It's still 'flu season!

Australia is just coming out of its winter and has seen a significant increase in the number of patients with flu - 200,000 cases and more then 100 deaths. The impact of flu on Australia is an accurate indicator of what we might expect during our winter.

The flu vaccination can help protect you and you may be entitled to have it. We still have plenty in stock so if you are over 65, pregnant or in an 'at risk' group, please book an appointment. You can call us on 023 92583302. Please ensure you have your 'flu vaccination at the Medical Centre. Doing so means that a record of your vaccination is put on your medical record, we can check that you are well and we are doing everything possible for your health.

We Can Text You!

We are using our text messaging service more and more, to invite you for a review, blood test or let you know if a GP would like to see you. You can also you use it to cancel appointments, decline or accept services and let us know if we are doing a good job! Please make sure we have your up to date contact details.

Appointments

appointmentsWe are constantly trying to improve patient access to the doctors. Currently, we offer morning and afternoon emergency walk-in clinics, based on a team approach (one Doctor and one Practice Nurse).

This clinic is open between 8.30am and 10.00am each weekday morning and each weekday afternoon between 3.00pm and 4.30pm.

This clinic is for urgent problems only.  Please do not attend for repeat prescriptions, continuation of sick certificates, medical reports etc.

We also offer routine appointments that may be booked up to two weeks in advance.

Each month we have a large number of people who do not attend and do not let us know that they cannot make their appointments. These are wasted appointments which delay others from obtaining appointments they may urgently need. Please help us by telephoning or cancelling your appointment on line  as soon as you realise you cannot attend.

We now have a text message reminder service, so please make sure we have an up to date mobile number. This service was introduced to help lower our rate of non-attendance.
