The clinic is easily accessible from the car park with no steps to negotiate and wide front doors for easy wheelchair access.
We allow 10 to 15 minutes for a normal consultation. If you feel you need a longer time please let the staff member know when making the appointment and we can book a double appointment time. Longer appointments will be required when booking for an insurance medical, employment medical, complete health check, heavy vehicle driving medical or taxi medical. Minor surgical procedures, including Implanon removal or insertion also will need a double appointment booked.
So we can assist you appropriately please let the staff know if you have an urgent medical problem e.g chest pain, acute asthma/difficulty breathing, extreme/acute pain.
If you are not able to keep your appointment we would appreciate a phone call to let us know. We may be able to give your appointment to someone else who is in need of a Doctors appointment.
We can organise a translating service please let us know when booking your appointment if you require a translator or are hearing impaired and need a NABS interpreter booked.
