Walk –in appointments: Walk -ins will be allocated the first available consultation and will be required to wait.
Test Results: If your doctor has ordered blood tests or other investigations, it is in the best interest of your health to have these tests carried out promptly. It is also important that you phone the surgery to follow up on these tests and obtain results. Your doctor will usually leave a message with reception or nursing staff regarding your test results and whether they would like you to make a follow up appointment. If your results are abnormal (but do not require urgent attention), your doctor will send you a sms or letter asking you to make an appointment to discuss them. If your results require urgent attention, the practice will phone you.
Reminder System: For the continuing management of our patient’s health, we utilise a systematic reminder system with your consent to provide health promotion, preventative care, and early detection of disease. Please see reception staff if you would not like to receive these reminders.
After Hours and Emergency Care/Home Visits: Should you require urgent medical care outside our normal operating hours, the mobile number for the rostered Practice Doctor on call is 0407163706.
Home visits are available in certain circumstances. Your doctor will decide if a home visit may be appropriate should the need arise. If you feel a home visit may be necessary, please speak to reception staff who will discuss this with your doctor.
Communication/Telephone Policy: If you wish to contact your doctor during consulting hours, please feel free to do so. A message will be taken by the reception staff and passed on. It must be known that most of the time the Doctors are extremely busy, and your telephone call will be returned as soon as possible. If it is an emergency and contact must be made immediately, please inform the reception staff and they will do their best to put the phone call through.
Patients who require communication services: If you or a family member require an interpreter service, we can provide this for you. Please inform reception if you require any of these services. For more information on this service phone 131450 or visit www.tisnational.gov.au
Patient Feedback: A suggestion/complaint box is located on our front reception desk.. All comments, complaints and feedback will be used to improve the quality of care and service provided by the practice; if you have a few moments to spare whilst waiting for your appointment, please complete one of these feedback forms and place in the box provided. Alternatively, if you would like to discuss an issue in person, please feel free to ask to speak to the practice manager or one of the practice principals regarding your concerns.
