    Do NOT text or use Facebook

  2. Our receptionist records your details

    Your details will be taken by one of our receptionists along with a description of your medical concern and payment for the visit (see below). A description of your medical concern will be asked to ensure the Doctor has everything they need to help. If you feel uncomfortable doing this you do not need to give a reason but there may be a risk the Doctor cannot help you 100% at the time of the consult. 

    Please note medical advice cannot be given over the phone, you will need to wait for the doctor to visit.

  3. Your appointment is scheduled

    A telehealth appointment will be scheduled with the doctor. You will be emailed a link to access the telehealth consult. 

  4. You call us if your condition changes

    Please contact us or call 000 if your medical condition or health status changes or if you need to cancel* the appointment whilst waiting for the doctor.

  5. Patient forms are completed

    Complete a New Patient Registration Form or if it’s been 12 months since you last completed a patient details form, complete a Current Patient Update Details Form

  6. Home Visit or Telehealth is scheduled

    Please click the Telehealth link 5 minutes prior to your appointment time to ensure everything is working correctly. When the GP is ready to begin your consult they will invite you into the virtual consulting room. We ask for your patience, as sometimes our doctors may run late.

    If you require a prescription we will send the prescription directly to your chosen pharmacy. The pharmacy will call you to collect payment and organise delivery or your medication or instruct you how to pick it up safely from them.

    All referrals will be sent directly to the specialist on your behalf. If it is a private specialist, please call them to schedule your appointment.

  7. A home visit is organised post Telehealth if needed

    If the doctor decides a face to face consult needs to occur after the Telehealth Consult, the doctor will organise it if it is safe.

*Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend for a scheduled appointment, please contact us to cancel or change your appointment time asap. We expect 24 hours notice for cancellations.
