FEE CHANGES AS OF 01/07/2019
As of the 1st July 2019, there will be some private fees changes for consultation and services. Please refer to the "Fees tab" on our website for some further information and on our Information Screen in-clinic for full updated details.
Also as of 1st July 2019, there will be no bulkbilling for any Saturday nurse appointments for patients aged 12 years - 65 years.
This will include appointments for Immunisations, Ear Syringing & Dressings etc. The fee for a nurse consultation on a Saturday will be charged at the current medicare rebate amount. There will also be a separate invoice charged for a nurse treatment room fee which is a non-rebate amount. Both invoices need to be paid on the day of consultation.
Aged Pensioners, disability pensioners and Veteran Affairs patients will still have Saturday Nurse appointments bulkbilled.
Due to changes in accreditation requirements we now need each patient’s verbal consent to send SMS reminders. Please contact reception to give your consent and note that you will not be able to receive SMS reminders, including those for upcoming appointments with your GP, until this has been done. Thanks for your cooperation.
