A doctor (GP) is at the Centre on Tuesdays, 2pm – 7pm (by appointment only). The doctor bulk bills through the Medicare Scheme. Most pathology tests are also bulk billed but you may be required to pay for some medical tests. The GP will inform you about charges during your appointment.
GP appointments are booked for 20 minutes: please arrive on time for your appointment. Some consultations may be complex & take longer. Please be patient if you are waiting for your appointment.
Post-natal appointments with a baby require a 40-minute appointment to enable the doctor to perform a thorough check-up of mother and baby.
Our doctor specialises in women’s health issues including pap smears, breast checks, contraception, pregnancy tests, unplanned pregnancy, screening and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, menopause management, post-natal checks, sexual health, fertility, vaginal and urinary tract infections (UTI), bladder function, menstrual (period) problems.
The doctor does not provide crisis or emergency health care and are not available for general medical issues, such as colds and flu.
All consultations are confidential except:
- If you are under 14 years old.
- If you are under 16 years old and have a sexually transmitted disease, are pregnant, or the doctor believes you to be at risk she is legally required to notify the Department of Family and Community Services.
- If your medical records are subpoenaed by the legal system (court).
If you are listed on the same Medicare card as your parent/family/guardian it is possible (but unlikely) for other adults on the Medicare card to know that you visited our doctor. If you are aged 15 years or over, you can get your own Medicare card free of charge through Medicare Australia.
If you need an interpreter, please inform the receptionist when booking your appointment. The doctor will use the free, confidential Telephone Interpreter Service (TIS).
