- New telehealth services providing GP consultations over the phone has been approved by medicare and are now available. These appointments allow patients to consult with their GPs over the phone to decrease their risk of infection in the waiting room. Our doctors are all performing face to face consultations with COVID prevention measures, but for patients who would prefer a phone consultation instead of a face to face appointment, telehealth appointments are available. Due to the withdrawal of medicare payment support for at risk patients from 1/10/2020, an out of pocket fee will apply to telehealth consultations. Telehealth appointment attract the same medicare rebate as Face-to-face appointments ($38.20)

- You must be a patient of our clinic for this service.
If you would like to book for one of these appointments, the receptionist will give you an appointment time and the doctor will ring you for the consultation as close to that time as possible.
