly over the phone. Also due to the privacy policy we do not provide the results over the phone. We do send a reminder when the test results are ready via text message. If your test results are abnormal and it is an urgent matter, your doctor will contact you in person to discuss these issues with you. Sometimes, your doctor may be away or off sick. If you had tests or medical imaging done and you have not been advised about the result or have any follow-up appointment scheduled with your doctor, please contact our reception to arrange an appointment with one of our other doctors to discuss the results with you.


If you need a script, a repeat of a script or a referral letter to a specialist from your GP, please make an appointment with your Dr.
